If i restart my computer, it's as if it actually is rebooting, but it's like the graphics card isnt, because nothing comes up on the moniter. However, if I shut the computer down for about 10-30 seconds, it boots up fine. At first I thought the Gfx card was crapping out, i had a geforce 7600, so I bought a geforce 8800 gts and installed it and it's doing the same thing. Anyone have any suggestions? Much appreciated!

Hi Bulldog83, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Have you looked in the Event viewer to see what errors are showing up at these times. The error are recorded with the date and time that they occur.


Start> right click on My Computer> Manage> Event Viewer.

Be sure that you choose System.

The error will appear in the far left column and will appear as a red dot with a white X inside. Each of the columns has a title at the top of them, the column that you want is the Event column. When you see an error follow it to the right across the page to the event column, there will be a set of numbers in there, this is the error code. If you right click on the error code a drop menu will appear, click on Properties, another page will open which will contain a description of the error.

Please post the error codes and descriptions back in this topic.

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

To test if it's the graphics card drive, try booting into Safe Mode (press F8 just as the Splash Screen shows up) - if it works there, then it's likely that there's some corruption in your video drivers.

Or, you could just uninstall your video drivers and install the latest version available from the nVidia website.

I have downloaded the latest gfx drivers. I dont think the problem is the gfx card or the drivers because, on a cold boot, the mobo beeps and it starts up properly, but on a warm restart, the mobo doesnt beep, and there are no logs during the timeframe of the warm restart, the logs dont start again until i manually shut down the computer, and do a cold start. I tried reloading the mobo drivers from the cd, i think I need to find new or updated mobo drivers, ima try that, let me know if you guys think it could be anything else. On a side note, my computer got hit with some trojan's and downloaders so i went out and bought AVG virus protecter and it keeps finding the trojans and dl'ers but they keep popping up, any ideas? I think ima have to reformat :x

Are you running you scans in Safe Mode?

It looks like this should be moved to the Am I Infected forum, I will contact a moderator about this.
