You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.
Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time.
Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost.
Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.
Try taken the bios battery out for about 30 secs, replace it and then reboot, after post press F8 untill you have a screen pop up with a safe mode option use the arrows keys to navigate to safe mode and press enter. In safe mode goto my conputer c:drive(boot drive) windows. In the windows folder look for a file called prefetch, delete all it contents. Exit out of everything and restart the pc. If same thing happens post back.
I think Windows is currupted You need to repair or re install operating system using Windows CD. try to repair using Windows CD
otherwise reformat the c drive and install the operating system.
It deffinately solves u r problem
Did you install any new software/drivers? Do you have properly updated Anti Viru installed? Sometimes misbehaving drivers force windows to restart again and again.
(Presumming that you are using Windows)
Try to start the computer in "safe mode" by constantly pressing F8 while start up. Next screen will show the options available for starting the computer.
OPTION 1:Choose "safe mode" from the option. Please wait for a while it takes some time. Once there please use the "system restore" option when dialog box appears asking for you to choose the next action.
OPTION 2: you can follow a longer process if you want to know which driver is actually malfunctioning. Choose "continue with safe mode" and type "msconfig" (do not include quotes) a new window will apear, go to "start up" TAB and uncheck all the items shown there. And resart the system normally.Now, go to run again and type "msconfig" go to "start up" TAB and check one item from there and click "ok" and restart your system. Do this untill you find the malfunctioning Driver, once you get hold of the culprit (note down the name) and restart the system once again in "safe mode" and when you reach the "start up" TAB under MSCONFIG, uncheck the specific driver and restart. Your System should work fine.
If this does not solve your issue, you will need the Windows installation disc to repair you windows instalation.
hi sunnyh, when you start up the PC start pressing the F8 key every 2 seconds. A dos like window will load. At the bottom of the list choose, last known good configuration. (win might load the last good configuration) it's worth the try.
If your PC still does not load windows than repeat the above, this time choose, Disable automatic restart on system failure.
This also might allow windows to load (hopefully).
A system that starts going into this restart loop happens for many different reasons. Most common reason was a program that was last installed just before PC was restarted. Second most common reason for restart loop. Added new hardware, bios changes & windows boot files corrupted. If you did install a program, uninstall it. If you were in your bios & made changes, reset the bios. If you flashed the bios, go back to the old bios version. If you added new hardware replace with older hardware.
To fix Windows you may have to reinstall it. Do not run format or you will loose all your data. Even system restore CD's allow for a win reinstall without a format, however if the cd does not allow you to reinstall win unless you do a format. Than windows startup files are too screwed up & you'll have no choice but to format.
All you can do is try the above & cross your fingers.
