Did you check the cable settings and the the jumpers? If all these are ok then try reinstalling the windows... Maybe yuor mother board does not support the comp, but i doubt it....

Asus P4B266 rebooting

Rebooting can be caused by memory problems as well as other mainboard issues. Try removing the memory and make sure the contacts on each memory module are clean. If oxides have built up and the contacts have a brownish look you can gently use a pencil eraser to clean them. Use compressed air to blow out the memory sockets on the system board. Then put the memory back in and restart. If you still experience the rebooting, remove the memory again and try replacing a single module at a time to see if you can isolate a bad one.

If this has been the solution you need, please take a moment to give a good rating. If you still have problems, post a follow-up and I'll try to help further. Thanks for asking here!
