This problem has just started tonight and I've not installed any new hardware/software.

2 hard-drives with winxp on each drive and everything works fine until I attempt to restart the system.
I click on restart and windows logs off then the monitor goes into safemode....its as if I've clicked on standby but the computer will not wake up.
Even pressing the re-set switch on the front of the case does not send a signal through to the monitor. The only way to get the computer back up and running is to cut the power and turn the system back on....any ideas?????????
