We had the same problem with 4 of the 6 Tomcats we've
had. All were solved by getting replacement cache modules
and/or motherboards. I strongly suggest replacing both -
since older revision motherboards had multiple design bugs
and really poor assembly. Also don't forget to upgrade to
the newer Award Bios - I have v3.0 - works great!
