Exclamation Reboot/Restart Fails....Help

Hi,

I've just bought a new Machine (AM2 Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4600+, Gigabyte GA-M55SLI-S4, 1 x DDR2 2GB Kingston 667MHz, 320GB Seagate 7200rpm 16M SATA).

I installed Windows XP Pro SP2 on it, and it all works fine ... EXCEPT ...
whenever software requires a reboot or I select restart, it shuts down fine, but then doesn't restart ... however the power still stays on - i.e. fans still running, power led still on, nothing on the screen!! ...this also happens if I go into the BIOS - when I exit the BIOS - the machine fails to startup ... and like above the power is still going etc ...

Any Idea's would be most greatful...and I can't pull any more hair out

Cheers
DiTcH

That just sounds like your PC doesn't like to restart. I have this exact same issue with trying to put my PC into sleep mode... I can't figure out what it is either.
