No bonesy this is an old Compaq desktop and I think the mother board is generally up that creek

No folks I can boot an XP drive to safe mode just and a a Ubuntu try session but it hangs and I think perhaps the motherboard is shot.

I have tested just about everything else and apart from just reaching 11.8v on the 12v rail I cannot pin it down to anything in particular.

Plus the fact that I cannot diagnose with an OS up and running I might call it a day and ask my mate what he wants to do with tis one. I have an oldish machine I refurbed with 7 on it it I might just let him have for a few bucks.

But thanks for the ideas:)

This sound dumb but do you try it with a DVD?

No Bear just a CD but as per my previous post I think the board has eaten the biscuit as it could only boot the Ubuntu and then just freeze. The HDD was not connected so It couldn't have been it interfering with the OS.

It seems that the XP and the Ubuntu both booted and ran but the system froze soon afterwards.

Oh the memtest I downloaded it but it just would not burn image to disk, I might have to try it on the Sandy Bridge.

The reason I ask because I had to use a DVD to get memory test to burn. I have no idea why it worked that way.
