Hi All,
when did this start happening?

have you installed/ uninstalled anything before this?

have you altered any settings before this happened?

have you removed or replaced anything inside your pc before this happened?

does it restart everytime you shut down?

which operating system are you using..ie XP home?

have you tried doing a 'scandisk'?
