Computer Cold Start

My computer has a hard time starting after it's been shut down and cooled off a bit. Takes about 5 minutes of hiccuping to start. Runs fine when started, even at full load, on it now.
Do you think it is more than likely a solder fracture on the motherboard? That's been my past experience with Honda main relays.
Tested with 2 different HD's to make sure.

Specs

ASRock K7VT4A PRO 462(A) VIA KT400A ATX AMD Motherboard
Athlon XP 1800+ 1 gig
Gigabyte 400mhz ram
CHAINTECH MX440 DDR 128

Computer runs cool

Don't worry, regardless upgrades are on the way, but I am curious what it was though.

Woah. An 1800+ rig. Haven't seen one of those in a while.

Can't help much, but I could certainly say it's something electrical... ;)
