    Ok I posted a couple of weeks ago about my system rebooting and I think I am ready to throw it in the incinerator. I was having a problem with it constantly rebooting so I replaced in this order

    hard drive
    video card
    power supply

    the only thing left is the main board. Well when I start it it reboots at the windows xp splash screen like 3 time then it finally gets into windows once into windows it reboots after about 5 min, then it reboots like once every 45 min to hour after that. But I found that if I load a game (its been diablo II) It wont reboot at all it will sit there for hours apon hours and not reboot but as soon as I leave the game about 15 min later there it goes again. Now I am ofically stumpped. anyone have any ideas?

    PIII 650
    Micro Star ms-6199 board
    g force 4 mx4000
    512 RAM
    latest BIOS
    windows XP

    well thank you again

    try updating your virus definitions and doing a full virus scan in safe mode (switch off system restore first) and then update and run Adaware SE and Spybot Search & destroy. I had a similar problem once that turned out to be a worm infection.
