  1. Boot into the Safe mode (F8).
    Does you computer shutdown while you're in the Safe mode?
  2. hi Gandalf,

    Yep, sometimes even on the boot up screen...

    sometimes it gives you the blue error screen.
  3. Try to enter your BIOS and save it to the default settings.
  4. already done that.... samething.
  5. Since I couldn't find the details of your motherboard online, I don't know if it has an onboard video capability. If there is a video connector off of your motherboard, then recommend you remove your video card and try to boot up.
  6. no.. no a video connector off.

    based on all this: what do you thing the problem might be?
  7. Since you can't run in the Safe mode, I can only go with a hardware problem.
    If you have a second computer, you might want to try swapping components one at a time. I assume you've already made sure that all the cables/wires are going to the right place and are properly connected.
