    Default PC crashes then restarts

    I bought a new mother board asrock g41c-vs. since then it crashes then restarts while im playing dota (warcraft3). My pc is also slow in startup even if I disabled all items from startup.

    Here's my pc specs

    videocard: nVidia Geforce 7200 GS 512mb
    soundcard:on board
    cpu: Intel E2140 1.6Ghz
    ram: kingston ddr2 800Mhz 2gb x 1
    powersupply: iMaster 550w dual fan

    please help me fix it.
    I'm suspecting that setting from bios where you can change the voltage of cpu blah blah... is the cause. but if you know some cases like mine please reply. thanks...

    i think it your cpu


    now I have solved my problem.
    if you have the same problem - can not boot when you have been in the bios or can not restart the computer or shut down your computer.

    my solution was changing out the cpu with a celeron 2.80 ghz not exactly what I expected, but it may be it can not use intel pentium dual core cpu.

    parts i tried to put together.
    g41c-vs with Pentium Dual-Core E2200
    80 gb Samsung HD080HJ/P. Serial ATA-300
    3 gb DDR2 PC2-5300 kvr667d2n5
    HKC USP-5580, 580 watt
    dvd-rom 16x ide

    What kind of cpu cooler you have? Instant reboots normally points to cpu overheating thus computer shuts down before cpu fries itself.

    I myself made once the mistake that I forgot to remove the protective film from the heat sink. Also don't apply too much thermal grease. Just put a size of a small bean in the middle of the cpu and press the heatsink on it, that way you won't get air bubbles in the grease.

    standard CPU cooler, but my cpu is only 40 degrees

    I do not think there is a problem with cpu, computer has been open for 10 hours with cpu in.

    but when I go to bios and exit the BIOS will not boot again
    and if I restart the computer it wont boot
