Wish I would had seen this earlier, your problem with the rebooting issue is probably due to memory dumps. To prevent the PC from restarting next time you get it booted up, you need to disable to auto reboot feature here:
Right click My Computer, select properties, go to the advanced tab and in at the bottom, under start up and recovery select settings, here you will see a box that is selected under system failure "Automatically Restart" Uncheck that box and click OK. May ask you to reboot.
This will not solve your problem, just rather then automatically rebooting you will now get a BSOD, that blue screen that you spoke of in a earlier post that flashed so quick you could not read it, you will now be able to see the text as to what is causing the BSOD and my suspisions are since your using DDR333 as I am, you may only be able to use two memory slots.
Is your 512 one stick or 2-256Meg sticks? If its two sticks you need to use memory slots 1 and 3 only.
This is also known as the loop error, your 300Watt PSU could also be too small causing the loop error, specially if you got a video card thats pulling some juice.
As for your update on the BIOS, boot to DOS with a 98 boot disk, take disk out and put disk in with the .bin file and the AWDFLASH.exe on it that you downloaded from the link that was posted earlier (Be sure to write down the .bin file name before you boot to DOS you will need it). At the DOS prompt twpe AWDFLASH.exe and the program will start and show a screen to enter the .bin file name, this is why you need to write it down. Type in the file name, it should ask if you want to backup the BIOS and do sugest you do, then it will copy the backup to the floppy and prompt you to overwrite the CMOS with the new version. This process will take about 30-45 seconds then ask you to reboot. Be sure lights have not flickered and it is not storming when you flash the BIOS, if the power goes out during the flash your motherboard is ruined. You can have the BIOS chip replaced but by the time you pay shipping, wait 90 days to get the board back, you might as well buy a new one, not worth the hassle.
