Im running an Athlon chip 2400 on a VIA mobo EP-8KHA+. Its been working great for many months.
The computer keeps rebooting itself and I have no ability to get it to even boot to a boot disk or the windows disk.
I did figure out how to get the machine to boot - but the only way is to disable the CPU cache in the BIOS (which of course makes everything incredibly slow).
I figured my chip got fried, so I popped in an older AMD chip (1900 I think) and got the exact same problem.
Im thinking its a mobo issue but cant even get a prompt to run any sort of diagnostic, and I dont have a second mobo to pop in and try out. Thought it might be sasser but again no way for me to tell (and I religiously update and run Norton every day).
When I try to boot to Safe Mode in any mode it seems to hang on the file .../System32/drivers/mup.sys
One more thing I should add: the chip is not overheating unless the temperature sensor built into the mobo is malfunctioning. Its running between 50-60C.
