The techies seem to have missed this one. I'm just making a shot in the dark - might prompt someone who knows what they're talking about.
Have you tried opening up the case and checking/reseating all connections?
CPU fan working?
Reseat RAM modules?
CMOS battery OK?

And are the hdds in RAID, and does it have SCSI??

If not, disable both in the BIOS.

Or pull the battery out for a few mins, set the BIOS to default settings and reconfigure the settings.
