One russian forum insider claims that
- a few hours before crash landing another Tu204 diverted to ULLI due to false localiser and glideslope capture when they found themselves on DH too far from the RW .The weather was much better at that time.
Also there are rumors that the autopilot was uncapable during the flight.
Fuel was enough and engines produced thrust untill the impact

Finally some official info:

The airplane had at least 9 tons of fuel at the time of the crash. It was on an ILS approach to rwy 14R when at 4000m there was a computer malfunction as a result of which the automatic modes and the ILS display were lost. The crew identified the problem but did not inform ATC and continued the approach using the nav aids which were available.
