Does it do this in safe mode? If so it could be a hardware fault, if not try updating the video drivers. Unplug any peripherals and see if it still does it. Also, run it with the cover off and check to see if all the fans are working and nothing's making a weird noise. What is listed as the source for this event, as this id is a user evironment thing. Check your antivirus is up to date and working. Check for spy/malware.

Just had a quick check on Event 1085 and it applies to a range of problems, none of which really match your description. Can you give full details of the event? Or you can check it yourself by going to

Good luck

Does it reboot over and over and never starts up? Or does it get running then at some point it suddenly has the problem? Is this a fresh install or a previously working system?

More information is needed here. What type of system, what type of video card...

Without knowing much more then what you gave, the first step I would do is Update the following drivers in order.

Direct X

without knowing the make of your motherboard or what video card you are running I can't lead you to the updated drivers but here is the like to Microsoft's Direct X
