Hi i have a problem of my computer randomly restarting with no graphics output. I have to leave the computer off for 15mins before i can turn it on and get a graphics output. I have taken out my graphics card and started using the graphics built in my motherboard but no luck. I then tried replacing the RAM but no luck. You guys think its a faulty motherboard?

Any help will be great!! Thanks!!

Yeah it kind of sounds like a motherboard/cpu issue to me... try unplugging everything but one stick of memory and use the onboard video.... see if it consistantly boots... Could be another component is dying hard but not quite dead yet.... In fact you may want to check your power supply....

Thanks for the reply. I managed to find some time to think about what could be going wrong, and i too think its the PSU. Im going to have it replaced, and hopefully this will be the problem, unfortunatly i dont have a spare PSU to test with so with what feels right and what others are said im going to with the fact that its most probably the PSU and get it sent away under warrenty. Thanx for the reply and i shall update this thread when i get more info.
