    ASUS P5PE-VM restarts itself

    Hi ,

    I too have a similar problem.

    I have an home built PC with the ASUS-P5PE -vm motherboard.
    And recently it started "Rebooting " itself.

    This happens at different scenarios.
    Sometime it restarts while its displaying the hardware info during pc-startup
    Sometime it happens when it starts windows XP and stays there like 5 mins and then restarts.
    Dont see any pattern.


    Motherboard - ASUS-P5PE -VM
    2 SATA HDD
    1 CD Drive
    1 Firewire card
    512 MB Kinston ram
    PS2 Mouse
    USB Keyboard

    There's no other external cards.
    Power supply is max 300W.

    The only weirdness noticed was ASUS Probe complaining about the PowerSupply fan.
    But I noticed the air flowing from that exhaust opening and concluded ASUS probe is wrong.
    Not sure if its the power supply or the motherboard.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
