Re: picture messed up
Try removing the video card & clean the copper contacts with a couple drops of house hold alcohol on a cotton swab. Use canned air to blow out the AGP slot. Blow out the video card's fan as well. Re-insert the video card & make sure it is firmly seated in the AGP slot. If you're still having the same trouble when you start up, try another AGP 8x card. You're 6800 may be going bad. My bet is the video card is dusty & not seated 100%. If you are thinking it might be the power supply, don't! When that goes, nothing will work. System restarts by its self can mean the CPU fan is dirty with lots of dust. You can blow this out as well. If it looks real dusty use a clean paint brush to help clean the fan. Don't be too rough with the brush. You don't want to break a fan blade.

Hi Jimmy, Does the PC load windows fully before restarting? If it does load and then restart,then it may be a problem on the part of your hard drive. Run a full scan of the PC with an updated anti-virus to rid off any viral attacks.Make sure the anti-virus is always updated for better performance. If it does not load windows,try this:-
Restart the PC.
Before it loads the first page,press Ctrl,Alt and Del.This is a soft boot sequence.
The booting leads you to the Bios setup page.
Under file save changes and exit[though no changes made].
If problem not solved repeat the procedure again.
If the problem persists,you may have to reinstall the operating system again.

This issue may occur if the signal from the video adapter
exceeds the scan range of the monitor. The video adapter setting for updating
the screen (the refresh rate) is incompatible with the monitor. you should reinstall your video drivers in safe mode.
To restart in safe mode repeatedly press the F8 key during the computer startup. This will bring a menu where you'll be able to choose safe mode.
