random reboots

By varun.mayor ·
My desktop PC suffers from random reboots during post.
What happens is that just when the blue desktop screen appears on screen, it will reboot itself to post again and Sometimes can occur in continous sucessions.
I have a abit kt7 raid motherboard, amd duron 800, 128sdram pc133, nvidia riva tnt2 model 64 video adapter, conexant hcf v90 56k speakerphone modem, 15gb maxtor diamondmax hard drive.
I have tried fdisk, format, reinstall software, diagnostic tools like dr watson, scanreg, scandisk, system file checker.
I would be greatful if someone could give me help on this matter.
thank you, varun

Check the power supply to see if it is operating properly,it could be a wattage problem and then you will want to check the CPU fan to make sure that it is functioning properly and not overheating.

Try another power supply preferably 350 watts
check your heat sink mounting against your chip and make sure you have a dielectric paste and not a plastic coating.

This is going to take some troubleshooting, because there are several possibilities.
Is the power management set up properly?
Did you slow down the bus to check the RAM?
Is CAS set to 3 instead of 2?
Have you tried an Antivirus floppy boot?
Didyou check the power supply?
(We have received several new cases with bad power supplies lately.)
This is just a start.

Exact same thing happened to me once. Turned out to be a bad processor.
