    Hey all,

    I installed Vista RC2, which took forever, and it fixed the problem of my iMac Blue-Screening on every startup..

    Now however, it restarts! Every time It gets to the desktop, loads the window with details about the computer, and poof, restarts.

    Annoying. I can't use it at the moment at all.

    Any ideas?

    Shot in the dark, try PRAM reset (Apple-Option-P-R on boot)

    i just randomly started having this problem, I have had vista installed for 2 months, and last time I used it it was fine. but now it restarts everytime, did the PRAM reset work??:apple:

    I got it to work one time by turning off my apple bluetooth keyboard while vista loads. but this doesn't always work. I also got it to load one time by doing the launch option the records what driver is being loaded when the system resets, but this also doesn't always work.
    Now it is working fine though. at least it has been since saturday. I finally did a memory test through vista while it was starting up, and haven't had a problem since.:apple:
