    My IBM intellistion E pro keeps rebooting. When it first started I
    thought it was some sort if virus, so I did a clean install of windows
    XP (just to make sure). I erased the hard disk, partition it ect, ect.
    But when installing XP it reboots during the installation process and
    starts all over again with the installation. I tried it several times,
    but without any luck. I have done some tests. I changed from one to
    another hard disk, changend the power cable, even tried to install
    Linux to see if the XP installation CD was corrupted. But it also
    reboots with the Linux set up What puzzles me is that the diagnostic CD
    from IBM with the utillities to check everything works fine. No
    problems found either. I can do all the test on the computer and it
    doesn't reboot. I can also go into the bios without any problem. It
    seems that my pc only reboots when I start with the (system)
    software... Anyone experienced the same problem? suggestions?

    Sounds like you may have a memory problem. Download memtest86
    and check. Or if you have more that one stick try the machine with
    each one in succession.
