Screenflicker at startup->reboots

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
When i try to boot up my computer or restart it, it always manages to get to the load screen, but before it gets to the welcome/accounts screen, the screen flickers and then reboots.... I'm then greeted by the "safe mode, start with last known working configuration, or start windows normally" prompt.... trying to start it up normally or with the last working config tends to cause it to flicker once more and restart... though i sometimes manage to actually get on....

Anyways, i tried to solve the problem and have come to the conclusion that its something wrong with windows on that particular drive as i tried a 20gig with windows loaded on it and that managed to start up no problems...

Anyone have a general idea of what the problem might be? At first i thought it might be that it was to crammed, but i managed to reduce the used space down to the 75% range (out of 80gigs) and defrag it, yet the problem is still persisting....
I also managed to get it to work with my 20gb that i had loaded xp on, so im guessing its not a problem with any components or my OC...
any help would be greatly appreciated

Before you try anything too drastic, you can always try rolling over to a previous registry. I just did this a couple days ago and it fixed everything!
