Right i just reread your original post, you have a heat problem i think. Even for a pentium 4 that is far to hot, you should never exceed 60 degrees on the cpu. It should idle in the 40s at least. You should reseat the heatsink remebering to clean it and reapply thermalmaterial i would get some arctic silver 5 for the job. If that doesnt work you will need a new HSF and maybe another case fan.
