I smell a conflict.

Go to your Control Panel/System/Device Manager on a boot when it does not work to see if there is a conflict showing. Look for anything yellow or red.  

There is also the chance that you have an intermittent hardware problem.

If you find the conflict, I would be happy to help you resolve it.

This is a post from Technet which describes what that ! means, and how to deal with it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

You can use Device Manager to examine and change software-configurable
devices. This article lists steps you can use to troubleshoot hardware
configuration problems using Device Manager.
 
If the device uses jumper pins or dip switches, you must configure the
device manually.
 
MORE INFORMATION
================
 
To view Device Manager, follow these steps:
 
1. Click the Start button, point to Settings, then click Control Panel.
 
2. Double-click the System icon.
 
3. Click the Device Manager tab.
 
Troubleshooting Information
---------------------------
 
 - If there is a problem with a device, it is listed in the hardware tree
   list under Computer. The problem device has a symbol indicating the
   type of problem:
 
   A black exclamation point (!) on a yellow field indicates the device
   is in a problem state. A device in a problem state can be functioning.
   A problem code explaining the problem is displayed for the device.
 
   A red "X" indicates a disabled device. A disabled device is a device
   that is physically present in the system, consuming resources, but does
   not have a protected-mode driver loaded.
 
   A blue "i" on a white field on a device resource in Computer properties
   indicates that Use Automatic Settings is not selected for the device and
   that the resource was manually selected. It does not indicate a problem
   or disabled state.
 
   NOTE: Some sound cards and video adapters do not report all the
   resources they are using to Windows 95. This can cause Device Manager
   to show only one device in conflict, or no conflicts at all. This can
   be verified by disabling the sound card, or using the standard VGA
   video driver too see if the conflict is resolved. (This is a known
   problem with S3 video cards and 16-bit Sound Blaster sound cards, or
   those sound cards using Sound Blaster emulation for Sound Blaster
   compatibility.)
 
 - When you select a specific device in Device Manager, then click
   the Properties button, you see a property sheet. The property sheet
   has a General tab.
 
   NOTE: Some devices may have other tabs besides the General tab. Not
   all property sheets have the same tabs; some devices may have a
   Resource tab, Driver tab, and Settings tab, or some combination of
   these.
 
   At the top of the property sheet, there is a description of the device.
   When you click the Resource tab, the window in the middle of the tab
   indicates which resource types are available for the selected device.
 
   The scroll box at the bottom of the contains a Conflicting Device list.
   This list indicates a conflict with an error code.
 
 - Note the Use Automatic Settings check box. If Windows 95 successfully
   detects a device, this check box is selected and the device should
   function correctly. However, if the resource settings are based on
   Basic Configuration <n> (where <n> is any number from 0 to 9), it may
   be necessary to change the configuration by selecting a different basic
   configuration from the list. If the particular configuration you want
   for the device is not listed as a basic configuration, it may be
   possible to click the Change Settings button to manually adjust the
   resource values.
 
   For example, to edit the Input/Output Range setting, use these steps:
 
   1. Click the Use Automatic Settings check box to clear it.
 
   2. Click the Change Setting button.
 
   3. Click the appropriate I/O range for the device.
 
Notes
-----
 
 - If you click Computer, then Click properties, you see a property sheet
   with a View Resources and a Reserve Resources tab.
 
   You can use the Reserve Resources tab to exclude a resource from use by
   Windows 95.
 
   The View Resources tab displays the resources allocated by Windows 95
   or inherited from a Plug and Play BIOS or PCI bus computer.
 
 - To disable a device in Device Manager, click the Original Configuration
   (Current) check box to clear it on the General tab in the device's
   properties.
