my PC wont restart by iteslf
Posted on 2004-08-10
i just bought a new motherboard aswell as a new CPU, it all runs fine except when it comes to restarting.
what happens is when i go to restart windows XP it goes through the saving and shutting down but then it goes a blank black screen without restarting. it restarts manually by pressing the reset switch but wont restart by itself, this also happened when installing XP, when installing xp and it asks to restart some times during its install it didnt restart by itself.
could it be a BIOS problem?
