Ok to answer your first question I found my info on the following webpage: http://johnbokma.com/mexit/2008/03/03/fixi...q-presario.html
For all purposes this is what my computer looked like inside.
#2 No I don't have a repair manual.
#3 Sorry, but no that isn't what my mobo looks like. It looks almost exactly like the one in the link I provided.
#4 There wasn't anything in the event log and the restarts are completely random. It seems to have slowed down since I repaired the clip and replaced the dielectric grease but then again I haven't been on it as much the last couple of days.
#5 There is no blue screen of death. I did read somewhere how to make the blue screen of death appear by right clicking on my computer and under the advanced tap clicked settings under startup and recovery. Then, I unchecked under system failure "automatically restart" but it still just restarts and no blue screen of death.

#7 I already did that as stated in #5 and in original post.
Thank you and Cryptodan for your interest in helping with this crazy problem. If I sound hateful I'm sorry and don't mean it that way. I'm just trying to keep it simple and to the point (that was a lot of questions
One other thing to add... I noticed today that it was making a funny noise don't know how to describe... it's kind of like a buzzing noise. I just touched the Ethernet cable (because it was the one I reached for first) and it stopped. I didn't try any of the others and when I wiggle them all now it doesn't make the noise even when I wiggle the Ethernet cable. The mobo may be a little loose. I will re check the mobo bolts to make sure they are tight. Thanks again.
