I've had a machine lying around for awhile now and recently decided to install Fedora on it. It used to run redhat fine, but I haven't used the pc in over a year. Sometimes, the computer just sits at a black screen with no signal being sent to the monitor. Other times, it'll get past the drive detection and then reboot. It'll continue to do that in a loop most often. When I am able to get into the bios, I reset the settings to fail-safe defaults. Sometimes it'll stay on long enough for me to start the Fedora setup process from the cd, but it eventually reboots. I know the power supply is good because it came from another working system.
Gigabyte server board
Athlon MP 1600 and 2600
1.5gb ECC pc2700
WD hdd ata100
sony dvd burner
rage 2c graphics (have also tried rage pro, geforce 3)
I'm pretty positive that all the parts work fine, my concern is that possibly the motherboard has issues. Any ideas?
