Default Re: PC Boot/ Reboot issues

Before you reformat make sure it isn't hardware. Otherwise you'll destroy all of your data. Run UBCD and do memory tests. Also, test the power supply; faulty ones will generally cut power just long enough to shut down the pc.

Edit: You can pick up a power supply tester pretty cheap. It will tell you not just if it's good or bad, but what is good or bad... that is if you even care about what's causing the problem since the solution would be to buy a new one anyway.
