Recently got a Dell XPS 710 Gaming System.

Spec is
2 x 2.66GHz Proc
2 x 790GS Graphics Cards
2 x 320GB HDD

Everything has been working perfectly for the 2 months i have had it.
Shut it down like normal last night

Just went home for lunch and now it won't get past the Black Windows Screen.
The Fan Is constantly wurring away.

I am able to boot up in Safe Mode.
I have done a system restore to both yesterday and the day before.

Any ideas what i can try next ?

Have a look in device manager for a yellow and reinstall.

Thx, I will look when i get home, but if i had yellows, would that not auto ask me to install hardware ?

No, not if there's just a problem with a device. If you find any, remove the device in device manager, then windows new hardware wizard will kick in.
