Question about Computers & Internet
I have windows XP OS. I know my computer have problem, but i am not sure what is the problem !! every time when i restart my computer, i get the desktop like new XP just installed. If i save something on desktop, it is automatically deleted after restart.
How do you shut down? With the windows start menu shut down process? Or push the on/off button on the computer? Take a look at this: http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/fix-desktop-icons-layout-not-saved-restart/

SOURCE: computer restart
Have you tried replacing the entire heat sink with a bigger fan. They sell heat sink plus fan but you have to buy one that fits unto the motherboard.
Also, if this processor keeps heating up, the processor itself might get damaged, if it hadn't already. You might want to get the processor itself tested at a computer repair shop or if you have another computer using same type of processor.

Before you did the install did you make sure that you set your CMOS setting to check for a cd disk first before booting straight to the hard drive? When you do an install, you must make sure that the computer knows to look for a bootable disk otherwise it will look for an operating system to boot to first. If this is the problem, after you have installed your operating system you must go back and reset your CMOS settings to look for a hard drive or operating system. Hope this help and if it doesn't let me know for further assistance.

If this is windows xp log in as the local administrator and rename the folder that accounts profile is in (c:\documents and settings\%user%). Log off local admin and log back into the account you were having trouble with. If that fixes it go back into the profile you renamed and copy the old info from desktop etc into the profile it created after you renamed the old one.

Make sure that all of the new ram sticks are completely pushed down. Also confirm that you used the correct Ram for you Motherboard.
I would also make sure that all power connectors from the PSU are tight.
I would also reseat the video card. As well as making sure you have the correct drivers instaled.

Sounds like your running XP Service Pack 2. They had problems with certain machines motherboards from different manufacturers. The solutions if that's your problem, is to update to Service Pack 3.
Then it will stop doing that.
