Hi,

I have a restart problem on my Win XP. When i restart from windows,
the computer stop, restart and i get a black screen with flashing white
cursor on top left, No WInXP Logo. If i shot down the computer and
wait for 1 or 2 minutes then turn it on, it boot perfectly.

No problem at all with a cold start.

Any help?

You have just described the classic example of a, heat related, hardware
problem!

To test for this, remove the side panel of the computer and blow air from a
small fan on the mother board. If the problem goes away, look to see if each
and every fan is spinning under power. Look for a build up of dust around
any fan. Clean the fans. If you still have problems, post again for
additional help.

I have the same problem with PCG-FX240. Will not reboot
after re-start. Was happening when upgraded to XP Pro.
Help is appreciated.

I checked the fan and it is working. Cleaned the air
vents. Added external fan to help cooling. Problem still
persist. I tried restarting when the laptop was still
cool. Problem still there. I removed the speaker cover to
check further, the heatsink is a lttle warm to touch.
Laptop works all day and all night without overheating.
But will not reboot when re-started right away. Still
need help.

want to say i had the same problem using win98SE. Try
updating your video drivers. Make sure you follow nvidia's
instructions for updating them to clean out old drivers.

drive, restart, boot from CDrom drive to install Win XP and the
