Have a dell dimension E520 PC randomly reboots. Tested memory by running each of 4 1gig memory sticks in #1 slot by its self, problem eliminated all 4 times. Tried running Each pair of mem in #1 & #3 slots (the white slots) and problem persists. Also tried each pair in # 2 and 4 slots (the black slots) only but machine wont boot(don't know if that is normal). I assume the Mem sticks are all good since machine works fine with any of the 4 sticks running by its self in slot #1. Seems the problem only persists when the #2 slot is occupied. Can this be caused by bad PSU or is it more likely something else like MoBo issue. Please Help.
Thanks Phil Doe

Could be the board or power supply. I would try another ps first before contacting dell. Even if they had your board, it would be too expensive to order from them. Better to check craigslist or ebay.
