Dear All,

if I do not do something the system keep rebooting. if I force it to boot by pressing F1 the system loads.
when I am turning the power off and then turning it on again, the system loads great in the first time but then if I restart the same problem is again.
I tried 2 diferrent 7950GX2 cards and the same is hapend. when I switch to 7800GTX everything is working great. that why I am contact you.
I also tried to switch the bios battery and I have the same problem.

can't really help you w this...but just to let you know that Windows XP won't recognise 4G of RAM. It utilizes max of 3G RAM. and 4G RAM will slow your comp down...

I agree, it's probabbly a motherboard problem.

he says it only happens with the 7950 GX2. does that need SLI support to work properly? (it does have two GPU's)

The motherboard supports 8GB, but Windows XP only supports 3GB. The more RAM you have, the more cacheing you have. Basically, the computer has to search ALL the RAM you have to find one file. So, in your case, the computer has to go through 4GB of RAM total, even if you are only using a small bit of it.
