I've just started having problems with intermittent start-ups. The pc\npowers up but will hang until you cycle the reset or power several\ntimes. Then it boots normally. I've noticed several posts concerning\nthis problem. My system is approx. 2 yrs old and has the latest bios\n2BA5 installed. The most recent change has been the addition of a\n256MB DDR dimm to the already installed 128 one. The new memory is\nViking (so I thought I'd be fairly safe). Like I said though, it will\nrecognize and boot normally (after several attempts).\n\nI also read in a posting that these boards are notorious for the\nbattery going dead. Anyone know if that would cause these boot\nproblems? Please advise.
