Windows 7: Computer doesn't POST occasionally

When you have time, reseat your RAM modules and any add-in cards like video. Then double check all your power and data cables to be sure they are firmly connected. External USB devices have been know to cause a failed POST so check those as well, or even unplug what you're not using and see if the problem goes away. Cables, plugs, modules and add-in cards can get moved by heat and vibration. It one of them develops an intermittent connection it will be an intermittent problem. Be careful to avoid an ESD while checking things inside the case. ESD = Electrostatic Discharge.

I think the new PSU did the trick. YAYY
