It started while I was at work. I ran AVG virus scan and it found nothing. I have logged in as administrator and scanned my disks and found nothing. If I stop at the OS selection screen or the DOS prompt, the machine stays on and does not restart. My system is a dual boot with Win98 and W2K. It does it with either OS - just restarts. I have a PC power and cooling 350ATX turbo-cool power supply Abit BE6-II, PIII 800, 768mb pc133, Maxtor 60gig, WD 18gig, SB live5.1, ATI Radon All in Wonder, TDK velocd, Creative 52x and 2 case fans.
I have tried another power supply. I removed and reseated all cards, CPU, and memory - I tried each memory stick one at a time. I replaced the PIII800 with my old PIII500. It still restarts randomly. Could it be the motherboard?
Please...any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
