Hello there, after I replaced my old cpu (Intel Pentium Core 2 Duo E5200) with Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600, my computer refuses to boot into Windows. I allready tried to reinstall operating sistem but everytime I get into the middle of the instalation, my computer will randomly restart. Also the temperatures are normal, It does not overheat. How can I fix it? Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Make and model of the PSU in the build? Age of the PSU in said build? Also, did you make sure that you were on the latest BIOS version for your motherboard prior to dropping in the C2Q Q6600? How do you have a 6GB ram loadout? Try working with one stick as opposed to multiple sticks and see if that changes your experience, though I'm sure your motherboard or your PSU might not be liking what you dropped in.
