Hi all!  

 

Weirdest thing I have ever seen.   I shut down my computer, plug up my new monitor and turn on the computer.  It's starts to boot up, get's to where it's about to show the password screen, and it reboots.  There is no blue screen though.  

 

 

Every now and then it runs a self test????  And ask if I have added new hardware.  I assume the monitor is the reason for all of this.

 

 

I tried going back to my old monitor.  NOPE.  same thing with it too.  

 

 

I have never seen anything like it and have no clue on how to proceed.   Help is much appreciated.

I have both.   I use this with dual projectors at times.

 

Both the card and onboard result in the same pattern.

Can you get into Safe Mode by pressing F8 when the machine is booting?

 

If you can, shut down and restart after it goes into Safe Mode successfully.  If the problem stops great, if not boot back into Safe Mode and delete the Display Adapters from Device Manager and restart.  The Display Adapters should reinstall on reboot.  If they come up as Standard VGA get the latest drivers and install.

I can not get into safe mode.  Can not get on last known good configuration etc....

 

I disable the auto restart on failure and saw the blue screen.  BCCODE 50

Try reseating your memory. And run memtest86+. Remove the card and just use the onboard for now.
