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.

I am attempting to set-up my printer threw a netgear wired router and can't get it to connect for some reason (using manufactures software even). My printer is a: Canon imageRuner 3300. I have attempted...


Often two firewalls on the same LAN conflict. Both are trying to do the same job; the conflict may cause an otherwise good Internet connection to drop. If this happens, use the NETGEAR firewall, and disable the other. Two situations are described here, but the general approach applies to any firewall active on a NETGEAR LAN.
The Windows firewall may be turned on without you knowing, for example, if the XP Network Setup Wizard was used.
To Disable Windows' Firewall
See Microsoft knowledgebase article: How to: Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewall In Windows XP. (Note that you must be logged on as administrator, if you are not, no "Advanced" tab will appear as described.) For hints about using these Windows features, search firewall in Windows help, and select the article Enable or Disable Internet Connection Firewalls.

To Enable the NETGEAR Firewall
Consult your router's User Guide or Reference Manual. Look for sections such as "Using Basic Firewall Services" or "Allowing and blocking keywords, sites, services". Manuals are available for downloading on this site.

To Disable the Norton Firewall
  1. Right-click the Norton Internet Security icon on the system tray and select Disable.

To Disable the McAfee Firewall
  1. Uninstall McAfee
  2. Reinstall McAfee, selecting Custom Installation.
  3. Unselect McAfee Firewall.
  4. Finish the rest of the McAfee installation as you did before.
To Disable Zone Alarm
  1. Right-click the Zone Alarm icon in the System Tray, and select Shutdown Zone Alarm.
Also search the Zone Alarm forum for such issues as this product continually logging people off AOL, or Windows XP wrongly reporting that Zone Alarm has been turned off.

There can be some situations when the printer installer will not work on the computer. Sometimes there is a fault in the CD or sometimes there is a fault within the program. In any case, the printer can still be installed on the computer using the Add Printer Wizard feature of Windows. The wizard lets you choose the port where the printer will be connected as well as other settings of the printer. or get more help from here . Hope this helps you.

I have a dell smart step 100 d its constantly rebooting


Hello.

Even though you said that you changed every piece of hardware, just for good measure I wanted to tell you that there are three reasons that a computer reboots itself: 1. Memory, 2. Power supply 3. Operating system problem, such as malware.

Hope that helps, although you may have done the above.

You will need to download and install the vista driver for this to work on your vista computer. XP & Vista drivers are not the same and that is the reason it will work on the XP computer but not on the Vista computer. Driver should be available from the hardware manufacturers website. Hope this helps.

Ok here is the long version present configuration.. 2 computers one running vista and one running xp 2 printers one hp all in one series 1400 and one samsung laser I had a tech network the printers so...


Why don't you get 1 wireless printer and install the software on both computers and print from both? Also if/when you get a network printer set the IP manually. That way it never changes. (read on...)

Sharing printers was all the rage back in 1985 (Back to the Future movie) ... not anymore. Your probably having Windows networking problems. Disappearing hosts on the Windows network ... and everytime you reboot whoever comes on 1st gets to be the Master Browser and keep the list of computers on the WIndows network. And often that one just doesn't "get" the other computer (or two or 3) on the network for some reason.

Also problems can happen if the ip addresses are DHCP assigned (very likely) so they keep changing and one computer remembers an old ip and it gets broken all over again.

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.
