I'll boot it with an old Knoppix CD for some days. I'll try 5.something to be 
sure to use an older kernel. If I boot with 6.7 it might still be a kernel 
problem.
I reckon if it should be the power supply I ought to get more problems and 
varying ones - no? But oddly enough electrolytics might be on the brinck of 
failure - that's true.

Thx again
