The only other thing that I do before I brought the computer in is to make sure that the computer has no imput drives or divices.  Then restart from the back or the computer.

when i first got my computer, it was kinda like that... hehe.. after hours of techsupport (useless) I finally ripped the thing apart myself.  Turned out that the CPU was loose... make sure it is snapped securely in place.  Ever since, i've done all my own techsupport and now a make a living at it... hope that helps, but it is a long shot.
