Question about Intel D915PCY Motherboard
This is the first (and only) computer I ever built. I have the Intel Desktop Utilities installed on it, and when it sets off the alarm for processor getting hot I clean it out. It has worked for 2-3 years now. However, after cleaning out one time it started displaying this symptom: when shut off, it won't start the next morning until the power button is pushed over-and-over...sometimes two pushes starts it, and sometimes 50 pushes. On someone's advice, I unplugged everything from the motherboard and tried starting unit - started on first push. Plugged in devices one by one until it wouldn't start. Found that when network card is removed from motherboard, unit powers up on first push of power button every time...but when card is installed problem occurs. Any ideas?
Based on what you said, network card is not the main problem it is on the expansion slot where you had put the network card. My advice is that you should try putting your network card on other expansion slot or try another card (which is working) and put in on the slot to where you previously put your network card and if it doesn't work, that slot may have been damaged or it may have dirt inside.
