Question about EliteGroup 848P-A Motherboard
It's hard to do much testing, but I'd look for capacitors that are bulged or leaking. badcaps.net has way more information than you'd ever want to know about this problem
Pull everything out and reseat it, see if it works.
After that, I'd pull everything out but the motherboard, one stick of known good memory, and the video card. Also disconnect everything from the back but the keyboard and monitor. Clear CMOS using the correct jumper.
Boot up to the cannot boot prompt and let it sit for a while (15 minutes or so). Do a ctrl-alt-del and see if it reboots correctly.
Next, add in just the cdrom and boot off of it until it fails (win xp setup) Then Ctrl-alt-del and make sure it works a second time.
Now, add your hard drive and try to install. If it works, shut down, add one card at a tie back in, and test each time.
Then start adding in your usb devices, then network cabling, etc etc.
If you can, try a known good power supply.
Either you'll find the part that is causing the problem, or you'll know it's most likely your motherboard.
