I have a similar problem with an older computer ; the CPU is mounted on a Slot to Socket adaptator, and the socketed CPU has a huge perpendicular heatsink, thus it tends to "unpush" itself every time I move the case.
By the way, high-end motherboards usually have a small digital display (or just a bunch of LEDs) for self-diagnostic purposes (I saw that on IBM's servers).

uh, memory stinks…

«minimal amount of very slow fail-safe RAM»
just what cache-mem could do…

Once upon a time, computers could run with only a few kB onboard…
