Just following up from my email on Friday about a server that would not 
do a POST.  Well, stripped it down yesteryday to just the CPU and it 
still would not boot.  Took out the PSU and had a look inside and it was 
rather dusty.  Got the vacuum out and gave the PSU a blow and a vacuum 
and plugged it back in and the system came back to life.  Still gave the 
contacts on the CPU and memory a clean. Put it all back together and it 
hasn't missed a beat since. Was only able to give it a good run today 
(10hrs so far today) with not a hint of trouble which is a far cry than 
what its been doing the last couple of weeks.  Keeping my fingers
