P4C800 system reboots randomly

Has anyone else experienced random reboots with the Asus P4C800 mobo? I have been leaving the computer on 24x7 to burn it in. Approximately once a week I will sit down to it and instead of seeing the XP desktop, I see a character-mode screen with an error message about unable to find a boot disk. The three-finger salute just gives me the same error; I have to power off and power back on to get a reboot. It's as if the system spontaneously decided to reboot while I was away, and somehow lost the IDE chain that includes the hard disk. I can't be sure, since the problem's never occurred while I'm using the machine. This sound familiar to any other Asus mobo users?

I had my computer rebooting(every 5-10 mins) while installing XP on my P4P800 i found out that the memory timming where to agressif. I dont know if it can help, but it worked juste fine by spd...

You can try to use manual and put slower timming might help otherwise I dont know what could be the cause. Good luck
