Compaq Proliant ML350 G3...power problem???

The server is ~3 years old. HP sent out a tech and he replaced the system board, backplane power module, and power pack. Server stayed up for 4 days and then crashed as if power plug was pulled. Next tech came out, replaced same parts, plus NIC, SCSI card, and all 4 memory cards. He also removed the tape drive and disconnected the CD and floppy to rule them out. The server ran for 4 hours. Nothing in the event viewer showed problems with hardware. I'm guessing it's either one or both fans or the power switch in front.
ANY IDEAS??? I need help ASAP. Thanks.

Are you seeing anything in the system management home page? Look in the Integrated Management Log, there should be errors there.

run server in minimum configuration,
remove PCIs, just one memory at a time, just 1 proc in case you have 2

The power switch and 2 fans were replaced, but not before they caused problems with the system board...which was replaced again. I now have an almost new system. Thanks for the input!!
