ok, i am now getting really distressed, my pc will not start up correctly, when i try to boot up normally i get a very brief glimpse of a blue screen after the boot screen and then it restarts and tries again, it's always the same, however when i try safe mode it will load up normally.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is the problem here, i have tried uninstalling programs, removing and fixing registries and i have even repaired the windows installation but it comes back with the same response, any help will be greatly appreciated.

in reply to your post (thanks by the way)

Windows xp sp2

Amd athlon x64 3500+ 2.2ghz
Leadtek Winfast geforce 7300GT 256mb
Asus m2n-e 2ghz Motherboard

like 2 months old

Sorry for wasting your time however, i uninstalled the nvidia drivers and reinstalled them, now it works fine, so strange how that could happen.
I got the information that this may be the cause after sifting through different posts for an hour.

If something else should go wrong though i will come back :whistling:
