Changed Mb, on an amd 3500. It's a foxconn socket 939. Installed the components (didn't change anything). 1gb ram, 40gb hd 6800gt vid card. Windows kept rebooting, so formatted HD, and did a clean install of windows. It still does it. My grandson's puter, he plays on it for an hour or so, and it just reboots randomly.
any suggestions?

NN4KU8...i bought 2 of them, installed them into 2 puters (both existing mb's went south at the same time, go figure) and one is fine, so i dont think it's the motherboard

Since it is a new mo0therboard you had to install the CPU, correct ?
When you installed it did you clean the old thermal compound off of it & the heatsink with a piece of a paper towel & rubbing alcohol & the put a VERY thin coat of heatsink compound on the CPU before you installed the heatsink ?

The random reboot problem sounds like a CPU overheating issue since you didn't mention a BSOD or error message,

Used alcohol, very soft tissue, cleaned cpu and heatsink. was very careful, have done this many times. Strange....No BSOD, no errors....i just might re install windows one more time.....just to make sure it isn't that...i am lost here
