Hi, I am new here.
I have a problem:
i recently installed Windows XP pro 32 SP3
for some months it worked perfectly fine but 1-2 months ago,a problem started.
my computer resets randomly at any time. (no particular pattern)
first it was happening at a low rate. But now it has become unbearable.
So i opened my case.
I don't have any graphics card just internal 128 mb of video memery.
I opened the case and tried EVERYTHING.
I cleaned all the things inside it.

Some times the fans start working and all goes as it is starting normally.
But i can't see anything on tha monitor.

YESTERDAY, I found that the computer only starts when i place the CPU in a horizontal state as soon as i place it vertically,it again starts reseting.....
in vertical position the cpu starts only for 4-5 seconds then it switches off.
and i can't even see anything flashing in the monitor.(It starts 1 out of 50 times in vertical state.)

But it starts every time in the horizontal state.
Please help me.
I am new here, so sorry for my mistakes and errors.

My system information is in h.rar.
Thank you.

PSU = Power supply unit, you can find the make/model on the unit itself.
Mobo is short for motherboard

You're welcome and hopefully you purchased a good quality PSU with sufficient power.
The PSU would be the first suspect for damaging you GPU chip.
