It's an old system of mine I haven't used in a few years. It worked fine when I stuck in the closet, but now it's being weird. Sometimes I could make it into Windows but then it'd crash; BSOD. So I threw it back into the closet for another 6 months. Tonight I was looking at it, thinking maybe the capacitors blew. None looked popped as far as I could tell, but I notice the 4-pin power wasn't plugged in. Thinking maybe I had an insufficient power issue earlier, I connected it and booted the system. XP began to load, getting past the boot screen and onto loading Windows. But before it could finish, BSOD. I tried it 3 times and crashed in same place each time. So maybe the install was hosed. I swapped harddrives, nothing. I put the old drive back in, still nothing. Machine won't even POST.
Asus P4P-800E Deluxe
Pentium 4 2.8e (prescott)
2x512GB DDR400 (Crucial I think, copper heat sinks on them)
Gigabyte 128mb GeForce FX5900
Antec 430w psu
no cd-rom is connected right now
I'm cleaning any dust out of the case and reseating everything, but I have a feeling that won't make much difference.
