Reliability and Performance Monitor
Windows Vista contains an advanced reporting tool called the "Reliability and Performance Monitor", which allows you to check your system for any performance and reliability problems from the system logs and real-time monitoring.

Tips, advice and technical details of many problems that could be effecting your system are all generated within 60 seconds. It is surprisingly useful, even for advanced users.

To start the application, load “perfmon /report” from the run box (Press WINDOWS KEY + R to load this):

The Reliability and Performance Monitor will then spend 60 seconds analysing your computer:

Once the testing is complete, the tool provides a list of all of the problems and relevant notices about your PC. It is worth reading through the list to see if there are any serious problems that you should rectify. An example report is shown below:

Most advanced users will be able to track down the problems and improve the overall performance and/or reliability of the operating system.

I went to check my mail, and now receiving install windows message.I am using Acer M1461 Vista Home.Can't even load safe mode without pc rebooting itself and asking to relaod win.

Try to do a compleate power drain:
1)Shut down the computer completely
2)Unplug all the external devices like Printer/Scanner/Webcam/USB devices
3)unplug the power cable from the wall outlet,without the powercable plugged in try to press and hold the power button on the tower for 10sec. By doing this if there is any static power accumilated on the motherboard will drain off.
4)Try to turn on the computer,while the computer turns on keep hitting F8 on the keyboard/select safemode with networking option/if the computer boots on safemode and still says Installing windows leave the pc untouched for the windows to install. If not do a system restore.. which will take your computer to the previous working condition.

Xps 600 tower does not power up the monitor

The system will turn off if you hold down the power button for 10 secs. Can you check if other monitors work fine with this system?? (my best guess is - NO) since this monitor works well with other systems, the monitor being a failure is ruled out. So this boils down to a system failure & not a failed monitor. Worst case scenario this one must be a Motherboard & Power supply issue.

Desktop is blank

Shut your off. Wait 30 seconds. Boot the computer up into safe mode by pressing f8 before the Windows screen appears. Select Safe Mode and press enter. Once the desktop appears, restart your computer the normal way.

If it continues you should reinstall your operating system to fix the problem.

Desktop doesnt boot.

If you have a windows XP recovery CD, try running that at boot.

also, try pressing the f8 key to boot windows in safe mode.

it sounds like a corrupted OS install: if you can't recover, you may have to reformat your hard drive and reinstall windows.
