    Anyone run into this problem? My new machine will not finish POST at
    random. It will do one of three things:

    1. Blank screen with fans running
    2. Freeze after detecting or counting RAM
    3. Overclocking has failed! message [I am running at stock]

    This happens with 0907 BiOS or 1004 BIOS. It several resets/off button
    pushes to boot into Windows. I have tried various timings to no avail. I
    have reset the CMOS and taken out the battery several times to no avail.
    Any ideas?
