Darned near anything, but the first things I'd do is:
1) crack the case and make sure there's no "foreign objects" in there that
2) Whilst I'm in there, I'd pull and reseat any chips (RAM, ROM, CPU,
etc.) that are in sockets, and/or cards (Video, interface, etc.) in slots.
You could also remove any cards unnecessary to the basic function of the
machine during testing.
3) Also pull and reseat any cables (floppy, etc.) that exist.
Hope this helps,
