Voltages on the regulators/stabilisers look good. Don't have scope at hand to have some more close look but maybe this rings a bell for someone?

Can you provide some extra information about the kind of board? Assy 
number, which voltages were checked and where...

Crashing and b/w picture suggests a problem with the clock generation or 
the VIC not getting +12V.
