Clarification Request
How old?
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / January 23, 2017 11:03 AM PST

Nothing really stands out here but treat this as the usual THE DEAD PC and remove what is not needed to power up. I would not need the HDD, any USB things and one stick of RAM. Test that.

Also, how old? I've seen a lot of sporadic boot issues with old cmos batteries and old power supplies. Just pop in a new battery (2 buck thing) to be sure it's not that.

That's certainly new information. In that case, try a UPS to stabilise the voltage. Or switch to a laptop with an power adapter can handle varying input voltages, and runs from its battery anyway.

Get an electrician to take a look.
If you have bad power you need to get that fixed.

Had a similar problem with electronic devices turned out to be the input power coming into my house.

The most suspect thing is the motherboard. You can't remove much (except the HD and 1 stick of a 2*4 GB RAM) to see if that makes a difference. If not, it's time to boot from some diagnostic disk to test the motherboard.

I only have one stick of ram. And how to test that it is motherboard's fault?
