PC keeps restarting - cannot get into safe mode or system restore
My HP desktop keeps restarting in normal mode. When I go into safe mode it gets stuck and never makes it to the desk top.
I have not recently installed anything new. Even if I could I wouldn't want to do a system restore to an earlier point as I'd JUST downloaded my daughter's first birthday videos onto the PC and erased them from my camera. So I have no backup for those precious memories which can't be replaced. :(
Any help is TRULY appreciated!!!!
Computer restarts itself every two minutes. I can't restart in safemode because the blue screen pops up. I can't get on to the homescreen to download a virus remover. I did system restore but it didn't help. And if i try system recovery the screen goes black. Before all this happened i was getting chinese pop ups and i get a brsvc01a.exe error. I'm at a complete loss.

AS YOU ON THE SYSTEM AND EVEN BEFORE WINDOWS
STARTS KEEP PRESSING THE F8 KEY CONTINUEOUSLY. A MENU WILL APPEAR. SELECT SAFE
MODE AND ENTER. WINDOWS WILL LOAD IN SAFE MODE. THIS WILL SOLVE SOME OF YOUR
PROBLEMS. NOW RESTART THE SYSTEM IN NORMAL

WITH LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION " AND THEN RESTART. THIS WILL SURELY
SORT OUT YOUR PROBLEM.
Try to restore your machine first to an earlier time by doing system restore on safe mode if you cant log in to the normal windows.
1. After restart keep pressing F8 or keep tapping F8 until Advance Boot Menu appear
2. Use arrow key to navigate then choose Safe Mode
3. Click Start button then choose All Programs
4. Click Accessories then choose System Tools
5. Click System Restore then follow the intruction on the window.
Your computer will automatically restart when system restore is finish
If this doesnt work then you need a Windows CD to reinstall you Windows again.

Please restart your computer and keep tapping F8 key, you should see a screen which while give you options to choose like normal mode, safe mode etc. In that screen please use your up and down arrow key to choose last known good configuration and hit enter.
This should take your computer back to the previous settings when your computer is working fine.
Note: if you have allready tried to go to safe and were able to go to safe mode then do not choose this method.
If you can go to safe mode use system restore (steps vary from windows version to version). Restore you computer's settings to a previous setting (Steps for XP - Start - Programs (or all programs) accessores - system tools and click on system restore and follow the onscreen instructions to restore your computer settings to a day or 2 previous to installig the new software.
Note: this system restore does not destroy your data (your pictures and files) but you will loose the new softwares installed between today and the day you choose.
1) Switch on PC 2) Continuously press the F8 key until you have a menu presented 3) Choose safe mode from the options 4) Once safe mode has loaded Click on Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System restore
Inn system restore choose a date (in bold) to before the problem occured, then click next and follow the instructionss through.
The PC will ask to restart click on Yes and then hopefully the PC will load into normal windows
You can try installing SP3 in safe mode, so that It doesn't conflict with any application software. It should get installed successfully and problems should be fixed. (Restart PC and keep tapping F8 to get advanced menu options and choose safe mode from there) Let me know if you need any more help !
Try to boot into vista's safe mode, this can usually be done by pressing F8 after POST, but before you see the vista loading screen.
Once in safe mode go to:
Start > Control Panel > System
on the left you will see " Advanced System Settings " Click that
a new window will pop up with your system properties, click the " settings " button near " startup and recovery "
Make sure the little check-mark near " restart automaticly " is NOT check, then apply, and OK out of all screeens and reboot the system. If the problem persist, you may need to insert the Vista disk into your system, and do a recovery, or restore.
choose start windows in Safe mode, if it starts then everything will look big, don't worry about that for now. Then go to Start>accessories>system Tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that everything was working normally, when it has finished restoring the computer will restart. If asked choose start windows normally.
