Thank you very much for the quick reply Frank. The light bulb just went on when you mentioned the possibility of the capacitors going dry.
That power supply failure and replacement I mentioned was preceeded many months by the PC not booting when it was unplugged for a while when I had to move it around with me from place to place. I remember thinking exactly that at the time -- that the capacitors were probably not holding their charge because I would have to wait about 10 minutes or so after plugging it back in for it to regain enough juice to to start up.
Assuming it may be the motherboard then, and from how you describe it sounds like a good chance, do you have any idea if I may be able to use the existing components on a new motherboard or do you think it's pretty much obsolete now?
