Got an RFM that had a new motherboard put in about a year ago. It routinely refuses to fully boot. It gets stuck at "updating game code", and just...sits there. Game plays fine when it finally does boot. Sometimes it seems reseating all the cards helps for a few games, but it could be an illusion. This computer has done it in two different machines. What causes the freeze?

It's supposedly a brand new motherboard, so it shouldn't be the caps. They look fine, but I know looks can be deceiving. Now power supply, I can believe. We have dozens of ATX supplies lying around, so that's worth a test. Thanks for the pic, though.

We have every type of power supply under the sun except that one. Waiting for it to come in. I know I could steal one from a megatouch, but I want a brand new one to rule out any issues.

Contact goo! Well, if the power supply doesn't work, that's the next step. I haven't had any issues with the graphics or resets, though. Just the booting.

Update: Power supply has cables that are too short to reach the motherboard. I had to mount the damn thing upside-down with velcro. Was the only way I could think of securing it without drilling holes in the case. Anyways, game booted up fine, so now it's just a test of time.
