Changed Mb, on an amd 3500. It's a foxconn socket 939. Installed the components (didn't change anything). 1gb ram, 40gb hd 6800gt vid card. Windows kept rebooting, so formatted HD, and did a clean install of windows. It still does it. My grandson's puter, he plays on it for an hour or so, and it just reboots randomly.
any suggestions?

Hi bklyn1028
Couple of things we'll need to know
Go into the Bios and look for a PC health page, post the voltages 12v, 5v, 3.3v and the temps CPU and Chipset reported.
Also motherboard brand and model, Video card brand and model, Power Supply brand and model will be very useful.

Make sure to blow out all fans with compressed air, especially the Processor fan and Heat sync. Make sure processor fan continues to spin when running. Leave the side panel off and put on an external fan.
