i dont think its the cpu, sounds more like a software issue, but you need to provide more details about it, have you recently upgraded/added hardware or software/drivers, etc....could be a memory issue or a psu issue....what kind of psu do you have, what wattage?

a month ago i changed from intel 850gb with 256 mb rimm ram and p4 1.3 willematte and ati radeon 9000pro to abit is7-e p4 2.6 northwood 512 mb pc3200 ddr and xfx geforce fx 5900 i didnt perform clean installation of win xp i just repaired the installation. but i really think is my psu 300w 2yrs old and i was running my p2.6 on 3.3 ghz 260fsb... 1.75 vcore ddr on 2.7v agp on 2.6v and i have dvd rom burner and hard drive hooked up. i'll try my bro's psu...
Most probably the PSU will cause you problems but before checking that, a clean installation is a must when installing a new mobo. Your problem will probably be solved if you only format the HDD and re-install Windows. After that, if you have any stability issues while gaming for example, then most probably the cause of your problems will be the PSU.
man u guys realy helped man i was worried that i killed it lol. i was running it on 3.53 but with 5:4 cpu/memory ghz 1.75vcore with vantec aeroflow :-D. and it didnt freeze or anything i clocked on 3.3ghz and i ran 3d mark 03 than i rebooted and than it started rebooting in startup...
