    Will,

    I already addressed your HD question in your other Thread.

    When you boot up does the Processor get reported correctly?

    How had you modified the settings in the BIOS...OC'ed?

    Are your date/clock settings staying accurate? Sounds like the CMOS battery gave out and you are not holding the settings? :confused:

    no the only thing overclocked is the graphics card and it aint overheating becouse i have a temperature censor on the fan and it is operating between 29 and 33 celsius and the system temp is about 30 celsius and processor temp is about 50 celsius and 60 to 70 on games witch is about right and shut down temp is about 90 celsius

    Will,

    I'm tempted to say, "Ah HA"! Why do you think that I asked, "ANYTHING OC'ed?

    For futures, you can't hold back info like that and expect to get meaningful responses. :rolleyes:

    When I first read your Post I thought that the Video Card may be the problem, since you said, "and then i got to turn my computer on and off about 4 times untill the monitor comes on"!

    Sure sounds like a cool down period to me! :cool:

    I would un-OC the card and see how the system reacts.

    If you want to stick with, "the only thing overclocked is the graphics card and it aint overheating becouse i have a temperature censor on the fan and it is operating between 29 and 33 celsius"

    That's your choice, but I'm betting on the Video Card. There are more components on the card than just the GPM!!!
