it could be the sasser Worm, that trojan does that.But on the other hand it could be your Power Supply going too.

I would try another one on it, if it does not resolve the prob. then it must be a trojan or virus. have you run all your spyware programs yet?

I couldnt find any viruses present be it sasser or a whole other variety of them. I ran spywre and virus checks. And I was booting into safe mode to post these messages, im not sure why it would work but it did. Point is now that ive managed to fix the problem, half by screwing around with a program called hijackthis, which allowed it to progress through the login process a bit more but still resulted with a reset.

Then I just got all pisse doff and noticed the, "Load Last known working settings" option ..or something. Anyways thanks for the initial lead! laters
