Have fun tracking it down. I just had a Desktop box fail (No Nothing)
here after being off for a month and it was solved by cleaning the video
card , memory and network contacts. We are in Hawaii where it is cool at
night and warm in the day and our office is only screens so its open to
the elements. Sometimes the corrosion gets to the contacts and I have to
clean the cards and connectors with alcohol and up it comes.
