ME Booting Problem

I have owned a old 333mhz pc that I have not been using for some time now. I recently decided to make this into a server. I moved it into a smaller, newer case I have bought and added some more ram. Now however when I load it up it gets to half way through the screen where it has the Millenium Editions logo and then reboots. Can anyone suggest why this might be happening?

How much ram?

About 64 meg I think. I'll check when I get back home.

Osbourne Complete Reference for ME states hardware requirements as-
Pentium pro, Pentium II or similar CPU running at least 150MHz / At least 32Mb RAM but system will run slowly with less than 64Mb.

Your hardware should therefore be sufficient to cope. You mention a smaller case - are you sure there is sufficient ventilation to prevent CPU overheating?

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?

I had a similar problem but much earlier in the boot sequence. It was a faulty power supply.

I was meaning I added 64 megabytes sorry. Its at about 256 or so now. I'll try a different power supply when I get home.

Safe mode does the same.
