Replaced Mainboard on Emachine w3653, keeps restarting

\015 Hi. i have an emachines w3653 desktop w/monitor. here's the story:1 of my uncles works graveyard shift at hotel in waikoloa, and i think they replaced some security cameras, cuz he gave me a couple and said something about getting them to work. i tried, and only got motors to work (easy). Camera circutry i tried connecting to USB on computer, and fried the ICH7 S-bridge on ECS 945GCT-M3 M-Board.Took me awhile to get new mainboard, but i installed it, recycling the CPU, PSU and RAM, and now it works, but only thing is , it keeps restarting. i looked online for solution but no dice. i went into BIOS and disabled everything i could, and it still restarts like crasy. i'm guessing it to be power supply, sinse everything else works fine. i am hoping that i can get some help on problem, please. i am not usin it to write this, i bought emachines el1200-07w to use till i get problem fix.Sorry if problem is big like long story, but i would like help, please and mahalo. \015\012\015\012Plus, mostly restarts B4 windows vista kicks in sometimes b4 login.\015\012Again, Mahalo!\015

If it reboots before you make the Windows load screen, chances are it's the power supply. You can go into the BIOS, look at the power setup and with most BIOS's you can watch the DC supplies. If they vary like mad while you're doing this (with the PC effectively in idle), either something is loading down the power supply or it's defective.

\015\012If it gets to the Windows startup screen and starts to load, then reboots, it's probably a defective RAM chip.
Emachines are notorious for the power supply blowing and killing the board. In any case, its good to replace the ps as soon as you pick one up. You should be able to get a decent 430W power supply for around 30 or 40. Dont get another Bestec PS.
