Yes that is a hardware problem, your video card seems to be malfunctioning, if that is newly upgraded you need to install its driver in order to function correctly. and if the symptoms persist you need to install a new video card or try the on board video card

How do I repair a system that boots to the Windows 7 logo and then reboots itself a second time?


I agree (in part) with "map9966's" answer, but instead of trying to blindly load the "last known good configuration", You really should try the Windows Startup Repair option. This option should also be located in the "safe mode" menu, which again access by repeatedly pressing F8 right after turning on the PC. Once you get to the menu stop pressing F8.

Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, highlight the choice which reads (something to the effect of) "startup repair". The PC then *should* "boot" to the start up repair mode. This mode is an automatic utility, and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the speed of your PC, the severity of file system damage and the underlying cause of your start-up loop. Let the utility finish, (again, this WILL take awhile.. go have yourself a snack, take a walk, watch some TV..) Once it's done, restart the PC.

In most circumstances (assuming the start-up loop isn't due to a hardware failure), your PC should boot up just fine. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me!

1988 ford ranger 2.9 ltr engine stalls while driving , restarts in a few minutes usually


There are several possibilities, but based on how you described the symptoms I suggest a profile igniton pickup. On these systems the failure usually begins as dropping a cylinder occasionally,like a misfire,mostly during high underhood temperatures,will manifest into stalling and finally into a stall with no resart condition. Symptoms are most likely to occur in summer. The pickup is inside the distributor and the distributor must be disassembled to install it,the trickiest part being the removal and installation of the distributor drive gear. They are iron and easily broken. The simplest solution is another distributor. The ignition modules typically do not fail in this manner,but this is classic for the pickup coil. A code for loss of pip signal should be present, it is possible for a code to not be present,though very unlikely. Having worked on these systems for years this would be my first area of diagnosis.

My Asus motherdoard P7P55LX, Core i5 System is restarting at startup


It would appear that the RAM installed has problems. One of the RAM modules is most likely defective or does not want to work with the other. Module incompatibility is rare, but does occasionally occur. Try running the machjine with just one of the RAM modules installed at a time. This may help you isolate the defective one.

Sounds like a faulty wireless card or the card is installed with the wrong version driver.The wireless card itself sounds to be bad and needs replacing

When I start my computer it shuts down and reboots about 4 times before it will finally start properly


Hello

A computer that constantly reboots can have one of several issues, and can be hard to troubleshoot if it will not stay on. Viruses and spyware can cause the computer to reboot continually, but hardware failure or power issues can also be the root of the problem. There several ways to approach the troubleshooting process.

Hardware failure can cause a never-ending reboot cycle; eliminate the most common causes first. Replace memory chips one at a time to rule out a bad stick of RAM. If the memory checks out, boot from the Windows CD and access the Recovery Console. Run chkdsk /R at the command prompt to check for problems with the hard drive. Remove any optional cards that were added in to the computer (such as a sound or network card) to eliminate them as the cause.

Press the F8 key while the computer is starting up to access the advanced start-up options. Select "Last Known Good Configuration," and press Enter. If that does not work press F8 again, and select "Safe Mode" this time. If you are able to access Windows in Safe Mode, disable the option to automatically restart Windows after system errors by right-clicking on the My Computer icon and selecting "Properties." On the Advanced tab, click the "Settings" button under "Startup and Recovery" and clear the check box labeled "Automatically restart." This will allow you to restart the computer without getting stuck in the reboot cycle. Ensure that your antivirus and antispyware software is up-to-date, and perform complete scans for any infections. Remove any newly installed software that may be incompatible with Windows, and update drivers for your hardware.

Replace the power cord to the computer, replace the power strip it's plugged in to, and try a different outlet. If nothing else helps, try a new power supply. Be sure to purchase one with enough power for your computer: use a high-performance power supply for a gaming computer or a lower-performance power supply for a regular workstation.

My dell lcd monitor will not stay on


If the problem related to wrong PC (video adapter) settings, during boot-up, right after BIOS started, press F8 button to call OS startup menu, choose there 'VGA Mode', then OS will be loaded with basic VGA settings (640x480 250 colors), so you will be able to set other display settings, proper for your monitor.
But all that, of course, won't be possible if the monitor itself shuts down, that would be completely different story.
Confirm what exactly is wrong, Display Settings or the monitor itself?
