I have recently purchased a new base unit from ebay which looked like a real bargain.
Ascrock 4core1333 GLAN main board
4 x 2.4ghz Intel CPU's
ATI Radeon 2400HD Graphics Card
Litescribe dvd writer
320g SATA hdd
2g DDR2 (1 stick)
When it arrived I tried to load Ubuntu on it and it was constantly rebooting during the set up. It wasn't rebooting at a specific point it appeared random. Never the less I gave up with Ubuntu and tried XP Pro.
Again it rebooted but managed to get the full OS on it, while installing the drivers for the sound and video it rebooted twice on each.
Now its working but unusable due to rebooting, there are no warnings, no blue screens it just reboots on its own. I have tried flashing the bios but its still the same. Can someone please help before I launch it through the nearest window.
Do you have any other sticks of ram that you could try? look over the motherboard for loose connection fittings or capacitors too- also, are you tech savvy enough to know your way around the BIOS? if so increase the memory and/or CPU voltage slightly and see if it helps- if you're not sure how to do this, people here can help.
