Everytime I log on to my computer it stays on for a matter of 60 seconds. The screen than goes black and it reboots again. I have run all virus scans and it seems clear no detection of anything. I also ran Speedfan and the temperature is 33...which I believe its ok.
How can I fix this problem? Please help!
Thanks

Press the power button, keep tapping F8 until you get options, select safe mode, see if it stays on

Sorry maybe I should have been a little more clear.
In safe mode it stays on...it is only in normal mode that it reboots. I have no idea what is causing this. I heard that overheating might be a factor but like I mentioned the fans seem to be within good temperature.
Please help!

If it stays on in safe mode it is more likely to be the video card drivers, if it were temperatures, it would still reboot in any mode
