I tried to boot my PC today and everything seemed fine, it POSTs and then the second beep and as its about to boot to Windows, it reboots and POSTs again, I havent had any real problems as of late until just now. Any ideas what this could be?

if the system will post, then you can get into the BIOS. it will be either F10 or Del.

I'll need to know which ram you have exactly.

Can you get into safe mode? If you can right click on My Computer, click on Properties, Advanced, Startup and Recovery, uncheck the Automatically Reboot feature. When the computer starts and has a problem it should stop and provide you with an error message, please post back with the exact error.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I Already tried safe mode =P

I can get into the BIOS screen but I didn't see anything about a BIOS revision.
Would this be listed in the user manual where I can find this info?

If you can get to the Safe Mode Menu, you may have a choice titled:

Disable Restart on System Failure

If you select this option, it should pause your reboot and allow you to copy down the parameters. Try and get ALL of the number combinations displayed. These numbers can help in determining the cause of your problem.

RAM

Also, I can't boot in safe mode, I tried the Disable Reboot on System Failure but that didn't work either. And I still can't find the BISO version number
