My computer won't restart at all, I just formatted and tossed on windows xp. The computer will run perfectly until I restart it. If I try to restart from windows it will show it shutting down but never kicks off the computer all the drives stay lit up and the monitor just goes blank, I have to restart manually and i have to let it wait 5 minutes or so before it will fire up properly again. It won't just restart, just sits at a blank monitor screen unless I wait a few minutes. Any suggestions?

There are a few cables not attached with various labels, such as VP, VG, TPA & TPB -+ , as well MIC BIAS, AUD GND, FPOUT -l/-r, RET -l/-r, unsure of where they go as well or if they could cause the issue at hand.

I don't think the unattached cables have anything to do with the problem.

Try starting Task Manager, click on the Process tab then do a Restart. Watch the processes. If it doesn't restart then start killing them one at a time until the restart happens then you will know which one is causing the problem.
