The problem became more frequent, and this morning I discovered that I cannot boot the system to completion.  The machine is still running, but the video signal to the monitor seems to be cut.  I thought this may just be a monitor problem, but I cannot access the machine remotely either.

Have you checked syslog? I'm afraid that it sounds to me like a memory or m/b problem....

     mark, who needs to do something about his wife's m/b....
