    The Techspot FAQ

    If you could take a minute to fill in some of your profile information that would be helpful to all members of the forum :)
    Knowing someone's location in the world can be extremely helpful, even if you just put a country.

    Also remember to post any problems or questions that you have in the appropriate forums

    With regards to your problem, we will need more information than this if you can give it, but it sounds like something may be wrong with windows or some other software. For example, what windows version are you using, were there any hardware or software changes before this started happening, and does it go on the screen with the loading bar to a black screen and show the POST information (that screen with a list of hard drives, your installed memory and cpu etc) and start over again, or does the loading bar screen finish then it restarts?

    You may as well have said "my pc won't work, what's wrong with it" ;)
