I'm about to buy a new motherboard but thought that I'd check here first.
My PC keeps restarting...Sometimes it will stay on without restarting for hours, at other times, it reboots as soon as windows is loaded.
I have striped all hardware and gone back to the mainboard sound and video card. I have also removed most software yet the problem persist.
I have XP Pro service pack 3. After reinstalling XP, I was left with service pack 1 but had to install service pack 2 as a number of programs requested it.
This restart even happens at the windows log in page if left long enough.
I am certain that the fault is with the motherboard but thought a second opinion would advisable.
Below is my system info.
