Check fuel pressure... should be around 49 psi.

Sometimes yes sometimes no. Think of it like other electronic devices, a TV for example. Sometimes it acts funny for a little bit sometimes it just won't start up any more.
To check for a computer you will need some equipment and technical know how. First step is to see if the drivers in the computer are triggering the coils and fuel injectors. A shorted coil could shut down the drivers. You will also need to know what inputs the computer is receiving or not. A good shop should be able to diagnose it.
