I would check for the leaky capacitors..
and then check voltages possibly a bad power supply..
I had a simialr problem that turn out to be a supply..

I've been using Crucial memory on this A7V133 board (2 x 512Mb PC133 CL2
SDRAM - CT64M64S4D7E) for just under a year, then the PC became unstable,
sometimes freezing during BIOS load (PNP locate) or when the OS (WinXP
pro) was running.
A memtest showed the memory had become faulty. I've just received
replacement memory from Crucial (same sort of SDRAM), and this time the PC
would re-boot after 2 minutes of running memtest. I've never seen this
happen before in any PC. It would consistently re-boot around the 2 minute
I've lowered the dram frequency from 133 to 100 and so far it has been
stable - no re-boots or memory errors reported yet, but I'm concerned that
this new memory would cause re-boots whereas the previous sdram didn't
(although it had errors).
Shouldn't I be able to run at 133 without problems? The PC is running nice
and cool with an Athlon XP 1800+
Thanks for any opinions
