Unauthorized Reboot

I've build a Cyrix 6x86 PC a couple of months ago, and suddenly it is beginning to give me some problems.  The main one is that it seems to just reboot itself for no apparent reason.  It is running Windows 95, I am NOT connected to the internet, and it has 40Mb of RAM installed.  I would assume that it is a conflict in hardware as it was built with lots of bits and pieces, but what I don't understand is, that it was fine until recently.  I haven't installed any hardware lately.

Cheers,

Soudls like either a bad SIMM or the infamous Cyrix Overheat problem. Have you any chance to try with another chip?
