Default Computer Switch Off Issue HELP!!


I purchased a new motherboard after my old one would only just beep when turned on for some reason not sure why?

Anyway, im unable to install windows as when i do the computer turns off and restarts just as it is about to run through the install process.

I did manage to get it installed but that is only when i have the cpu set to 100mhz instead of 166, once installed windows i set the cpu to 166 and it worked but after about 5 mins turned itself off again now windows wont load up not even on the lowest setttings it simply restarts.

I have replaced the DDR ram and the PSU but has not at all fixed the problem. Im not sure if it is the motherboard or the cpu causing the problem.

Can you anyone please please help.

Thanks in advance.

what's your CPU? maybe it is not meant to run at 166 FSB
