Question doesnt boot first time, boots second time.

My computer starts then after POST clicks out and stays on black screen going nowhere.I power off and it will start fine 2nd or 3rd time ok. This is the history-recently took out a second Redhat 9 HDD, repaired the MBR and Bootsector on xp HDD, as GRUB was boot manager. Now it wont boot 1st time in the day. Before Redhat all was fine. AMD Athlon xp 2400+, Epox 8K3A+ ,768 RAM (256,512) Winxp Pro sp1 latest updates and patches. Virus and spyware scanned.
Is there anything else to try besides a reformat?

Replaced it this morning before first boot with a new Codegen 400 watt i had just bought for another machine and it booted without a problem. I put the Xsonic in that other machine (Pent 2, 300mhz) and it booted that machine without a problem although it is a very noisy power supply and always has been. Seems like this was the problem it is still under warranty so ill send it off. Thanks.
