It's a PII 266 (not overclocked) with a 300 watt power supply.
I changd it a couple of months ago. The poweroff occur during the boot
sequence or when the system has booted and is running for a couple of days.
It seems to reboot when it start accessing the harddrive during the ext3
or at least that's the impression that i get. Could a bad sector be causing
random shutdowns? Server is used to share the internet connection.
Stupid question: Is there such a thing as to much power? Maybe my mother
board isn't designed for this?
Anyway, i already some leads i can follow to determine what the problem is.
Thanks Hugh & Nate for your comments.
