The first thing you have to do is go into the bios and change it from "reboot on error". That way a blue screen with error messages will pop up that helps diagnose the problem. Post the info from the blue screen after you do that.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
