Acer power ST PC restarts during XP install

Specs: Win xp, P4 1.7ghz/ ddr266 1gb
I got acer power ST from a friend, the problem is during windows installation (copy DRIVER.CAB) the system restart without any error, i thought may be cpu is overheating then in bios cpu temp is 36c (not overheating) but pc restart at the same point "copying DRIVER.CAB", but this time before restarting i got the error "it can not copy file press ENTER to retry or ESC to skip or F3 to quit" when i press enter for few times the system restart, then i swap dvd drive and psu but it didn't help.
I tried os disc and hdd into another system and both works fine. I don't know whats wrong with this system, please help.

EDIT: i tried to remove board outside of pc case and install necessary components (cpu, hdd, psu, dvd drive, ram) and still the system restart at the same point. Also i try linux puppy seamonkey (live cd) and receive this error "kernel panic not syncing cpu context corrupt". If i install cpu(p4 1.7ghz), ram(ddr 266 512mb), hdd(40gb), psu(+3.3v@15A, +5V@14A, +12V@5A) include ide cables on a similar system(asrock p4i65g) everything works perfect.
