when i initially turn on the computer, it restarts itself over and over again for about 5 mins, and then finally boots up. whilst its restarting, it scans both cd drives repeatedly. and then as i say, sorts itself out. any ideas?

cheers

Can you post your computers specs from running everest http://www.lavalys.com/ and are there any error codes or any other symptoms? What is the wattage on your power supply too?

PS: This needs a bump what a pain in the [bleep] problem.

Try going to avast.org, a free and very effective virus scan, and running a boot scan.
