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.

I have a Dell Inspiron 560. An ad keeps blinking


Hi,

Yes, this online back up ad can be annoying at the best of times.

The best thing to do is to completely uninstall Dell Datasafe from the computer.

Go to the control panel and look for programs and features (this is vista) uninstall a program in Windows 7.
There should be 3 datasafe programs for you to uninstall, once you have uninstalled all 3 programs restart your computer and the problem should be solved.

If after that the problem continues, you need to use your windows cd and use the opcion (R) recovery console.

How can i format my hp desktop??


Well there are a couple different solutions. If you have another hard drive replace it with your other one and make the one that you want to format the secondary hard drive. Then after you boot the computer, all you gotta do is go to my computer and which ever drive the hard drive is set up on you can right click on the right drive. Go to where it says format and click on it and then follow the instructions.

You can also format the hard drive if you got a windows disk. Just put the disk in your cd-rom and restart the computer and then go through the setup process. You will get to a point where it will ask you if you wanna keep the files the same or do you wanna format the hard drive. There are two options for fomatting: There is a quick format or a full format. If you wanna totally wipe everything off the hard drive make sure you do the full format. It only takes a little while longer than the quick format process, so you are just better wiping it totally clean and then reboot windows on the hard drive when it is done formatting......
