Hi...
I haven't seen this problem posted anywhere so I figured I'd post. I'm running an IBM NetVista 6831 P3 933 with all OEM hardware, no overclocking, all factory presets. Here's the problem. The machine begins to boot, gets to where it loads the Windows Logo screen, then reboots. I've tried...
1. Changing RAM modules
2. Changing harddrives and OS
3. Changing cables
4. Reflashing the BIOS
5. Starting the box from several different media
No good,,,
I even thought it might have been power supply related, but the thing will run all day in DOS...the CPU doesn't seem excessively hot and the CPU fan is active. I ran DOS antivirus and it showed no CMOS problems, not that I believe that. I know there are very few viruses that actually get to the MB level, so I don't think it's that...does anyone have a suggestion? I don't want to stick a new CPU in it if it's a MB corruption, nor the other way around...any advice wouold be VERY helpful...thanks

Check your motherboard for leaky or faulty capacitors- this is apparently a common problem which IBM is trying to hush up- let me know if you get anywhere with them. If you search the web for "ibm's secret recall"(which is a misnomer-they haven't recalled anything secret or known) you will find some info; and if you search for "ibm's capacitors are dodgy too" you will find some more. my email is justpuffd1@yahoo.ca and thanks for any info you find...Lon
p.s. i'm having the same prob ibm netvista x40 all-in-one.

I've already done that and tried both W98 and XP. Reformatted the drive each time. She's a no workink.
