    Check the power supply rating. It should be not less than 300w. I had
    similar problems and tracked it down to the 230w power suppy. Threw it out
    and replaced it with a 300w unit and all is well, I'm now into my 14th day
    uptime!

    (Alan - did you get my e-mails on this subject?)

    Cheers,
