Can't boot with smp

Hi, I'm having some problems with a computer - it restarts automatically when trying to boot.
It only boots successfully if I add the nosmp option to the kernel.
How can I find out what is happening (and fix it)?

CPU is "Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E7300 @ 2.66GHz"
kernel is 2.6.28 (gentoo distro, 2.6.28-gentoo-r5)
I can provide the kernel config if desired.

Please CC me in replies.
