Error Messages:

 Hi there I am running 2 computers with windows 2000 there is only one monitor and a kvm switch allows me to go between them. I mapped the network drives so rarely do i even view the one computer. I did notice it was rebooting just randomly. So I rebooted to check the temps in the bios and found them to be a little hot. So i unplugged and vaccumed it out. Now it will not post or sometimes will only post after say 20mins or so. The fans come on, the motherboard light is on but nothing else. I have tried removing the ram and using a new stick, checked all the connections, removed the cd and floppy, changed the cmos battery and the power cord. It is an intel i810 book pc with everything built on to the motherboard like the video. Any ideas? When it does post after like I said at least 15mins it either reboots while disc checking or while at the windows splash screen and it will reboot if i try to go into safe mode.

Try changing the power supply and boot with only the mobo,cpu and memory connected. Disconnect all the drive and remove any adapter cards.  Then one by one reconnect the devices booting inbetween each one to eliminate the cause. Some causes of spontanious rebooting is either a bad psu/bad memory.
