I finally got around to installing a new heatsink+fan for the cpu and
applied a fresh layer of Arctic Silver. But now the system would not
stay ON for more than 3 seconds. After a few attempts, it managed to

reaction was "Mobo got fried". But then I decided to swap out my ATI
9200SE for nvidia Geforce N6200. This did the trick. I got the video
So all along, it was probably the video card dying slow death and
causing all sorts of hang up and shut down problems. I haven't had any

5 years old by now.
Thanks for all the input.
