I agree that the power supply is suspect. You

I have a new one on the way. I'll reply here with the results.
Well, brand new power supply and the system behaves the same
problematic way as before.
So next try is the memory, as another list reply suggested. I've had
memtest86 running against both DIMMs for 47+ hours and counting, 70
total passes so far, and 0 errors. Remember I'd already tried
removing first one DIMM, then the other, and the problem repro'd
either way. So by these measures it'd seem the memory is OK? I know
some mem problems take days to show up so I'll just leave this running
for a couple more days anyway.
Not much more I can do here, as I've seen repros with most everything
else unplugged so I'm now thinking it must be the motherboard.
Perhaps I will try reseating the CPU--haven't done that yet.
Recall the system is having trouble POST'ing: it hangs at various
points before BIOS POST completes, i.e. I don't get a confirming
'beep' at end of POST and in some cases the monitor won't wake, other
cases the BIOS splash screen stays splashed, etc. The full original
email is here:
Anyway, if anyone has other ideas here I'd welcome them.
