Removal of the floppy drive meant a perfect boot.
I love a challenge, and the learning that comes with trying to sort it! Can’t put my finger on it but it has happened to me with 3 different motherboards all with AMD processors 2 fideo and one duron. Everything you have described in your problem statement happened for each system.
You’d mentioned you have tried a PCI card too which wouldn’t make a difference in you had adjusted that. Went out and bought a new floppy drive and all was solved. Monitor shorting out the card?

It sometimes takes two or three attempts before starting up.

Once it does start up OK, it will stay on and work fine. Perhaps that might help troubleshoot the problem a bit more. Replying helps further our knowledge, without viceo leaves us wondering.
Would that be an indication of a short circuit? I beginning to think it is the CPU or motherboard. I have yet vodeo find a solution for this problem.

No, it all worked fine for the past 6 months. You could be right there Chris.
Maybe you’ll have to k7vn2 give it a good kick each time you try booting it up. I agree with the PSU suggestion though, that’s what it sounds like Whether it’s a fault on the MB or something else, I don’t know, but it’s OK now, and that’s what matters. Up to now it seems to have done the trick, but my Athlon CPU is only m7vm2 The system board maintains a powered state as long as its connected to an active mains supply, regardless of the switch state.
Any suggestion and push in the right direction will help. It will not boot. I’ve tried another monitor, no joy. I’ve changed the FSB from to Mh.

I don’t think so. The Tek-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Register now while it’s still free! My computer would only power up for about a second and then shut down.
