When you press the power button do you hear the fan running, hear the disk drive running, see any lights, do you hear the cd drive click once and see the light come on briefly on the cd drive door? If you see all the aforementioned then it is surely trying to boot. Computers don't boot mainly because of the following problems. 1) Bad Power Cord or Power Supply. 2) Electro Static Buildup. 3) Bad Motherboard 4) Bad boot or system files. Remove the Power Cord and the battery if it's a laptop. Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 Seconds. Then replace only the Power Cord and try hitting the Power Button. If it boots you had an Electro Static Buildup. If you have boot or system files that are missing or corrupt normally the system will be telling you that on an error message that appears on the screen. Does your system show you anything on the screen when you press the Power Button? If not you have a Power Supply or Motherboard issue.
if nothing else is affected and everything runs fine after this then i would be careful on what you install because this could become a serious issue this happens because the computer notices an error on startup then either fixes itself or ignores the problem write back if the problem worsens
try to power up with power cord only and see if it works. If no lights turn on than your motherboard is dead. If it turns on and nothing happens make sure there is memory installed(RAM). If it turns on and you see windows screen than it shuts off than your operating system needs to be installed again. Also, you can try booting in safe mode by hitting f8 when you initially start your computer and see if it stays on and if it does you have a virus most likely. Good luck.
First you understand yourself is that after the windows logo screen apperars and its get restart means there is some changes or malfunction happened to your hardware - Although you changed your hard disk will not solve your problem. Please clarify as follows
1) did you load you operating system to this hard disk by any other computer help - if you load it with the same system try to reinstall the system.
If the problem existing 100% your motherboard is partially damage I think the uniprocessor side voltage variation is happening while you press keyboard some charge (voltage) you are supplying to the motherboard, sometimes some key pulse is more than 5 volt so that pulse support to get moved some points
First check your windows try to reinstall agian - I predict that you got this hard disk installed through some other laptop so the hardware configuration is different.
There are three ways to do this, depending on the mainboard style. Check for a jumper near the mainboard battery. If there is one, and it is a three pin style, move the jumper from the side it is on to the other side, then turn the power on (generally it will spin up, but nothing will happen), and then back off. Replace the jumper as it was originally and boot the system.
If there is a two pin jumper, remove the jumper, turn the computer on (again, it will probably not do anything), then turn the computer off and replace the jumper and reboot.
If there is no jumper, remove the battery, turn the system on, then off, then replace the battery and reboot.
