Re: pc restarting after 3mins or so

Change the memorie moudules, if you have more than one, try with one, then the other to see which one is the one in trouble, if you know how to open your PC clean the memorie modules with a soft eraser. Good luck

Auto restart

Your machine is rebooting itself while you watch a movie on it? Could be a couple of things. First, is this a laptop or desktop? When is the last time you updated your video drivers? If this is a laptop, does it get very hot just before rebooting?

Theories work like so:
1. older video drivers can be causing a cpu panic condition due to a bug. This is more common with PC games vs. watching movies, but still possible. Updating your video drivers may help fix the problem if that's the cause.
2. heat: if the computer overheats, it will reboot to protect itself. As for why it's getting hot--could be that your video hardware or cpu is getting too hot playing the movie. Could be that your cooling fans are bad. This is why I asked about the machine getting hot.

Another possibility is the need to update either your BIOS or hardware drivers.

Please post more info if you require additional help.

My pc will restart itself ..... but when i play games it wont restart ...i already turn off auto restart.... change the power supply to 500watts... but when i surf the net it will restart suddenly but...

Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

I have no audio device manager in xp says there is no device

Hi, welcome to FixYa.

The Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio driver for Windows may be corrupted or causing problems with the audio driver installation.
To resolve this, try the following:
1. Click Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs.
2. Look for the following two items: Realtek High Definition Audio Driver and High Definition Audio driver Package - KB888111.
3. If these items are listed in Add/Remove programs, remove them.
4. Restart Windows.
5. Download the latest audio driver for your PC.
6. Double-click the filename to extract the files.
7. Go to the folder where the files have been extracted and browse to the \HDAQFE\xpsp2\us\ folder or the \MSHDQFE\Win2K_XP\us\ folder. (The name of this folder depends on your PC model.)
8. Double-click the file kb888111xpsp2.exe to install the High Definition Audio Driver Package.
9. Restart Windows.
10. Install the audio driver.

What steps will be done in order for me to reformat my computer?

1) All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) continuously after restarting your computer.

2) Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)

3) Place the CD-Rom as the first boot and see to it that the bootable CD of Operating system you want is inserted in the CD-Rom. Then Place harddisk as the second booting device. Third and fourth booting devices are not usually important.

4) Save the changes and Exit. This will restart your computer automatically.

5) When your computer restarts wait until you see a message saying.........
Boot to CD........<----if this showed up hit any key to boot to CD. This will make your computer refer to the CD.

6) They will ask you if you want to delete or to create a new partition. For me just delete the partition and do not create anymore partitions. This will only slows your computer down.

7) After Deleting the partitions, they will ask you if you wanted to format you PC. There are 4 choices in there:

a. Quick format (FAT)
b. Format (FAT)
c. Quick format (NTSF)
d. Format (NTSF)

Choose the format either NTSF or FAT. Sometimes quick formatting result to corruption of some files.

8) The computer will copy the contents needed from the CD to your PC and installs it. Windows will appear but i know when you see one you can understand what to do. It will just ask for date and time and user name if you want to.

9) After the installation is complete the computer will automatically restart.

10) Once restarted, set the display in your choice. You can do anything now. Congratulations, you now can reformat

Computer boots until "press del" screen and restarts continuously

You answered your problem my friend
Its a ram problem,try to take out the corrupted ram ( slot1) and start your computer.
Generally this Stop message indicates that a kernel-mode process or driver attempted to access a memory address to which it did not have permission to access. The most common cause of this error is an incorrect or corrupted pointer that references an incorrect location in memory. . When it occurs in kernel mode, it generates a STOP 0x0000000A message. If you encounter this error while upgrading to a newer version of Windows, it might be caused by a device driver, a system service, a virus scanner, or a backup tool that is incompatible with the new version.

System restarts automatically

1st) I would suggest disconnect EVERYTHING from the motherboard. Keep keyboard, mouse and of cause the monitor.turn on....wait your 10-15 minutes, play with the keyboard, flutzz with the mouse..
Nothing happens,TURN OFF cpu, add ONE other device, continue doing the same thing until something happens after a device is installed, that could be your problem. 2nd) your turning on and off the power supply could cause it to crash, then THAT is your problem.too Low or too high power supply voltages causes your cpu to reset in order to protect itself {By forcing the power supply to "crase & burn" u forced the issue.

Pc restarting.


If your PC (and I will assume a desktop) restarts without going into a dump or blue screen of death (BSOD), it is possible that you have a hardware fault. The possibilities could be:
1. defective capacitors near the CPU.They should be visually checked for any swelling, dielectric leakage or anything out of the ordinary. If the top is bulging, then they have overheated;
2. defective/underrated power supply; and/or
3. defective (or slow) CPU fan (or sometimes that of the video card).

In some instances, some virus have been known to cause a forced restart.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with brand/model of your PC/motherboard or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
