ok, the next thing I would do is play around with the bios a little bit.. did you change anything in it recently? if so i'd revert all settings back to their factory defaults (there should be an option to do so in the bios, if not, there is usually a button on the mother board you can press to force it)

if that doesn't solve your problem, then I would suggust buying a dirt cheap video card (like a geforce4 ti or something) and seeing if that works, that way you can find out if it's your video card, motherboard, or whatever it is.

i tried the bios thing and there was an option that said "load optimized defaults",,,i reset it and still nothing,,,ill have to try a new vid card that i can borrow from my friend and find out if it is that my card that has gone bad


btw im trying to remember exactly how this all started and when i think about it, this all started when i shut down my computer 3 days ago and restarted and it kept restarting like crazy,,,it would show the xp loading screen for like 5 seconds and would just restart,,,so i formatted ( 5 times in 3 days),,,dunno if that would help diagnose this problem, if its a symptom of a hardware problem,,,its gone now but thats what started all of this

thnx for ur help btw
