Just check if you get a blue screen with lots of text messages just before your PC reboots. also if you have any hardware knowledge or if not ... get your vendor to check the RAM and also check if your CPU fan is working properly.... let me know...

My pc times out and quits downloading, would like to let it run all night if needed.


A couple things to check.

1. Check your network adapter under Network and Sharing Center then on to Change Adapter Settings. Right click on the adapter in question and select properties and click Configure. Go to the Power Management tab and make sure the Allow the computer to turn this device off to save power is not selected.

2. You might also want to turn auto tuning off for Windows TCP settings as well.

Start a DOS command prompt as administrator and type this

netsh int tcp set heuristics disabled

and

netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled

Reboot your computer.

Computer will not boot


Switch ON the PC, boot the PC in 'Safe Mode' by continuously tapping F8 button after you switch On until you get the Safe Mode Option.

Let windows boot in Safe Mode and log in to windows.

Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'


A 'System Restore' window will appear.

Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next


Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.


Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.


The detail of that particular date should show "System Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.


Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.

After reboot your problem should be resolved.

Laptop restarts over and over


Is it Win XP or Vista? hit F8 and see if you can get into Safe Mode, if you can goto start , run and type msconfig, disable all and reboot.

If you cant get into to safe mode, hit F8 when computer turns on and scroll to Last Known Good Configuration. see if lets you in.
If you are running Win XP and none of that works. You will have to run your XP CD and do an OS repair, just load the XP CD at boot when setup starts hit ( Enter F8 then R) let it do its thing. Hope this helps Good Luck.

Long booting up in takes 2-3 hrs. before my OS start


Two to three hours is a long time! It sounds like your hard drive is getting ready to crash.

If your computer is running, click Start and, in the search box, type

eventvwr

and press enter. (If you have XP, click Start -> Run and type eventvwr).

Under Windows Logs, click System. On the right side, click Source. All the events will sort by source. Scan the list for any "disk" errors. If you are getting disk errors, your hard drive is crashing. You should either take your computer to a competent professional to get the hard drive imaged, or purchase a new hard drive and do the imaging.

Booting


You need to, either, turn it off at the power button when it starts to reboot so as to do a hard shut down, or if that doesn't work,  when it is booting up, press F8 continually until you enter safe mode and then select 'last Known Good configuration', press enter for a reboot and it should be ok.
