This system will not begin boot process until 20 minutes have passed. then will boot normally. Cannot get into BIOS until this starts after 20 minutes approx.
Have loaded failsafe defaults.
All the usual things have been done. battery replaced, cmos reset, power supply, memory and video all changed. CPU reseated with thermal paste. post card shows little progress until 20 minutes.
Phoenix D0 or C1 error code. No prior codes.

Does it get as far as the POST before freezing? What chipset is the motherboard using?

I am going to flash the bios and this probably will not work. Upon reflection i think nobus is correct  When you think about how capacitors work the behaviour does correspond. the fact that it will boot probably says the bios is fine.
The machine will boot eventually and any test you throw at it will succeed. ie memory, cpu or motherboard tests
