Overheating problem in your PROCESSOR!
Check the temp in your BiOS and the setting of your processor!
Check also the power supply and upgrade it to hifgher wattage!
Clean your processor HEAT SiNK, dust and dirt might have acumulated!
Check the HEAT sink position, if its flatly fitted on top of procie, and scrape the old silicon paste between ur proci and heat sink and put a NEW ONE!
Encountered this kind of prob.. the prob is in the PSU unit(Power Supply Unit)!
The only thing that would cause a restart in the BIOS is a hardware fault - most likely the power source is too weak. But you should also check the temperature of the processor from the the BIOS besides the voltages.
1. Make sure you have all the discs included in your package.
2. After you power-up, strike del key to go to bios/system.
3. In boot selection, select DVD/CD ROM to boot first, HDD second and other if you wish..
4. Press ctrl+alt+delete to restart.
5. After pressing the tree (3), insert your CD/DVD installer to the drive..
6. Follow the instruction...
What are you changing? The motherboard or one of the peripherals such as memory or video card or drive controller may not like the setting or may be incompatible with certain options causing the problem. You may also want to see if there is a bios update to address the issue.
Try taking out the mobo and ps out of its casing, lay it on a table, hook things together and power it up. I had some problems before caused by mounting studs or try insulating all stubs from the mobo. hope this will help.
