When i turn on my pc the screen is full of characters mainly 0s, this continues until i get to the xp loading screen which appears fine, however when this is done and it is time for the logon screen to load, the screen turns to a series of horizontal white lines. After a short while my monitor turns off, and then my computer restarts. The same thing happens again, i am however able to work out that i am given the option, the second time around, to start in safe mode, by taking a lucky stab in the dark i was able to select from the safe mode list the correct option to start i n safe mode, which loads completely fine. I first thought that i had a virus, however i use sophos and this did not find anything, so i tried starting up with out any hard drives connected, this did not make any difference. So i think its a hardware problem any suggestions.
I do i use a gforce 6800, i have taken the graphics card out many times, i was think it maybe the graphics card, but cant test without buying a new one as unfortunatly my Motherbord does not have an onbord one.
