Well there were alot of DCOM errors, but they only said failed to load in safe mode. There was one error saying that C:\ had bad sectors and needed a chkdsk run. but i have run that utility and it came up ok. i cannot copy and paste the logs due to the fact im bouncing between 2 PCs.
When I spoke to support i was told it was probably a mobo issue, but i don't know if i buy that. It seems to me that if that were the case then it would randomly shut off regardless of whether or not it was in "Safe Mode". Opinions?
EDIT: I took the mobo out of the case and did a very close and detailed inspection, after this i have noted that the lovely taiwanese capacitors have...guess what? blown... thank you for the ideas/help, but i have solved the problem.
