Unwanted rebooting of laptop

My 3 year old Averatec 3300 laptop running Windows XP keeps resarting itself for no reason over the past 3-4 months. It now does so fairly frequently.
a) how do I stop this from happening?
b) I have tried to restore the laptop to August 2008, but when I try to restore it only lets me go back to november 2008 - how do I go back further?

You may not be able to go farther back than november, but if you have a virus, restore wont fix it. if its not a virus, it could also be the power supply unit.

My Averatec 3200 keeps shutting itself down. The


A common problem with all laptop is dust. Sounds like you have 5 years worth of dust stuck in there. You should get a can of compressed air and blow though every vent you can! You want to loosen the dust that's in there and possibly try to blow it out and/or get it closest to the vents.

After that you should take a vaacum cleaner and **** out all the dust you can!

Dust inhibits air flow, alot! Its the number 1 killer of old computers.

I had the same problem. It was the motherboard. I think it was caused from over heating. Sorry it does not solve your problem, but at least you know the possible problems.

My laptop starts, then when it shows the windows xp page, it like reboots again by itself repeating the same thing..what's going on?


Press F8 as the computer starts to boot to enter safe mode. Check that there is nothing silly going on once it has booted and then try to restart.

Keeps restarting


There's seems to a problem with your laptop, obviously. This behaviour is a bit natural when a computer suddenly found an error it will keep in rebooting to try to free itself of error. Why not have it check again.

It could be the newly installed dvdrom is not properly reset in bios configuration. Have the new drive be redetect. And set it also in OS, change the settings to the newly installed drive. Or maybe uninstalling and reinstalling its driver to fit into the new drive.

hope I help.

Averatec laptop running Windows XP keeps restarting itself


A couple of suggestions...

First off you might have a hadware getting ready to fail. Follow this link it might be helpful

http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001088.htm

Second, it might be you have a virus. If so try booting into safe mode run cntrl+alt+del and look for files in caps (especially LSASS.exe and WINLOGON.exe) if these files are corrupted then you might want to start backing up your data and reinstalling the OS. Otherwise run a virus scanner like xoftspy to check for viruses.

Lastly in XP, for system restore to work you needed to make periodical check points so it is correct if the last restore point was August 2008.

The only other thing I can think of is going into bios and seeing if the computer reboots itself. This would probably eliminate any virus and point out a harware failure.

Averatec USB ports


Hi, A couple of things you can try: 1. In your Device Manager, un-install all USB instances then reboot. Win XP will auto detect and auto install back the USB drivers; 2. On reboot, again in your Device Manager, all instances of USB Root HUB, right click, click on Properties, Power Management tab, un-check "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power." 3. Download, install and use to format flash drives the HP Drive Key Boot Utility (cp006049.exe) available at http://h18023.www1.hp.com/support/files/server/us/download/23839.html If for some reason none of the above will for you, you may need to install an external/powered multi-port USB 2.0 Hub. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.
