Question about Computers & Internet
My P28 bought off ebay did the same so i removed the ram cards and using a artist fine paintbrush brushed wd40(or q20 or any lubricant of this type)into the card slots onto the pins and replaced the memory.Next i removed the cpu cover and then 4 screws holding the cpu heatsink down and cleaned off the heatsink paste from the cpu and heatsink then replaced it with fresh paste and that seems to have worked and solved my problem.Out of intrest the paste was hard and tacky .

sorry i got to this post so late. you are indeed correct dry joints around the cpu socket (we get tons of these all with this exact problem), this is a well know fault (but you knew i would say that) and has been fixed in the past by reflowing the mainboard, anyhalf decent repair store should be able to arrange this.
sorry this is not much help.
