Unhappy Computer rebooting.....

Last night i turned off my computer regurarly and then this morning I turned it on and it was rebooting like crazy. Everytime I turn it on it restarts once its about to load the desktop. It goes through all the usual stuff then it has the loading screen then it goes black and a couple of secs later it just restarts. Everything was working fine until now. Why is this?

Try safe mode like killians said, if it works update ur video drivers and any other drivers.

Also scan for virus/spyware

It had to be a virus because safe mode doesnt work either. I had to re-instal windows..... damn. .... alot of years of work lost. At least it works now.

Years of work? Then it sounds like it was due for your computer to get messed up
