Default Video or IRQ Issues

Hi all,

I am having an issue with my sisters computer and have been unable to work out the issue.

She mentioned when she switched it on one day it just goes to boot into windows and it will reset itself just before it goes to the windows loading screen.

If I put in the windows install disc and click through to the F8 repair it will go to go find the windows installs and then give me a IRQ less or equal screen. It will also not boot into safe mode.

So I believe it maybe either a IRQ conflict or a video issue.

I have run ramtest with no errors so I counted that out. I have also pulled the video card out and ran just the onboard video (which might be the problem causing it). I have also removed all of the PCI cards in the machine.

I have included a picture of the screen below. Many thanks!
