    Will it boot in safe mode? If it will, try uninstalling and reinstalling the graphics driver.

    You might have bad RAM. Try installing one stick at a time (in the appropriate slot).

    Checksum errors can also mean a bad CMOS battery.

    By the way, try to include some punctuation in your posts. I find it difficult to read and understand.

    Sorry, and the issue now is that it doesnt give cheksum error it pass the bios logo, it goes fine till it reaches the vista logo were it loads up the first few ars before it resets. could it be the cmos battery causing so much trouble or the hard drive?

    It could be the hard drive but I would like to rule out RAM first.
