When i first turn on my PC it fails Power on CPU test. If i turn it of and on again about twice then it will boot up. After that it seems to be fine when i restart and stuff until i turn it off and leave it off for about 5 minutes or more. Im not sure what the problem is. I think it's wierd that it's only failing sometimes and not always. here's my system--

P4 3.0E processor
Asus p4p800-E deluxe motherboard
Albatron Geforce FX5700 256 MB Ram Video Card
1GB OCZ RAM Latency:2-3-2-6

It could be a bad power supply.  If you have an extra PSU lying around, you might try replacing your current one.
