xp Won't restart

  bolmgsr 19:17 15 Nov 2004

When ever I want to restart my pc it logs off etc and screen goes blank but then won't restart up again, base unit just sits there wurring away and nothing happens even when pushing on/off power button. I have to turn off at mains then turn back on again with power button to get it restarted. This does not seem to cause a problem with it starting up ie it does not have to go through checking disc for problems which indicates it has logged off and saved settings but it just won't start up again.
Any help on this would be appreciated.

Try checking startup progs in msconfig as one of those progs running in background may be having trouble uninitialising.
