Hi,

this is very strange - 1 out of appx. every 3 times my comp freezes at bootup screen, just as the memory timings show up and before the HDDs are detected. Sometimes 1 restart is enough to get it working again, other times 2-3 will do. I think this started happening after I swapped video cards.

Any ideas what could be wrong?

What power supply are you using could be bad, and I would removed everything but the video and mobo and ram and see if it post.

could be a usb device you have plugged in. I know Ipods will do that.
