Rebooting problem All I know is that when I reboot a screen comes up that says there is a problem with one of the internal disks and there are so many unreadable files it takes a long time for it to go through before it gets to windows. I got it this far after it crashed.

If you are running Windows, and you are booting/crashing constantly, There could be many causes to this, but most likely your hard drive is failing. It is hard to say without seeing it in person, but to me it sounds like a new hard drive is in order. If you think it is a software issue, you can do a fresh install of Windows before purchasing a new hard drive to see if that clears up your problems.

My windows 8.1 wont reboot,screen goes blank then comes back on booted in an hour


Try rebooting into hardware mode and do any manual disk checks that determine of the disk is faulty. Check also that there is adequate RAM in the computer to run the OS. To little RAM can cause the machine to slow down to a crawl if it is low due to virtual memory disk swapping.

Computer comes on and is fine for a while then just cuts off,then turn it back on then its fine for a while then cuts back off.


Hello

To start with, you should check all your hardware. A loose connection somewhere or a faulty piece of hardware could be the reason, the computer keeps rebooting itself. In case your RAM stick is not fitted properly, or is corrupt, the computer displays an error message on the screen and keeps rebooting itself. The same problem occurs with a hard disk. You can use 'Memtest86' to run a hard drive check.

You may at times come across an error message on your screen, like a system failure error, before rebooting by itself. There is a particular solution to this type of problem. You should first go to the My Computer icon and right click on it. Select properties, and a window will appear on your screen. Click Advanced tab → Start Up and Recovery → Settings. After clicking the settings option, you will have to uncheck the box next to Automatically Restart. Click OK twice. This will prevent the computer from rebooting itself and you can redress the issue.

A different way to tackle the problem of 'computer keeps rebooting itself', would be to restart your computer in the Safe Mode. Allow the computer to boot fully and let your windows operating system load fully. Now, if your computer keeps rebooting itself even in the safe mode, there is a problem either with the operating system or hardware. And if your computer is not rebooting itself in safe mode, the problem is related to certain software.

Over heating is another reason why your computer keeps rebooting itself. Not many people pay attention to this aspect though. The fan responsible for keeping the CPU cool, may be malfunctioning or there could be dirt settled between the fan and CPU. Any one of these could be the reason for your problem. Either clean the fan area, or replace it if necessary. Try providing proper ventilation for your CPU, so that it stays as cool as possible.

You computer could reboot on it's own if you have installed improper drivers. Right click on the 'My Computer' icon, and click on 'Properties' from the menu list which appears. A new window will open. Select the 'Hardware' tab, and click on 'Device Manager'. A list will be displayed on the screen in which you will have to check all categories. Is you see any red or yellow warning icons, make sure you update that particular driver from the internet.

Laptop won't boot. No splash screen. Crash


Take out any USB device from the PC when rebooting: some BIOSes will incorrectly try to boot off them.

If that doesn't work, enter the BIOS Setup (F2 or Del key at boot) and find the Boot Devices menu, confirm that the highest-priority one is "Internal HDD" (or the name of your internal hard disk).

ASUS eeePC 900 Keeps rebooting at XP load screen.


You're computer is booting that's not your problem. Its just not booting into Windows which is a different subject, so a boot disk will not do you any good. You have some corrupted files at the Windows end not the start up end. The only way to correct the Windows corrupt files is to use a Windows disc. So you'll have to buy/borrow a portable DVD/CD player and a copy of windows. Once the Windows disc loads then its just a matter of clicking on "repair" when the disc asks..that one of the drawbacks of netbooks..If you have any questions let me know..

Sound is working but internal speaker is not working


Connecting headphones to the system will disabled the internal speakers until the headphone jack is disconnected, at which such time the internal speakers should function again.

If you disconnect the headphones and the internal speakers are not re-activated, then there may be damaged to the microswitch in the jack. (Try rebooting after the headphones are disconnected too)

E-Machines T3120 Keeps Rebooting


Try rebooting in Safe Mode (generally by pressing F8 as it comes up from a cold reboot). This will let you reset the PC to a date previous to when your cousin changed settings. You won't lose any documents or photos, it just puts system settings back to that point in time. Safe mode will look a little different than you're used to but that will be okay when done. After it comes up, go to Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Pick a calendar date that is in bold as this will have restore points for you to choose from. Make sure the radio button is picked that says restore my computer to an earlier time, click okay and let the system do its thing. This will take a few minutes. Let me know if this works for you or if you have any other questions.

Computer keeps rebooting.


Hi there, maybe I can help.
As your computer boots hit F8, go to the startup menu and disable "automatic restart on system failure". Boot up and make not of any error messages.

Let me know if this helps

Rebooting


Your boot registry has become corrupted. Reinstall windows from the disk, selecting the disk as master boot in boot up sequence in the bios settings. Goodluck and let me know if this resolved it for you.
