    I think the ram sticks are clean and the same with the sockets as I have inserted and removed them countless times. (and yes I have been very careful of static problems)

    I have run a complete system test downloaded from the manufacture, it ran every test you can think of, ram, CPU, motherboard, hard disk, DVD player SATA connections and anything else in that PC, all tested out fine....The only thing it could not test is the power supply, and I cant test it as it has a 14 pin main motherboard connector, my power supply tester has the standard 24 pin, I have ordered an adapter cable (24 pin to 14) to try a standard PC power supply, (I have several good ones lying around) if that works then it's a google search for a replacement PS.

    I hope this is the problem as I'm getting quite tired of working on this one, and I really cant give it back half working.

    Unknown if this program has any spyware. So use at own risk.
    I have a program called Core Temp
    It will show you temp of individual cores. 'C or 'F, as well as load.
    Power of Graphics and DRAM etc.
    Shows your TDP.
    Also the VID and frequency of each core.
    Also shows the individual numbers in the Taskbar.
    It may also be a program someone created that just changes the numbers every once and a while, and just looks like it is working.

    Yah Auggie, I found one on the US eBay, it's on it's way, guaranteed good and tested. (I hope)

    And ttboy, I use a similar program, it shows just about everything for the CPU, I can't remember the name as I'm not on the test PC.

    Terryl Did you solve that PC problem with New PS you ordered off of US eBay ?

    Well sorry I havent been back to this thread, but the power supply was not the problem, after conversations with the CS tech I found out that the motherboard was the problem.

    Testing found that the +12 DC voltage to the CPU was too low, it should have been closer to +12 volts but was measured at +9 volts, what we could not figure out was why it worked after a ram change out, (add or subtract a stick) further testing found that the +12 volt voltage comparator chip was at fault, it would detect the DC load change and reset, but when you turn the PC off and back on it would look at the stored voltages and say "oooh thats not right" and not let the PC to post.

    Found a new motherboard on Ebay for $38, replaced it and the PC worked fine, customer was very happy as it was 1000% faster with the new SSD drive then before with the old hard drive.

    This motherboard has onboard DC voltage regulators for the +12, +5, +3 and -5 voltages,(voltage inverter) it's not like a normal PC motherboard that gets it's DC voltages from a standard PC power supply.
