Shuttle AV49N

drivers can be found over at VIA's site.

find out where the instability comes from: check the capacitors on the mainboard, check the cpu cooler and fan. use memtest86 to check your ram. and last but not least check your psu. in general Seasonic PSUs are a good choice. make sure they are at least 80+ rated, the wattage depends on the rest of the system like vga card, harddisk(s), etc.
If you email me include [WIMSBIOS] in the subject.
