Emachine EL1852 keep on restarting


Hi,
Does it load operating system fully before restarting?If it does,run a full scan of the drive with an updated anti-virus.
If not,do a reboot[enslave] of your hard disk from another computer.This is how to:-
Remove the hard disk from your machine.
Disconnect CD/DVD ROM from machine 2 and connect your hard drive.
Start the machine.'You're trying to run Unix' alert comes on, press f1[ save changes].
A disk check operation starts.This repairs the operating system on your hard disk.
After successful loading operating system of machine2,turn it off and remove your drive.
Fix it on your machine and start it.

Hope this helps.Thanks!

How to check a hard drive for errors in Windows


Windows comes with many diagnostic, repair, and maintenance tools that can help you get the most life and best performance out of your computer. One of these tools is the hard drive error-checking utility.<br /> <br /> Over time, your hard drive can develop problems, both with the physical disk itself as well as with corrupted areas of the file system. Running the error-checking utility can sometimes fix these problems, and if it can't fix them, it can at least identify and isolate them. It's a good idea to run error-checking once in a while to optimize your hard drive.<br /> <br /> To run Windows error-checking, follow the steps below.<br /> <br /> 1. Click on the Start button (in Vista, click on the Vista orb) to bring up the Start menu.<br /> <br /> 2. Select My Computer (in Vista, select Computer).<br /> <br /> 3. Right click on the hard drive you want to scan for errors and select <br /> Properties.<br /> <br /> 4. In the Disk Properties window, click on the Tools tab.<br /> <br /> 5. Under the "Error-checking" heading, click "Check Now...."<br /> <br /> In the Check Disk window that appears, there are two options. You can run error-checking with neither, one, or both of those options selected, depending on how intensive a scan you want to run (and how long you have to wait). If you check the first option (<i>Automatically fix file system errors</i>) and click Start, you'll be prompted to restart your computer in order for the utility to able to run; you can either restart now or restart later, and when the computer boots back up, the check disk program will run.<br /> <br /> The second option (<i>Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors</i>) can be run immediately, but it can take a lot of time to finish. The bad sector check has four phases, and you'll see a status bar to let you know how far along the check is. Only select this option if you don't need your computer for a while. If you are using a laptop, connect to an external power source before clicking Start to begin the scan.

Hi there Minhas.----------

Thats weird, can you flip your keyboard and give your keyboard some clean-up. From what i see you have a stock key, near the BACKSPACE.

And about your Restart thing. I suggest you Dust your Machine.

Hope that helps...
