It is in auto reboot mode when a failure occurs. You need to take note of the SC Code that appears before it reboots. That will tell you what is malfunctioning. If it boots up with that - as in immediately - unplug the machine, remove the hard drive, plug in and reboot. Does it still occur? Yes? You need a service tech to check it out. No? Replace the HDD.
Pulling the KSU power cord for 30 secs will reboot it, if that's all you want to do. Not the phone set, the central box. Or do you want to re initialize the entire system? If so you will have to reconfigure everything. Is that what you really want to do?
You probably got something wrong with the drive itself.
The computer would need to be opened to find out what is causing this to reboot when a dic is inserted.
or you might have a nice lovely virus that has taken control over the system and i have seen this happened before thus you would need to recover.
1. boot the computer in SAFE mode
2. put in the disc (does it reboot?)
Deepening how you answer question number two is where your problem relies.
if it does not reboot, We are talking recovery.
if it does reboot you might have something physically wroung with the drive unit.
please do not shoot the messenger i am not there so its hard from my POV
Save work if it's in jeopardy. If your PC has frozen, attempt to save your data before rebooting your machine. Rebooting will almost certainly cause data loss. Attempt to save your data to your hard drive, diskette or portable media.
Determine the steps your operating system has to go through to reboot. Some operating systems allow you to press Control, Alt and Delete to reboot the PC. Others require different commands. However, if the operating system and software are frozen, you may use the power button on the machine or the power strip.
Use the power switch if necessary. If you cannot access the shutdown feature of the operating system and the relevant buttons still won't allow for a reboot, press and hold the power button on the PC. Allow the machine to rest for a few seconds, then power back on.
Wait for the power-on self-test. Allow the PC to check its components thoroughly through the initial boot screens that will appear.
Resume working. Log back into the machine and continue to work.
You will need to do more trouble shooting. If you can, boot into safe mode and see if system reboots. If it does boot into the bios and see if it reboots there.
If system reboots in all modes then you have a hardware problem and will need to be serviced. However if it does not reboot in the bios then there is a good chance that some part of your windows system is corrupted.
