    thank you very much for your advice on fixing my computer. the only thing is that its not a laptop, its a desktop. it sounds like your advice should work the same though. i dont have the disks though. my uncle passed away a few months ago and left me his computer for my school, and didnt keep the reboot disks. is there another way to fix the problem or do i need to purchase a new version of windows? regardless, thank you very much for taking the time to help me.

My compaq presario sr5030nx is a really horrible desktop computer i have used it for 3 years i am realy farmiliar with it and have browsed site all day trying to find a way to fix or identify my problem...


In this case the good solution would be to reinstall the operating system using a CD/DVD with windows, and to format all local disks. Or, buy a HDD DOC-station, and scan your HDD on an other computer using the antivirus, then delete all infected files. Even your original system would work.

Laptop keeps restarting


  1. See if you can start in Safe Mode (hit F8 before Windows loads - best way is to keep tapping F8 after you power it on. You should get a menu with "start in Safe Mode" as an option.
  2. Once booted in safe mode go to Control Panel, System, Advanced, ;Startup and recovery'.
  3. Click the Settings button and remove the tick from the "Automatically Restart" box.
  4. Click all the OK's to get back to Control Panel.
  5. Reboot as normal and the system should display an error code. Post that error code here and we can have a look at it.

PC keeps restarting itself. Trying to log on to my pc ,get to first vista page to choose my account and it restarts. Cant get as far as the start up button to do anything.


Reboot in safe mode (at very first manufacturers start-up screen, press and hold F8, choose "Boot in Safe Mode". When prompted, you can either a) System Restore to an earlier date, or B) load and then run anti-virus software. I would suggest updating your virus definitions first, then running a comprehensive virus scan BEFORE trying the System Restore (many re-boot issues are code-executed, and are usually because of a virus). If you need to do a restore, pick a date well before the problem occured, as is may be an older issue than just the re-boot problem!

Hope this helps!

Check to see if its over heating. That could cause it. Is there any other errors it displays? And when does it display that error before it restarts or after?

Rootkit


If you have a virus/spyware which it sounds like you do, you are going to be paying $200 for removal and about 129$ for a standard security setup! It will be cheaper to fix the problem, You are looking around a min. of $400 for a new pc and $149 for the full advanced security! Cheaper to fix it.
