Sounds like you could have faulty RAM or your HD has bad read/write sectors on it. Difficult to say without swaping out parts. Take it to a shop so they can figure out what needs to be replaced.

Restarts automatically


If you shut down your Windows XP-based computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down. The computer may also restart unexpectedly while you are using the computer to perform certain tasks. An error message may appear on a blue screen when the computer restarts.
This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advancedtab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If theAutomatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
I hope this has answered all your questions. If you have any other questions, please contact us at info@custompcrepair.org

How do I reboot vista laptop in order to remove radial point


a reboot is always a last resort!!! a better option to remove a program is to access control manager by pressing ctrl, atl, delete at the same time. when the prompt window is opened look through both processes and services tabs for anything related to the program hit stop process then just go to start>control panel>add/remove program. if that doesnt work restart your computer in safe-mode. if its a vista hit the power button let it rest for a sec then restart it. since the computer was improperly shut down it will ask if you want to start windows normally. don't instead choose start in safe-mode when it starts everything related to radial point will be shut down making it easy to remove the program through control panel. if you still whish to reboot shut down your computer by opening the start menu and in the lower right corner select restart. when the comp. restarts and the logo appears hit f8 quickly (you only have about 5 seconds before it restarts normally) choose boot with disk insert your start up disk and the computer will restart and all non-default programs will be lost. radial point will finally be defeated but at what cause? at what cause!!!??

My friend owns a joybook R53U with windows xp installed her computer froze and she switched off manually instead of shutting it down properly. now it turns on gets to the safe mode options part then loops...


Hmmmm....

Looping restarts are a pain, mainly because you cannot see the error code associated with them. I am going to assume it is a generic driver error (error code 0x00000007E). That is a generic driver issue. If you cannot start in safe mode, then you likely have a bad memory chip or a hardware device going bad (probably the video chip). Get the diagnostics discs and run some tests on the hardware and memory. IF your hardware passes the diagnostics, then the OS could have a faulty driver. If thats the case, you may need to reinstall. But, before you go that far, try replacing the memory chips.

PC SHUTS DOWN MONITOR AND FAN


Hi Brandy19960,

Thanks for the posting in FIXYA.

Please do the following steps:


Step – 1

Right-click on My Computer, open Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” Uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”



Step - 2


To change the setting, click Start --> Run--> type GPEDIT.MSC, click OK.

Drill down to Computer Configuration | Windows Settings | Security Settings | Local Policies | Security Options.

In the right pane, find “Shutdown: Clear Virtual Memory Pagefile.”

NOTE: Since someone actually has to have set this policy, the problem will be pretty rare, but is worth mentioning. However, Forum participant “roadrunner” reported that the personal security app Privacy Eraser automatically enables “Clear virtual memory pagefile,” and, therefore, may be the cause of a slow shutdown.



Step - 3

When Windows XP won’t powerdown automatically, the APM/NT Legacy Power Node may not be enabled. To enable this, right-click on the My Computer icon, click Properties | Hardware | Device Manager | View. Check the box labeled “Show Hidden Devices.” If it’s available on your computer, there will be a red X on the APM/NT Legacy Node. Try enabling it and see if this resolves the powerdown problem (Tip from Terri Stratton). Or, to check the other side of the APM/ACPI coin, open the Power Options applet in Control Panel. If there is an APM tab, make sure the “Enable Advanced Power Management Support” box is checked.


Step - 4
----------

Try a Shutdown shortcut -


For a shortcut to RESTART Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -r -t 01

For a shortcut to SHUT DOWN Windows XP:
SHUTDOWN -s -t 01

Step 5
---------

WORK-AROUND: Disable power management for your USB hub: Open Device Manager (click Start, click Run, type DEVMGMT.MSC, click OK). Double-click to expand Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Double-click USB Root Hub. Click Power Management. Uncheck the box “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power.” OK your way out

Step – 6
-----------
Click on the Start button.
Select Run from the menu.
In the run dialog box type “msconfig”.
Click OK.

Once in the msconfig utility select the startup tab. In the startup tab you will see several programs listed with a checkbox beside it. If there is a check mark beside the application listed, the application will startup when your computer starts up.

Regards
ELLIN

Try restarting in safemode.  Shut down your computer, then manually restart tap either the F8 key or F9 key, sorry I don't remember which key it is, but try F8 first.  Then go into safemode, when it's loaded try a restart and see what is does. Good Luck
