I have a P21G (V3.1) motherboard and lately it has started to freeze up in the middle of a program. Once it freezes ,i turn it off or reset it , the board wont start up. Only a couple of minutes later it starts up agian. Could it be an overheating problem? how do i solve it? There is nothing wrong with the cpu fan as far as i know and the heatsink mounts perfectly onto the cpu.

Try cleaning the contact point of the memory modules "with a pencil eraser" and insert them back... Clean also the Processor heat sink if dusty... Then check the voltage of the CMOS (3V) battery it maybe dead, if so you need to replace that with the same type. Keep me posted if still does not work...
did your system to press F1 to continue. not try to go on BIOS setup. on booting process press F2 or Delete tab. and then click on safe mode if the booting will continue to run. come up a confirmation if you continue in safe mode click yes. and then work on that system for a couple of minutes, and then restart you pc.
you have too many start up programs. that why it will freeze during start up.
If it works in safe mode but not in normal mode, then it is probably a driver issue. I know that you've said that you've updated all of the drivers, but that really is the most common problem. (corruption in the file system.)
that said, click on >start>run and type in "msconfig" (without quotes)
Choose "diagnostic startup", restart your computer and see if it still freezes.
If it does, then it's probably your windows file system that's corrupted.
If it doesn't freeze, go back in to msconfig and turn on things one by one, restart in between, and keep going until you find out what is freezing it.
It may take a while, but that is the SAFEST way I know.
