Automatically rebooting computer after power failure

I know you can set a computer to reboot automatically after power is restored following a power outage but I can't seem to get my computer to comply. How do I do this?

The bios settings turn the computer on automatically. I actually have mine set to turn on automatically in the morning before I get out of bed so it's already on when I get up. Watch what you see on your screen as you boot up the computer and do whatever it tells you to do to boot up in bios (typically by hitting the F2 or Del key). Once in bios, go to the power section. In the power setting you should see something pertaining to the modem. If you do NOT want it to power up automatically, choose the Disable option. If you DO want to power it up automatically, it will also ask for a time (day of month, hour, minute). If you set the day as 1, for example, it will power up on the 1st of the month at the time that is set. If you set the day of the month to zero (0), it will power up every day at that time.

The system reboots on its own. especially when streaming video from the interent.


When a system reboots on its own thats usually a sign that either 1. Your cpu or computer is overheating or 2. that your power supply is insufficient to power everything you have.
Did you recently make any additions to the computer? upgrades? If so verifiy the power supply is strong enough and you may want to purchase a new one. a 600-650w Power supply should be sufficient to power almost all home computers and can be found cheap on sites like newegg.com.
Check and see if the computer is hot to the touch (be careful). If it is you may need to clean out fans, install more fans. Check the processor heat sync make sure the fan is working. Install thermal paste if you dont have it between the processor and heat synce etc. To cool it down. Also you may want to move the computer out some so it has room to breathe, It shouldnt be stuck in a small/tight area.
One other thing it could be is you could have it set to automatically reboot upon receiving serious errors with windows. You can turn this feature off to see if errors are the cause. to do so (from the Microsoft Site)
Microsoft Windows XP
  1. Click Start, and then right-click My Computer.
  2. Click Properties.
  3. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  4. Under System failure, click to clear the Automatically restart check box.
  5. Click OK, and then click OK.
  6. Try to reproduce the error message.

  1. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, click Control Panel, click System and Maintenance, and then click System.
  2. Click Advanced System Settings.
  3. securityshield.jpg If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  5. Under System failure, click to clear the Automatically restart check box.
  6. Click OK, and then click OK.
  7. Try to reproduce the error message.

Once you do this if it gets an error rather then rebooting you will be greeted with a blue screen and error. you can copy down the error message and come back here for a solution.
Good luck.

What do i do when comp turns on by itself and say diskette fail


You have a BIOS setting which is prompting your computer to turn on automatically at which point it is trying to read your floppy drive. Step 1, disable your floppy drive as it is no longer supported by the computer industry, then look for settings in your BIOS that have to do with powering on automatically or WO (wake on) settings and disable them.

Can't Sign into Windows...How to do system reboot if I can't log in to windows?


Hi e_norris

Do you have either the Windows installation disk or a Recovery Disk. Some manufacturers ship the Recovery Disk with the PC others require you to create one when you first turn the computer on.

My laptop is rebooting automatically


Try to start your computer in safe mode and uninstall your last installation of antivirus then try again. Make sure your computer is not set to automatically reboot after any updates or anything. These settings should be in your anti-virus software

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
