New computer is restarting over and over
Good evening. I just ran into a problem with my computer that's been recently upgraded. I finished the upgrade today by installing motherboard, CPU and Ram. When I finally was ready to push the power button, the machine restarted all the time. It runs for about three to ten seconds before it stops for about four seconds and then on again. And so on
Sometimes it actually stays on, but the BIOS freezes early on. I've been googling around and learned that it could be hardware error or virus/spyware.
1.It's definitely not virus, because the harddrive is recently been formatted to install XP over again.
2.I've been over the connectors, and it's all looking good.
3. I suspect the CPU. Had a bit of fury with the fan.
