    Have you tried to start in safe mode? Hit the F8 key after the post / memory check. It will bring up a menu; choose safe mode. Does it restart in safe mode? If it does, you most likely have a hardware problem. If it runs in safe mode, then you have a software / tsr / driver issue.

    Have you installed anything lately either hardware, software, or windows update service pack?
