Computer will not start

  Hazzar 20:10 26 Aug 2004

My system is, pc 266 systemboard socket A m810
mother board, AMD 1300 processor,512Mb ram, 40Gb
H.D. running Wins 2000 Pro.
When I first switch on my comp. the light for the H.D. comes on and then progress
stops,it does not even reach the bios setup,so I press reset,this time the startup goes from beginning to windows start up then progress stops, I press reset and startup goes from beginning to a little further than before then stops, I press, but you know the rest.
After five resets the computer boots and I can use it as though nothing is wrong!
Anybody any idea what is happening?
