Default Random Reboots


My system has become really unstable. It reboots randomly and sometimes will continue rebooting with about a 2 second gap!
It might reboot when I'm doing something or it might just reboot and when it's posting reboot again.
Sometimes, when it reboots it just sits there turning itself on and off with nothing on the screen.
I am thinking it is the CPU, MB, PSU or (!) the hard disk (is this possible? when the computer doesn't powerup properly I think the hard disk doesn't seem to powerup the way it should). I don't think it's the memory as I have two sticks of RAM and this happens when I have either one in. (I have used memtest and no problems were detected).
Any help?

My system is:
1700+ XP with a zalman 7000 alcu (current temp read by MBM is 38C)
Asus a7v8x (bios 1013 revision)
512 ram (266)
current power rails:
CPU Core 0:1.78 V
CPU Core 1:1.76 V
3.3 line: 3.25 V
5v line: 4.97 V
12v line: 12.10 V
My current uptime is nearly 4h. It's quite weird!

Thank you very much for your time,
