Ok guys, here goes. Last night, I went to turn on the computer, and when it got to the welcome screen, the monitor just went blank...it wouldnt boot. I of course just kept tyring to turn it off and on, and SOMETIMES it would boot up all the way. Of course, after about 5 seconds, it would kick itself off. I thought it might be a virus, and ran my virus stuff. It found a couple, and I deleted them. It still had the problem. I reinstalled windows, and wiped everything off the system. It worked fine after that, until I powered up this morning. It started in on the same stuff again. I got into safe mode, just to check my email, and it worked for that. I rebooted, and its now working in regular mode. I know when I turn it off, its not going to want to reboot...any ideas? Is it my memory? orr????

When was the last time you cleaned out your case? Overheating possibly.

Well, it was done a few months ago I think. Maybe I'll just take the case off, blow it out, and make sure everything is connected ok. Any more ideas?
