Is this a P4 machine? If so, check your heatsink and make sure you have proper thermal compound applied. Another thing to look for- make sure you have all the screws in near the I/O slots- when a compute is not grounded properly, it will perform just as you described. Check these two, and post back- listen for any beeps....
