    this sounds similar to problem i experienced with my K7S5A rev 3

    mobo ran great for 2-3 years then lock ups began, increasing in frequency
    daily until it would require several resets before booting followed by
    lock up. Turned out to be the Capacitor problem, that is the large CANS
    regulating mobo power near/next CPU socket all had domed tops (which means
    the CAP is bad) and the domes were very slight not exploded or leaking or
    oozing anything just a slight bump where it should be *FLAT*

    when i replaced the 10 CAPs all was well

    So look at the large CAPS if any one has a bump/dome on top this could
    contribute to the problem

    also if you just put the machine together (new box/case etc) check for
    grounding/shorts on bottom of the board. When the board first came out lots
    of home builders ran into problems with the small K7S5A grounding lug
    holes and oversized mounting standoffs shorting the nearby components plus
    check for standoffs where there are no grounding holes
