    Hello guys I am new to this forum. I have a really ig problem. My computer keeps rebooting!! I have replaced my motherboard...my memory, cpu and video card. etc. checks out well on other motherboards. I formatted my hardrive, reloaded windows (painstakingly cause it keeps rebooting then too), tried a HD someone wasn't using..still keeps rebooting...Even though I've finally loaded XP...still reboots..randomly..getting error messages about it may be my hardware, IP or something else..can't recall at this pt in time...checked my boot log...which says some drivers haven't been loading..specifically...Did not load driver Processor.Did not load driver Audio Codecs..and some more of those..and at the end there's Did not load driver AFD.SYS..a lot of times.. I Need HELP this is driving me up a wall.

    My guess is the power supply is faulty. Sounds like you have eliminated anything else. Do you have a spare you can try?

    Let us know

    Post the error message the next time you get the reboot, could help us figure this out.

    Check the temps in the bios setup for the cpu. Also, restart in safe mode and see if it still reboots from there.

    I will have to check out what AcaCandy and Dai said when I get home...but one more thing...I got a Blue Screen of Death saying Driver IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL..THEN SOME CODE 0X0000000D1..and some more code..just in case this may be useful...
    I'm thinking it may not be a OS problem as the machine kept rebooting even while i was trying to install the OS.

    If your motherboard supports it, boost the vdimm voltage up a notch, if you still get errors during the first 24 hours, try loosening the memory settings, if you still get errors try setting the memory ratio down to a slower speed.

    The errors experienced installing the OS and drivers may be caused by read errors from bad memory, which is my best guess of what's happening. If you leave the machine like this, sooner or later the bad memory will corrupt the registry hive of the OS.
