Default Toshiba 4000CDT again!

My restoration of this Toshiba LT is coming along nicely. However, from cold it takes about 5 to 6 quick shutdowns with the power button to get it to boot correctly. It just hangs at the Toshiba screen and even using escape key to enter bios after pressing F1 doesnt work.

Once normal operation is resumed access to Bios is possible with above technique.
It is running a "new" 30GB hard drive that shows no errors and have reloaded Win 98 SE 3 times with same effect. Bios settings look correct.
It has the original Toshiba 32Mb ram fitted, could it be a memory fault?

Puzzled!
