Right Click My Computer, Click Properties.
Click Advanced
Click Settings
Uncheck "Automatically Restart"

This will allow you to see the message that caused the restart.

Sounds like its memory, or the mainboard.

    Have you tried safe mode?

    Sounds like a Software ONLY problem.

    When pressing F8 to get to the safe mode menu, do you have the option to 'disable automatic rebooting on errors' ?

Best motherboard that will fit the case of my Dell 8200 PC. I want more ram and maybe upgrade the processor.

The best MB for that chassis that will fit without any Modification is a Dimension 8400/PWS370 Dell Motherboard. The chassis power button/USB connection is a proprietary Dell connector and using any 3rd party MB will require modification and the wiring is almost impossible to find for that control board.

For just about the same cost (MB, Processor, Heatsink/Fan and RAM) you can buy a New Vostro 220 with a Core 2 Duo processor w/3GB RAM and a 320 GB HDD and it is under warranty

Computer crashes with my RAM sticks both in

First thing i would suspect is a bad ram stick. Here is a link to a free tool you can use to test the ram if you dont have an application for that:

use the "memtest" programs on there.

I know, it works fine with 1 stick, but its a dual channel board so the ram may only fail on 2 sticks, so check it out.

If RAM tests fine, then go for a BIOS update. I have run into some weird things with that chipset in ragards to raid vs mem. Using RAID on that system?

Is your system overclocked? try running it at standard speed. If that fixes it then run at a lower overclock or get better cooling.

If it still doesnt work after all that, see if you cant borrow another processor from someone and try running it with a different processor.

If that is not the problem, try running a fresh load of windows for a couple of days, with nothing but windows loaded. If that fixes it then your problem is software, and will go away with the reload.

If you are STILL having trouble after all that, then its time to try swapping out the motherboard. Hopefully yours is still under warranty. If not, I like Asus boards - as they have a 3 year warranty and are just good boards.
