    I have a K9N sli platinum board with an Athlon 64 X2 4600+ chip in it
    AM2 socket. i have an eVga 7600 Nvida 256mb card in an pci-e slot and
    2GB DDR2 memory. I'm running and 80GB western Digital and an 250GB
    seagate drive both SATA.

    The system keeps rebooting at random times for no reason. When
    windows restarts, it don't give me the usual windows was not shut down
    properly screen, just goes straight into Windows XP normaly.

    I alreadly tried swapping out both the memory and drives. I even
    tried installing windows onto an ATA drive to see if it might the the
    SATA controller. I don't have another cpu or AM2 socket board kicking
    around to try changing thoes out. I am wondering if this is a
    proeblem with the system board of the cpu.

    If anyone has any info on this problem it would be a great help.

    bios. that didn't work either

    The first thing you need to do is try to determine if you have a
    software/driver conflict or an actual hardware failure. Since you say
    that you have changed the power supply or something along those lines; I
    would run memtest overnight with the default settings and see if errors
    occur. If you get ANY errors with memtest you have a memory problem of
    some type. Since you have 2GB of memory try removing one stick and see
    what happens, I think that your MB supports one memory stick. If the
    memory seems OK. I would open the control panel and go Administration
    tools and look at the event log and this will usually point you in the
    right direction. I assume that you have the latest drivers for video
    card and other system drivers. The event log is not cut and dry but it
    should point you in the right general direction. If you can not find a
    hardware problem I would strongly suspect some type of conflict between
    video driver and some other software because the video driver runs all
    the time.

    Good Luck
