[OT] Cold Boot Hangs

I have an older computer running an AMD 3200 processor on an MSI 

It had been my Windows XP machine, but I no longer needed it.

I replaced the small drives with three large SATA drives and installed 

During an update (Update Manager) it crashed, and I had to reinstall Ubuntu.

One of the SATA drives would disappear, and I had to switch around the 
cables but it seems stable now.

So the problem that remains is the system will not cold boot (at least 
in 10 minutes).

It hangs at the initial screen during the POST.

A Ctr-Alt-Del reboots and this proceeds well.

Can anyone suggest what I can check?
