Windows XP Home
Intel Pentium 4 2.80Ghz
80GB Maxtor Diamaond Max Plus9 hard drive
512MB RAM PC2700U
BIOS Version A05
The computer would turn on and start to boot and then cut off. I unplugged every thing except the hard drive. It still does the same thing. I hooked a new power supply and new hard drive up to the computer and started a fresh install of XP. It almost finishes the format of the hard drive and reboots to the Windows XP Home logo. It will constantly stay on that screen. One of two things will happen next. It will either BSOD or it will reboot. It has given me a thermal event alert after some reboots and other times nothing just right back to the Windows logo. I'm about to run a memory test that was suggested on some other posts. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Moved from XP to Internal Hardware.
