    computer restarts byitself

    hello all,

    Im building a computer/changing a motherboard. Im using the same power supply, hd, ram, processor. The old board was an asus p2b or p2-99 (forget which one, but they're pretty similar). The new mobo is a tyan s1854 Trinity.

    The problem is when i start the computer. POST is fine, then right before the win xp and little blue bar goes up, the computer hangs and restarts.

    Any ideas what to check...everything worked fine before...i also tried changing the ram sticks.

    Thx alot

    One word of caution... if you haven't done a fresh install on the HD after installing the new mobo, you could be in for some serious headaches. Keep in mind that your HD has all the information/drivers setup for the old motherboard, and now it can't find that stuff. I'm not sure if that is what is causing your restarts or not, but that would be one of the first places I would look.

    Have you checked all your connections?

    If its windows XP and the new moptherboard is a different model than the previous one then you need to reinstall the OS... that problem occured to me too.. reinstall Win XP .. everything should work fine..
