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 hp desktop says internal hard disk not found how do i reset my drive


First reset the CMOS. Check your motherboard specs for how to do this or remove the small round silver battery from the motherboard; wait 30 seconds and reinstall it. (It is a good idea to replace with a new battery.) This will reset the CMOS. Then reboot to see if HDD is detected. If not, go into the BIOS setup (repeatedly hit F10 at HP logo screen) and check to see if your hard drive is listed. You may have to set it to "on". If it is listed in BIOS, but not detected another drive (a bad one) could prevent it from being detected. If you have any removable or external drives attached to your computer, disconnect them. Reboot your computer to see if your HDD is detected. If not, open your case and disconnect the data cable from all drives except your primary hard drive. This includes the floppy, optical, zip, backup, or secondary hard drive(s). If your HDD is detected, reconnect each drives data cable one at a time rebooting between each. If after reconnecting a drive and rebooting, your HDD is not detected the last drive is a bad drive and preventing your HDD detection. I have found that sometimes a bad drive that is connected will let the HDD be detected then on later boots the HDD will not be detected. Also it is possible that your BIOS is corrupted. Let's hope not. Another possibility is a bad motherboard. I hope this helps you.

I was de fraging and my screen went black and I had to reboot after rebooting it came up saying. Hard disk failure imminent


Upon rebooting press f8 as long as option screen shows. This is a list of options that can help you recover your computers previous state. Choose Last known configuration and you're ready to go but if does not recover restart again, press f8 again and in the options choose load normally.

Thanks.

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.

After a long time trying to start my computer has a blank screen that says "system failure insert recovery disk" I have recovery disk that I made when the unit was new. but they do not do anything.


Try rebooting the computer with the back up disk inserted in the slot. This should work because the computer looks at all the disk drives when it reboots. And should default to the backup disk. :)

I cannot get my sign-on screen to appear, instead a black screen comes on with options that don't work.Need perhaps a starup CD-how do I get this?


ok you will have to get the cd from a retailer or call your computer manifacture to get the repair disk.
you can also try rebooting the computer and b4 you see the logo hit f1
or f2 or delete to get you into the bios. in the cmos you will look at the bottom of the screen or upper left and you will see load default.
click on load default and look to save and exit. allow computer to reboot. if this doesnt repair the problem then you will need to install the disk

Rebooting .. no effect on the monitor black blinking yellow light


Hi.
This is a hardware problem. If the machine seems to startup normally (apart from the monitor), then it is commonly caused by the video card coming loose. Turn it on, wait about 2 minutes until the drive activity dies down, then press the power button on the computer once. If the machine shuts down and turns off, then it had booted into windows normally and your data should all still be there. If you have a video card in the machine, unplug it, then re-seat it firmly and try again. If the machine is not booting (it doesn't shut down and turn off with a press of power), then unplug the RAM and the video card and press them back in firmly.

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
