recently installed has just started to reboot for no reason (although there must be) seems to have a power drop,lights flicker and a click noise heard then system reboots. sometimes runs for days then starts to play up have installed xp several times due to blue screen of death seems easier to do this then it runs ok. does anybody know what the cpu frequency etc for this mobo are and has anybody had this occur before.
thanks for any help offered

Hi, sounds to me as if your psu is dying. A similar thing happened to my pc recently, changed psu, no more problem.

will try a new one tomorrow had a feeling you would say that as the psu was used from a previous machine that had a simular problem eventually the mobo died.

Ok, good luck, psu is not too expensive these days, but get the 'biggest' wattage you can afford.

will let you know tomorrow

Yes, agree with Technotiger. PSU dosn't sound to healthy.

" does anybody know what the cpu frequency etc for this mobo are"

socket 478 pentium4 and celeron. Takes 400, 533 and 800 Mhz cpu's.

thanks dan11
have already checked this out what i mean is what do i set the setting to for the cpu i have got you know where it says cpu speed (2667) cpu multi (greyed out on 20x) cpu external frequency etc.... could this be the problem some of these setting maybe wrong
ps am going out now need a drink after all this will be back l8r

If you have cpu speed at 2.667Ghz in advance menu in the bios. then this is correct.

It is set to auto detect, so you can not change the multiplier.

There is no need to change this, as this is the right speed. If you want access to the multiplier, you change the cpu speed to manual. This gives access to the fsb/pci clock speed and the multiplier.

Had a similar problem with a friends build, turned out to be a faulty stick of RAM.

Still signs say PSU to me, could be the reason your old mobo died.

Good luck.

touch wood everthing seems fine
bought a sweex 650watt psu. when i took out old one it was only 300 watt the original machine had only a cd rom and a 40gb hard drive in it. i updated the machine and now it has 2 hd 2 cd roms plus lots of fancy lights i guess the fancy lights was the final straw 300 watts not enough.
thanks for all you replys
