Windows 7: Takes 2-4 times power on / off before booting (2 beeps) Mystery

Bill,

You said you'd trouble shot systems for weeks, so I figured I had to break mine again to catch up to you

The video card is only 512 megs.. Not a bad card, but a shame it's not working.

Earlier I took the back off, and when I reattached it, low and behold it worked (for a while).

Then dead again. I'm going to try and put new thermal paste on it this week, and after that, put it in the over for 10 minutes

(hear of that trick?!!#@)

Fingers crossed!

p.s. one good thing about troubleshooting is you learn A LOT in the process, about other things you think it might be

I'd skip the oven.... I've heard of it, but I've heard horror stories too (apripos for Halloween)

It can be an expensive education! As long as you maintain a healthy attitude, it can be fun.
