  1. I have a ASUS A8S-X motherboard socket 939.Cpu amd sempron 3000+ 1.80ghz. Windows XP.It locks up when you try to go to another page from your home page on the net.No error message or blue screen just a restart.Will work ok for a few days after I turn the power off then on to the power supply with the computer off.No new software has been installed.

    What's the operating system? XP? What are you doing when the computer locks up? Do you get any error messages or blue screens?

    Ok truth_seeker,
    This may be a video card driver problem.. Or

    "Will work ok for a few days after I turn the power off then on to the power supply with the computer off"... What?

    If I understand what you are trying to say here... a bad or failing power supply
