before your system startup started recycling have you made any changes to the OS or have downloaded any files or installed any 3rd party software?

do you receive any error messages while starting to run in safe mode?

during startup do you hear any beeps? long short, what bios do you have?

Ok when it loads the partion or whatever it stops after loading the driver amdagpxp.sys and just freezes there not going any further...As far as third party software and all that stuff goes.....Only thing i can think of would be warcraft and I dont think thatd cause any problems....but also it used to give me an hmonitor.exe error at startup but I dont think that is it either being that it is the monitor..If you could tell me where i could find what BIOS it is I would greatly appreciate it and thanks for replying...

that hmonitor is a hardwear monitor ( i think) i searched for amdagpxp.sys and all suggestions that i could find suggest that ints the amd graphix card driver....most of them suggest updating your graphix driver, chipset driver, and bios....i haven't found any reference to a resolution.
