win2000 won't boot past blue screen.

By five4all ·
I just replaced a amd 1.13 w/ an xp 1800. The pc seemed to be working fine until I started getting kicked out of my first person shooter game. Now it has rebooted on its own and will not boot up past a blue screen that flickers for a split second and then it reboots all over again just to do the same thing over. I have tried a safe mode boot and the same thing happens blue screen and all. I want to think it is my mobo failing. Any help is appreciated.

Make sure the CPU cooling fan is appropiate for the 1.8Ghz processor.
In the BIOS settings, in the power management section, try the ACPI setting. I have found that using ACPI solved all my constantly re-booting on win2k machines

To pretty much eliminate the mobo as problem, try switching back to the CPU that worked.
Check the docs that came with the board to see if it is compatible. If you don't have the book, go to the mobo site to check.
