This happend to me also. The solution was changing some settings in
BIOS setup. If you're using ASUS-SP3G motherboard, ask me for sending
a listing of BIOS-settings which work for me. It took several months in
which I cycled through
SporadicCrash-ChangeBIOS-Reboot-WaitForNextCrash. Now my motherboard
works reliable without any hardware failure for months! [ Knock-wood ]

Another source for the cannot-reboot-problem is bad jumpering: jumper
i486-CPU as SX-type while it's a non SX-type and vice versa.
