I recently upgraded my mobo so i could use my ati radeon 9550 i bought(old mobob did not support 4 or 8x agp)...after a few hours of use it will shut off..i thought maybe it was my ram..i had read some boards dont like 2 sticks of ram that are different brands since it would mainly shutoff when playing unreal tournament 2004..but the only thing that is making think it maybe something else is that when i try to turn it back on it will not boot up past the post screen...but if i let it sit for a while it will boot up fine????...any ideas???

When you switched mobo's did you reinstall windows? this is necessary because of driver issues from the old board so I would backup and do a format and reinstall first if you have not already

List your system specs

normally i do reinstall windows anytime i do an upgrade like this simply because windows will start acting up..but this time it started up perfectly so i left it alone..

Well I still think I would reinstall windows first before geting into needless trouble shooting to see if it takes care of the problem.

Anytime I did not reistall problems such as yours eventually show up.

So try that and if problems persist post back and we can look at some other things.
