One problem can be that the router and net is on while you turn on your computer, so turn off the internet and router. Another problem is that its an annoying virus that forces the computer to restart itself.

Compaq presario wont start up


Several things could cause this. First try eliminating a few potentials sources of the problem --unplug external devices from the computer like external hard drives, usb sticks, printers, external speakers, etc. and see if you can boot the computer normally. If you can boot normally, try rebooting into safe mode and then running chkdsk. You may have to tap F10 repeatedly during rebooting to get to option such as safe mode. Allow chkdsk to complete its run; that takes considerable patience. IF you need to know how to run chkdisk, you can look that up in the F1 help screen while in safe mode. Uninstall whatever software you installed just before the crash. Reboot and allow normal booting. BUT BACKUP your critical information immediately if you get a good boot!

IF that does not fix the problem, you might have to look into using the recovery partition. That will likely allow a return to factory defaults, either with an erasure of your data or not, depending upon which option you decide upon. If all is erased, you may have to reinstall a considerable amount of software and reactivate windows via the internet. How do you get to the recovery partition? That is probably an option popping up when you hit F10. "R" for recovery.

Computer comes on and is fine for a while then just cuts off,then turn it back on then its fine for a while then cuts back off.


Hello

To start with, you should check all your hardware. A loose connection somewhere or a faulty piece of hardware could be the reason, the computer keeps rebooting itself. In case your RAM stick is not fitted properly, or is corrupt, the computer displays an error message on the screen and keeps rebooting itself. The same problem occurs with a hard disk. You can use 'Memtest86' to run a hard drive check.

You may at times come across an error message on your screen, like a system failure error, before rebooting by itself. There is a particular solution to this type of problem. You should first go to the My Computer icon and right click on it. Select properties, and a window will appear on your screen. Click Advanced tab → Start Up and Recovery → Settings. After clicking the settings option, you will have to uncheck the box next to Automatically Restart. Click OK twice. This will prevent the computer from rebooting itself and you can redress the issue.

A different way to tackle the problem of 'computer keeps rebooting itself', would be to restart your computer in the Safe Mode. Allow the computer to boot fully and let your windows operating system load fully. Now, if your computer keeps rebooting itself even in the safe mode, there is a problem either with the operating system or hardware. And if your computer is not rebooting itself in safe mode, the problem is related to certain software.

Over heating is another reason why your computer keeps rebooting itself. Not many people pay attention to this aspect though. The fan responsible for keeping the CPU cool, may be malfunctioning or there could be dirt settled between the fan and CPU. Any one of these could be the reason for your problem. Either clean the fan area, or replace it if necessary. Try providing proper ventilation for your CPU, so that it stays as cool as possible.

You computer could reboot on it's own if you have installed improper drivers. Right click on the 'My Computer' icon, and click on 'Properties' from the menu list which appears. A new window will open. Select the 'Hardware' tab, and click on 'Device Manager'. A list will be displayed on the screen in which you will have to check all categories. Is you see any red or yellow warning icons, make sure you update that particular driver from the internet.

I may have a virus. Operating program won't open. Shall I rebote the system?


try restarting the PC in Safe Mode. Upon reboot keep pressing the F8 key. It will open a selection menu for you to choose safe mode. Go into Safe Mode and open your My Computer and right click on the C drive and go down to properties. THen go to the Tool tab and select the Check Disk option. It will ask you to check two boxes and then it will say you need to reboot your PC. Reboot your PC and let it run. Once its done it will automatically start back up with the OS. If your still having issues then restart the pc and go back into safe mode and this time run your anti virus program.

Hope this helps...

My hard drive got unplugged without being stopped and now keeps running into read errors


Hopefully, the read errors are not from physical damage.
These are the steps that you need to take, and the instructions on how to do it:
1. Reboot into Safemode
2. Run a virus and spyware scanner
3. Defrag
4. Scandisk
5. Registry error repairing
6.Reboot into regular mode windows

Here is how to do it:
Reboot yor machine while holding the F8 key right as it boots back up. A menu will apear. Choose -->"start windows in safe mode with networking".
Windows will start in safe mode. Run an AVG virus scan, then run Defrag by exploring your computer, right click on C: drive, click PROPERTIES, then the TOOLS tab, click the "check now" button, and both checkboxes,both 'fix file system errors', and "scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors" then click ok, the computer will then tell you it will scan upon next reboot (which upon reboot will take about an hour). Now click the DEFRAG NOW button. then choose defrag. After Defrag runs for about an hour and it is finished, restart the system. If is still won't run normally, go back into Safemode buy pressing F8 on reboot, then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot again. If it still won't run right, you may want to format the hard drive and reinstall Windows and see if that works. If reinstalling windows doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem.
PRINT THESE INSTRUCTIONS AND KEEP A COPY NEAR YOUR SYSTEM FOR FUTURE PROBLEMS. THIS SERIES OF STEPS CAN FIX MANY PROBLEMS
Good luck.
James.

Laptop keeps restarting


  1. See if you can start in Safe Mode (hit F8 before Windows loads - best way is to keep tapping F8 after you power it on. You should get a menu with "start in Safe Mode" as an option.
  2. Once booted in safe mode go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, ;Startup and recovery'.
  3. Click the Settings button and remove the tick from the "Automatically Restart" box.
  4. Click all the OK's to get back to Control Panel.
  5. Reboot as normal and the system should display an error code. Post that error code here and we can have a look at it.

A constant reboot cycle is happening. Fires up and just as the desktop appears the computer reboots. I can get into bios screen, and don't see anything out of the ordinary.


try safe mode, F8. Then right click my computer, click properties. Open advanced tab, choose settings under startup and recovery section, Make sure restart on failure is unchecked. When you restart, record any messages you get for troubleshooting purposes.

It will boot up to the windows screen and freezes. There is no mouse control.


WIN XP ONLY!

Upon booting, beofre Windows Logo, press F5 key to get computer to boot into SAFE MODE/Administrator. See if you have mouse control under this mode. If yes, then there's a good chance that the mouse is OK .

once in SAFE MODE and are able to regain mouse, the chances are good that you can just restart the computer and everything will return to "normal".

Suggestion #1: reboot computer to NORMAL after having sucessful SAFE MODE mouse test.

Suggestion #2: see if you have a recovery point (system restore) before the mouse issue came about.

Hi from london, have new acer aspire 1 zg5 new keeps shutting down after boot can u hlp pls?


Try booting the system to Safe mode.

To boot to safe mode:
Restart the computer. As soon as the BIOS has finished loading, keep tapping on F8 key on your keyboard. When the Windows Options menu appears select the "Safe mode" then press Enter.

Once you managed to boot to Safe mode, change the computer startup and recovery settings by right-clicking "My Computer" then select Properties. Select Advanced tab. Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings. Uncheck the box for "Automatically restart" under System Failure.

Reboot again normally, see if it will reboot again by itself. If you managed to make the system boot normally, proceed to Events Viewer to find out what is the caused.

If the system failed to boot normally after doing the above, you might want to boot the system to "Last known good configuration"
