Quoted from mattster:

Will do.

It's prompting me to enter F1 to skip warning or press DEL key to enter BIOS.

what warning is coming up? it's the no keyboard one that is easy to turn off.

You can disable that warning in your BIOS. Go to the "Standard CMOS Features" section 1.6 "Halt On" and change it from "all errors" to "all errors but"

Your computer needs more testing. If it were mine I would disconnect it from the pinball machine and run Linux from a USB stick to see if the computer randomly reboots while testing. If it does, you have a PC problem. If it doesn't, you have a pinball component problem.

Ok guys, here's what I did. Went to BIOS and it's already set to "all errors but". However, the keyboard and mouse were disabled. I enabled the mouse and keyboard and now it boots up all the way!

Played about a ten minute game and didn't reset. I'll give it a workout this weekend to see if the reset problem persists.

Thanks everybody for your time and patience. The collective knowledge base on this site is amazing and it's so cool that you guys are willing and eager to help.

That kind of lock up can be caused by bad RAM or a bad hard drive. I would run disk check on the hard drive itself and there are tools to do a memory check of every bit. RAM is cheap enough if it keeps happening I would replace the ram chips.

Good luck and hopefully everything will work out.

I use Memtest86 when I test RAM. http://www.memtest86.com/
