Question about ASUS P5P800 SE Motherboard
I have an old compaq with 1.1 celeron, not sure what the board is. It started restarting every once in a while, then one day decided to resart continuosly. I reformatted, didn't help. Changed the HD, same thing. Seems like it shifts gears when its time to load windows. No problem formatting and loading all drivers etc... but won't install windows, just keeps restarting.
There could be several issues, but random restarts can be difficult to debug. For now, I'd start with the easiest and that is a memory check.
Visit www.memtest86.com and download the free bootable floppy or CD (burn the ISO file with free ImgBurn utility if you have no ISO burning application).
Boot the problem system with the floppy or CD and the memory test should start automatically. Let it run over night and see if errors are reported.
