I went through different CPU's, MB's, memory and could not figure it out until I changed the power supply. It had something to do with how much power the graphics card used at boot time with the different outputs. I have no idea why but my problem totally went away after the PS swap. So if you happen to have a spare one just for fun give it a try.

Thanks for the thought. I have tried a different power supply but only one that is 50w more powerful that the one in the machine. Do you recall how powerful the one that would not boot your machine was?
