    I did a fresh install of XP Pro yesterday, however twice last night and twice today the monitor went black and the computer restarted on its own for no reason... and yes I've installed the nForce2, video and monitor drivers... any idea why this is happening?

    Right click my computer/properties/advanced/startup & recovery/settings. Untick auto restart. Now you will get an error message ( hopefully) that you can post here.

    Ok well update: Taurus had told me to do the same thing you said and I got the error message and I guess the nForce2 and Geforce drivers had some kind of conflict because when I reformatted I installed them both at the same time before restarting =) So I just bit my lip and reformatted again... 20 minute reformat btw... w00t!
