Grey screen !! Quick video!!

Hi guys, I've been working on this problem
For three days now to no avail. I bought a new graphics card thinking my old ati radeon 4670 was the problem ( now have geforce GTs 450) and then bought a new 2tb Seagate drive thinking I would just try a new install of windows 7 In case it was a driver/virus etc. issue( didn't want to lose my old partition in case it wasn't ) So now I'm here searching for possible solutions and haven't found any yet.

It's only on normal startup, safe mode doesn't give me any problems so I'm at a loss here, I think it may be either a psu or maybe bad memory. I ran a windows memory check and it had no problems any ideas would be fantastic!!

Here's a video I just took of startup so you can see what happens, it is hooked up to a 42inch tv via a dvi cable.

just an idea but have you re-installed the video driver. if it works in safe mode using the on-board vga it has to be driver (or card ) related.

Can your TV run the HDMI that the PC is Kicking out,

have you tried too run it on a Monitor.

Maybe the res is wrong or even the frequency.

Yeah I tried that, I'll try a third time now but this happened before on the old card out of nowhere, I had the old card about a year and a half with no problems my computer does stay on for about 95% of the year.

The reason I got anew card is for the same reason that's happening now. Note is a complete new install with the appropriate drivers from the disc. Then an update with the new drivers and still no luck.

If you have no problems in safe mode, then is is something running at startup. You seem to have a gezillion programs running at startup anyhow because your boot takes forever.

I suggest you run Soluto and weed that stuff out: Soluto

Also thinking it could be a power issue I pulled 3 drives out of the computer, now only running one 2 tb drive

Try to set your video settings to "AUTO" When you get a signal then, you can go back to your favorite resolution.

For test purposes I installed fresh copy of windows on a brand new drive, there are zero programs installed aside from the logitech wireless kand m drivers and the video card drivers

Do you mean that its working,

If so. Might not be the Power supply. Have a look on the Motherboard and see if there are any capacitors that are Bulging from the top ie: BLOWN.
