  1. Hello and thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to assist me with my problem.

    Specs:
    A8N32 SLI Deluxe mobo
    Enermax 400w ATX PSU
    1024mb Corsair Memory
    Jaton 118PCI GeForce2 MX400 32MB
    Win XP Pro SP 2

    The story is about a week ago my computer that has been great for the past year started rebooting when the desktop would begin to load (all desktop icons would show, programs start to appear in system tray, and then it reboots). I adjusted some settings and the problem seemed to go away, only to reappear the next day.

    Now, it happens every single time, in the same way that I described. I tried loading safe mode and it works fine, ran an online virus scan and apparently there were 5 viruses on my computer, unfortunately I can't install or update any AV software while in safe mode. I took turns removing both memory sticks from the system to see if that was the cause, and nothing changed. I tried uninstalling my video card drivers (in safe mode), and nothing changed. Could it be the PSU is dying? If it were wouldn't the computer reboot when using safe mode as well?

    Much appreciation for anyones input...thank you.

    You may still be infected with viruses, spyware and malware. Safe Mode doesn't require much to load... You could have damaged Windows files that aren't loaded in Safe Mode
