Thanks Neil. I use standard x86_64 Intel CPU system with 2.0GB DDRII
RAM on a Gigabyte GA-8VM800PMD-775-RH motherboard.

This happens on both Ubuntu and Fedora kernels. And in fact, any kernel
3.1 or above. It's not only very odd, but also very annoying.

I get to the boot screen and when I select ENTER to boot into the
system, my screen goes black and then the system reboots. It's
definitely a kernel issue as anything (as mentioned already) with
kernel 3.0 or below works just fine.


Regards

Chris Jones
