Ok, so I was changing the cooler on my hd4850 to the accelero s1. After fitting it I put it in my system and wouldnt boot properly. Itd restart when the windows loading screen comes up. So I figure that the card must be overheating or something and refit. After doing it correctly and refitting the old HSF, theres no difference. I must have borked my card, right? So I use my backup card (2600XT) which is known to be working and I have the exact same problem. Restart at the windows loading screen. Memory passes memtest. Not a lack of power from my PSU either. It posts okay, cpu is at stock. Only keyboard and mouse is connected.

So whats wrong?

Thanks.

Don't think so, try resetting your cmos. I know you got everything at stock, but the symptoms are familiar of a bad oc.

Resetting CMOS didnt work. Ive reinstalled original hsf with fan to no avail and used a different card. So not to do with fan detection.
