Computer reboots constantly

You are probably getting a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD,) but the PC is restarting too fast to read it.
turn it on and after the first re-start, press [F8] about 3 times every 2 seconds, (do NOT just hold it down.)

When successful, the Advanced Boot Options Menu will appear, (if it did not, then you missed it, keep trying.) Using the Arrow-up and Arrow-down keys highlight the option that says :
"Disable Automatic restart on system failure"

This will be valid for only 1 boot, then it will go back to constant looping, (unless you do the above again lol.)

When it BSODs you need to write-down the Stop Error displayed along with any file(s)-named to be causing the error.

A common one is 0x000000D1 Driver IRQ not less than or equal

This is a device driver error....see if you can boot into one of the Safe Mode options on that Advanced boot options menu. If you CAN, then use System Restore to go back to a day BEFORE the problem began. [note: if you have a virus, the problem will likely return.]

System restore disc 1 erased & overwrote hard drive. Second disc won't start. All i get is a lengthy paragraph that boils down to : MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE. PXE M0F: EXITING PXE ROM.\r\n ...

Your computer is using the network-connection to try to connect a "network boot server", to try to load a bootable image across the network.

The 'MEDIA TEST FAILURE, CHECK CABLE' is the error-message when no "network boot server" responds to a "network boot request".

The 'EXITING PXE ROM' message is the exit from the P(re) (e)X(ecution) E(nvironment) part of the R(ead) O(nly) M(emory) inside your computer, since the "network boot" did not proceed.

So, insert "Restore Disk #1" and restart your computer, and FORCE it to "boot" from the CD-ROM device -- not from the disk-drive. When prompted, insert "Restore Disk #2" to continue the reinstallation of Windows. When prompted, remove the disk from the CD-ROM device, and restart your computer.

Note that it's also possible that your disk-drive is "dying" -- any attempts to install Windows on it have FAILED. Thus, any time to "boot" from those "not-written" files will cause problems.

Automatic restart my laptop.Windows vista


If you are able to boot the computer in safe mode, you can disable the Automatic Restart from the Control Panel.

Open Control Panel.

Click on the System and Maintenance link.

If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link.

Click on the System link.

In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.

Locate the Start up and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.

In the Start up and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.

Click OK in the Start up and Recovery window.

Click OK in the System Properties window.

You can now close the System window.

From now on, when a problem causes a BSOD or another major error that halts the system, the PC will not automatically reboot. Rebooting manually will be necessary.

If you're unable to fully start Windows Vista due to a Blue Screen of Death error, you won't be able to disable the automatic restart on system failure option as described in the steps above.

Try the steps below:

Just before the Windows Vista splash screen shown above appears, or just before your PC automatically restarts, press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options.

You should now see the Advanced Boot Options screen.

Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, highlight Disable automatic restart on system failure and press the Enter key.

After disabling the automatic restart on system failure option, Windows Vista might continue to load. Whether or not it does depends on what kind of Blue Screen of Death or other problem Windows Vista is experiencing.

Since you disabled the automatic restart on system failure, Windows Vista will no longer force a restart when it encounters a Blue Screen of Death.

Now that you have the STOP Code associated with the Blue Screen of Death, you can troubleshoot the problem:

The following is the list of BSOD error codes with troubleshooting, you can find the troubleshooting steps using the error codes in the MS website also..

I can not access my computer after imminent failure message

> imminent failure message ... cannot access

Bad luck that the 'imminent' failure was _SO_ soon followed by _complete_ failure.

Buy a new disk-drive. Disconnect the old disk-drive.
Install Windows to the new disk-drive.
Reconnect the old disk-drive, as a 'slave' disk-drive, and hope that you can access the files on it, even though you could no longer 'boot' Windows from it.

Replaced battery problem continuues comp.won't come on. A quick flash of awakeness but nothing . Other times we get a sustained response thumping noise and then nothing.

Pardon for the quip on semantics, but thumping seems a bit... well... drastic. A rattle could indicate one thing and a constant/intermittent clicking (of sorts) indicates a different problem.

A kind of rattle or I suppose a 'throbbing' could indicate that your cd/dvd drive is out of balance (this would only be obvious if there were a disk in the drive and usually immediately apparent when trying to boot up), but this doesn't usually keep the computer from booting to a POST screen.

Another indication of this 'throbbing' could be that your cooling fan has lint or other debris lodged in it. This would definitley keep the computer from booting as several computers won't boot (desktops as well) unless some kind of rotation is recorded as coming off of that particular fan.

If this happens to be the case, I would recommend that the laptop be professionally cleaned as simply trying to use compressed air would just ram the debris in harder. So complete dis-assembly is the only way to get to the obstruction.

If the noise is more like a rattle (constant or intermittent) then there is a likelihood that your hard drive is about to completely fail. Again, this would be more identifiable within Windows as there is a new software alert that pops up warning you about such a failure.

Redundantly, this by itself wouldn't keep the computer from at least booting to a POST screen and possibly into some kind of error message.

The last thing I would recommend is to try powering the system up with the AC adapter alone and see if the same symptoms occur. If so, there is obviously more deeper routed issues. The worst being a catastrophic motherboard failure.

Hope this helps...

Windows live quicktime control host failures

Since the quicktime would not update properly, you probably have a bad install of it, so you'll also have a bad uninstall. Restart your computer with the Windows disk in the CD. When it asks you to press a key to boot from CD, press the space bar (or any other key). Let the files set up, then when it asks you to press "R" to repair the system, press that, and let the system do a repair from the original disk. That should fix the system.
