Swap the hard drive with that of a similar computer.

If the problem moves with the drive, the problem is definately not hardware. This is the simplest, least effort, method to rule out HW.

I did once have a similar problem which turned out to be the video card, which although it was supposedly compatible with the other HW, was too advanced. Swapping it with a cheap card from a newer computer improved the performance of both computers and solved the problem.
