Do you see an error message at some point?
describe in which part specifically your computer restart?
what were you doing last before the computer started acting up on you?

it may be a driver problem:
have you tried to restart in safe mode?.. after the post sequence press f8 and start the computer in safemode. there are other options you may want to try from the advance startup menu that comes up when pressing f8. if you are able to start the computer in safemode your problem most likely is with a driver.

did you install new hardware?
try uninstalling the new hardware and restart the computer to see if that solves the problem

you may have a problem with some configuration files or booting files...
try to restart your computer with a windows 98 boot disk. first download the disk from http://www.bootdisk.com/ and make a floppy disk as directed. then get into the cmos/bios of your computer and make sure your first booting device is your floppy drive, then put your newly made win 98 boot disk in the floppy drive and restart your computer. at the prompt type c: then enter then type win

A brand computer like that will have a restore function this will reset all Operating System data and keep all the files in the DATA Partition of the hdd. So transfer all the files you want to keep and restart your computer and press the designated F key at the POST screen, you will find this in the manual.

How to reformat


To reformat a hard drive all you have to do is put in the cd with the operation system that you are going to install on the cd rom and follow the onscreen directions. It will take you to a page that will give you the format option. Make sure that you set your computer to boot of the cd drive instead of the HDD. Just keep in mind that all the data along with whatever windows you have on your system will be permanently lost, so you wanna backup everything that you want to keep.. Please let me know if this was helpful and if itsolved the problem and good luck..

Hi im trying to install and get going a lexmark 1250 the paper keeps jamming i think i have that fixed but now the power light keeps flashing and both inks are filled what could be wrong with this now i...



Most of the time this can be fixed by turning off the printer on the mains supply, leaving it for about 15secs and then turning the printer back on again.

A lot of the time a flashing status light either means that there is (or was) no paper in the printer, therefore you'll need to add some and press the paper feed button. Or the paper has jammed so you need to remove the blockage and reset the printer (turn it off and back on by the mains).
Most problems can also be solved by restarting your computer.

Railroad tycoon restarts computer while playing


Hello there,

Usually this happens when the computer is compatible to run the game but not compatible to keep it playing,,, meaning that the computer can execute the game (get it started) but fails to keep it going. The cause of this problem is the graphics adapter so a new graphics card will solve this problem, and remember when buying a graphics card make sure you buy one that is better than the one the game requires.

I hope i solved your problem.
