The blown caps theory is sound. Would have to inspect mobo's and kvm to be sure. My bet would be on the KVM.
I kept having KVM's go bad as well, so when I rebuilt my server this last time (and added two more for ESXi), I went for full on server boards with built in IP KVM features and ditched the physical KVM. I will say that trying to get the IP KVM's to work under Linux is sometimes "amusing", but I finally got it going.

yeah i know what bad caps look like. did you mean on the server mobo or the kvm board?
btw i unplugged all the servers & the power to the kvm, replugged, & its working. for now. so is that sign its the server or the kvm ... or both!
