    win2000 rebootin when it wants

    Ok bit of a prob with 2 machines in work

    we're trying to salvage some parts from old machines to get a couple more stations set up but we have 2 which refuse to co-operate.

    Now on both machines have already checked HD's and all cables but to no avail

    issue on PC 1 : did clean format and install of win2000 - machine reboots at random intervals...no pattern to reboot - not a virus infection as is not linked to net and has just had a full format and clean install of operating system.

    I'm thinking power supply but i dont want to start going through hassle of yanking it for testing unless can rule out other easier options first


    Second PC : much the same but we can't even get to finish the win2000 setup - PC formatted fine now it keeps rebooting before the win2000 install can finish.

    Anyone got any ideas? or is it time to start yanking power supplies?

    Bah... Legagy Hardware is always painful! CPU Too Hot? PowerSupply? Motherboard?

    Can you bootable Linux CD on those machine?

    no I havn't as of yet - but am thinking is def hardware as 1 PC is rebooting without even having operating system installed.

    We get part way through installation of win2000 and it just dies - not a prob with installation CD as works on other machines
