Question about EliteGroup P4M800-M7 Motherboard
Thank you for your question.
In this instance is difficult to give a clear answer as there could be numerous problems to correct. I will list some from my experience that may give you somewhere to start.
1. Type the stop errors you mentioned into "Google" with the word "meaning" and this may give you some explanations what the codes mean.
2, Overheating - Check the fins of the CPU heatsink for dust build up, clean/clear carefully with a soft paint brush or use an air duster.
2. Check the all connections on the motherboard are "seated" properly, with the power off and the power cord removed from the system.
3. Run a "free test" on the Computer at a site such as PC Pit Stop. Follow the link and select the "Overdrive" option, it will lead you to the free test section.
4. Depending on how long the Operating System has been in place, it may be overloaded with "rubbish" from general operations, you may need to consider a "reformat" of the Hard Drive and a clean install of the Operating System.
These are some opening suggestions, good luck with it.
Could you please take a moment to vote, it helps to know that I am on the right track with my answers.

Sometimes this can be caused by an overheating situation. Itunes, RealPlayer, Windows Media player, etc. require a lot of processing power to decompress and decode music files, which can cause the processor or hard drive to get hot.
If your CPU is running at over 60 degrees. You might be at risk of burning it out. Some systems shut down automatically when the temperature reaches an unsafe level. Every few weeks I open my system unit and clean the fins on the heat sink that sits under the CPU. When they collect dust it restricts the airflow and prevents proper cooling. You can use a can of compressed air (look at your local office supply store) or an old toothbrush. I just did that on my system and the CPU temperature dropped by ten degrees!

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive
Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your MOTHERBOARD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error
even something as small as a faulty electrical extension or fan lead can cause you problems
computers need all of the data and electrical current to travel through every working device and to have an end to be able work properly
motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive if its a flat ribbon 40 pin type IDE replace it this will be the first to fail
check all electrical power input and extensions make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd floppy drives need to have current go through make sure these drives are working
also check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit
hope this helps you
