1: memtest. At the beginning of terminal boot, right after BIOS but before bzImage and wtshell start to load, you should press Shift. When succeed you'll see command prompt like that:
boot:_
Type memtest
Wait for at least two hours. If it returns an error, restarts or won't respond - it means problems with your hardware.

2. Reset bios settings to default values. Then turn off all unused devices like usb, com, lpt and audio. If it'll work after disconnecting devices - send us log (http://wtware.com/docs/config.html#syslog).
