When the system shut down and start over again is related to some drivers or software conflict.
Other cause are:

Bad power supply
Bad connectors or power button
Bad slot on your motherboard
Bad Video Card - Bad Modem Card

1) Did you install some hardware or software lately?
If yes Unistall everything.

If not Go to the bios and see if your video card was setup properly
Switch the modem to another slot available.
Do the same with your video card

If the system still does not reconigze the cards
Reinstal OS

Window 7 corrupt,how to reset because i m trying but not restarting my pc

If you did something to corrupt the software, then try resetting the machine using system restore. If you can't access the system restore start windows in safe mode. That should allow you to access it.

Why i cannot restart my E63 after install flipfont software & also crashed my system???

1. Since this problem has caused your system to crash, you will need to reset your phone. Only a hard reset is necessary in this case. Note that before you reset the phone make sure you back up all your information, as this reset erases everything on the phone and makes it brand new. Now remove your memory card, and turn on your phone. Simply dial: *#7370# It will demand for a security code; put in this code - 12345 , then ok. The phone will restart, while the reset takes place. Once this is done your new security code will be 12345.

My gateway laptop keeps shutting down. it is brand new

How long have you had it on. If you are not venting the heat out away from the processor, it will shut down to protect it. I suggest either take a small fan and blowing towards the computer. Or they make a chill pads for laptops about thrity dollars.

Take the modem out.Then start the computer,go to the device manager and start at the top of the list and right click and update drivers for each item Including the bus,then restart.

Also,If you don't really need dial up,Leave the modem out.
If you do need it,Wait until you have updated all the system devices and then put it back in.
