whenever I boot up, the machine continuously reboots on its own.. i tried pressing f8 and different options (safe mode, last known configuration, and all other possible options available) but it produces the same result.?!

// I'm running Windows XP & I have recently installed a new video card~

go here and grab Everest home edition. it will list your hardware and specs.
you may need to open up the case and look at the label for power supply info. doby is looking for the amp rating on the 12v, 3.3v, and 5v rails. also the make, model, and total power rating.

also, did it ever work right with the new video card, or has it been rebooting like this since you installed that?
if it worked for a while with the new card, were there any other changes you made to the system?
