Re: restarting my computer automatic

Check that the cooling fans inside are working properly.  Computer will do that if it is overheating. 


shut down, unplug power cord, open case, use canned air and blow out all dust bunnies.  Pay special attention to the CPU cooling fins. Plug power back in, boot up and watch the fans.  Do they all spin up? and keep spinning? Keep hands out of the case when it's powered up.

Find a touchscreen driver for Windows 8.1

It should. Maybe the driver is present but not working. Go to the Device Manager and remove the driver. Restart, and it should reload. It is also possible that your anti-virus is blocking it. Disable your antivirus and unplug the USB, wait 10 seconds and plug it back in. Don't start any web browser while you antivirus is off, and don't leave it off for long.

Computer required restarting due to problems with mouse. Once computer was restarted gateway monitor would not work

Not enough information. Please describe any monitor activity when
you turn it on, do this while the computer is still off, unplug monitor, then
plug back in. It should start automatically, then show the gateway logo, then
go blank for several seconds, then show no input signal box, then shut down on its
own. If it fails to do this it is probably that the power printed circuit board
is failing, not delivering the proper power to the main board and/or the back
lamps. One can have this board repaired inexpensively by a qualified electronic

Email me at

and we may be able to get your unit working properly again.

Have it repaired soon to avoid additional component failures

My screen says auto configure when on Please Help

It's perfectly "normal" -- your LCD monitor is adjusting itself, automatically, to the output from your computer's video-card
(e.g., 800 by 600 by 60 Hertz).

Restart your computer in "Safe Mode", and reset the display-resolution to 800 by 600 by 60 Hertz. Then, restart,
and then everything will be OK. When it is, try to increase the resolution, incrementally.

Sir, my operating system is xp, but this system has been restarting from since 3 months.. i dont knw what is problem

When your computer repeatedly restarts itself it's usually a virus, or some form of bad adware and/or spyware. Run a good virus scan, I recommend McAfee and I beleive the website has a free online scanner and a free trial offer. McAfee is capable of detecting viruses, adware and spyware.

Need help with a way to get viruses off computer

Get avast home from

install the home version and during the install it will ask you to perform a boot time antivirus scan,
select yes and restart the computer when the setup is complete, on start up the antivirus program will scan your whole computer for viruses and if it finds any it will ask you to delete, rename or move. I suggest you delete them all. The scan may take a hour or more you may want to be near the computer as it will ask for your permission to delete files, unless you set Delete all. it will show a option for that..

This is the first thing I suggest for you, if you need more help drop me a comment and lets look into it!

Thank you
