Hi
Running a self build AMD 750 PC with Windows Me
For the last few weeks I have had intermittent boot up probs which go like this.

Press the start (boot up) button.
PC fan starts but nothing else.
Press restart - nothing happens.
Turn off power supply using rear switch.
Turn on rear switch - nothing happens.
Take out power lead, wait 15 secs & re-plug in.
PC boots via scandisk.

There are variants on this whereby it boots 1/4 of the way and freezes.

Occasionally (when warm??) it boots no probs.

I don't know if it's related but modem also needs to dial maybe 6-10 times before achieving connection to NTL (not broadband), esp when cold.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers

Andy
