I had a similar problem recently, the PC would sometimes crash and then
not POST - would always have to fiddle inside it. Eventually tracked it
down to a dodgy video card - sometimes the fan on the card wouldn't
power up (probably a dodgy power connector) and this stopped the
machine in it's tracks (presumably an anti-overheating strategy)
