Your computer may be Virus'd
Try tapping the F10 key as the PC is booting up,,and choose safe start.
If you can get that far, you can use system restore to restore to some previous date.
Then Scan for Virus and Malwear.

How to stop Windows 10 from automatically restarting after idle for around 5-15 minutes.


The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.
Before we proceed with the troubleshooting steps, please answer the questions given below.
a)Do you remember making any changes prior to this issue?
b)Did you check if all the drivers are up to date?
Let us follow the methods given below.
Method 1: Run System maintenance troubleshooter.
Follow these steps:
a) Press Windows key + W on the keyboard
b) Type Troubleshooter then click on Settings under the Search field
c) In Settings click on Find and Fix Problems
d) Click on System and security
e) Click System maintenance follow the prompts from there.
Method 2: Try booting the computer in safe mode and perform a clean boot.
Step 1: Perform Safe Mode
Click the link and follow the steps "Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)"
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/windows-startup-settings-including-safe-mode
Check if you face the same issue in safe mode. If the issue doesn't persists in safe mode, the place the computer in clean boot and check.
Step 2: Perform Clean Boot.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows 8 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
Important: Reset the computer to start as usual.
Note: After you have finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to boot to normal startup.
a) Press the 'Windows + R' key on the keyboard.
b) In the 'Run' windows type 'MSCONFIG' and click 'Ok'.
c) On the 'General' tab, click the 'Normal Startup' option, and then click 'OK'.
d) When you are prompted to restart the computer, click 'Restart'.
If the issue persists, I would suggest you to perform a system restore and check if it helps.
Method 3: Perform a system restore.
Refer to the link given below and follow the instructions for system restore.
How to restore, refresh, or reset your PC
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/restore-refresh-reset-pc
Also refer to the article given below.
Windows Kernel event ID 41 error "The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first" in Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

Why does my computer automatically shut itself down on the same day each week.


There are a couple possibilities...first, when you say shut down, do you mean that it restarts, or it actually shuts completely off? Windows update will auto-run weekly and restart the system if necessary. Otherwise, I'd suspect something with your antivirus scanner settings.

Internet barely works


Step 1:
Most of the programs running in the background of your computer start automatically during PC reboot. These applications were added to the Windows startup menu during default installation. However, you probably do not need all of the programs that are currently running on your computer all the time. This only slows down your PC and the reboot time. Fortunately, you can access the Windows startup menu and remove the programs you do not need to have running automatically. Turning off the programs shuts them down until you enable them again through the "Start" menu.

Go to the "Start" menu, type "msconfig" in the "Start Search" box and press "Enter" to start the System Configuration utility. Click the "Startup" tab in the System Configuration window. Uncheck the programs that you want to turn off and stop from running in the background. Click "Apply" and "OK" to save the new settings. Restart your computer.

Sony vaio vgn cs 12gh b at start up there is a beep beep sound, pretty loud, and when the password box comes it's automatically filling wwwwwwwwww endlessly. when it's finally open there is this...


Clear the saved passwords
Sony VAIO Care, an application pre-installed on most Sony laptops, is designed to automatically check for computer updates and to assist you with troubleshooting and maintenance. The application is configured to start as soon as the computer powers on. Although Sony VAIO Care is helpful, it is not necessary for it to launch automatically, as having too many programs launch at startup can cause your computer to run slowly. You can disable VAIO Care so it does not run at startup.

Click on "Start," then click "All Programs." Click on the "Accessories" folder. Click on the "System Tools" folder and click "Task Scheduler." Type your Administrator password, if asked for one, and click "Continue." The Task Scheduler window appears. Click on "Task Scheduler Library" in the left pane. Click on "VAIO Care." Click "Disable" under the "Actions" heading on the right side of the window. Close the window. When you next start the computer, VAIO Care will not automatically run

Hope this helps.

My computer restart after 30 min automatically


This could be a thermal problem, or perhaps some application is shutting down/restarting the PC? look in the "scheduled tasks". to see if anything is there, if so remove. Check in the Error logs to see if they report a problem. if so remedy it.

Using windows xp the system shutsdown again and again during my work without giving any warning, however working with windows ME it works smoothly, why?


Windows XP "works" the CPU more than Windows ME.
So, the computer heats up, as the CPU works "harder",
and the computer overheats, and shuts itself down.

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Remove the battery.
Purchase a can of compressed-air, and give the computer a "blow-job", to blow out all the accumulated dust, which is acting as an insulator, preventing the air-flow in the laptop from cooling itself down to "normal" temperatures.

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
