You may have a problem with your memory...take out all the modules and use only one at a time, place one module in the first slot on the memory bus and power up the system, let the system check the memeory and then let it boot normally. Use the system like you normally do, when you are happy power down the system and remove that healthy memory module and place another one in its place. Do the same, ubtil you find the faulting module.
If the modules all respond ok to your tests place all the modules into the system like it was at first, and go to www.memtest86.com and download the memory testing utility.You will have to create the utility with a small batch file supplied, its straight forward...
Use nero burning rom to burn the image to a Cd-r. (Go to file>Burn Image>and select the file to burn from the location you set it up in.)
Once you've burned the cd boot from it and use the tester to test the memory. The tester will test the 2 L1 & L2 cache memeories and the main primary memory. It takes a while to do the job.
If the memory is all ok, set default settings in the BIOS and check the processor is seated properly and also all cards within the PCI bus slots are seated correctly and firmly.
If the problem persists remove all cards from the computer except the video/AGP card and try the system then
