Question about PC Desktops
My CPU is an older model IBM. and when I turn it on it starts to boot up but right after the screen that says System Startin in Normal Mode before it should start windows it automatically reboots. Now I like to think I know a bit about computers. So Ive been able to only via F1 or F12 get to any other type of screen other than those other options on trying to remedy a solution to this particular problem Sir. Can u possibly help me or give a suggestion. I've been searching the web via Googleing the problem and haven't had any help thus far.
Your Windows simply isn't booting. It may give additional information, flashing it on the screen just before it does.
Try to start in Safe Mode by hitting F8 just as it says "Starting Windows". If you can boot in safe mode, you may be able to further diagnose the problem. If you get into safe mode, go to Start: Control Panels: System: Device Manager. See if any devices have error symbols next to them.
At this point, though, you may just want to save some time and try to boot off your Windows installation disks and reinstall Windows.
DO NOT USE A "SYSTEM RESTORE" disk -- that will wipe out your hard drive so it looks just like it did from the factory -- a working copy of Windows, but all your pictures, documents and everything else will be gone for good.
