Exclamation Problems Starting Up Computer After A Shutdown

Recently, my computer has been having problems starting up after I have shut it down for a few hours or over night. The computer will load the Phoenix AwardBIOS screen and shows the computer quick-self test, then it'll restart and do it over again. Sometimes it won't restart again and it just stays at a black screen. Then I'll have to either turn off the computer from the power button in the front or the switch in the back. It's never done this before just for these past two weeks. I also have no problems restarting, it goes right past the quick power on self-test and continues booting.

Computer Specs:

AMD Athlon Thunderbird 1.2 Ghz
AZZA KT133 motherboard
512 PC-133 SDRAM
GeForce4 MX 420 64mb
Soundblaster Live X-Gamer 5.1
Windows XP Pro with Service Pack1
VIA Hyperion 4-in-1 drivers v4.49
