Perhaps 6 out of 10 times, when I start my PC, it will start up and then stop immediatley for about 4 or 5 seconds and will then run fine.
Any ideas please?

Maybe PSU on the way out.Or check the air vents are not clogged up with dust and fluff.If so Inside will also need a clean out.Make sure all fans are working and clean .

sorry buteman, I should have added that it is a new (4 months) motherboard with PSU, Windows XPpro SP2.

It is very clean inside.
