Check to see if there are any keys stuck/depressed.
If so, use a paperclip and fit it underneath the key and gently pry the end that is stuck.

Make sure the laptop is off before attempting this.
Observe where the boot process ends and starts over.

In most cases, this will give an indication where the problem occurs.
If the laptop reboots early on in the process, for example when it is detecting the hard drive, chances are good it is a hardware issue.

If the reboot occurs further along in the process, like when it is loading operating system files, there may be an issue with operating system software.

Test all power and data leads that attach to your hard drive SATA
the leads from your (motherboard to your hard drive) make sure they have a secure dust free connections and are not faulty

Make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd have secure connections and are not faulty.

even something as small as faulty fan lead can cause you problems

Motherboard and a hard drive any leads between them will fail before your motherboard or your hard drive check all power and data leads make sure they are securely seated even the cd/dvd drives need to have current go through make sure these devices are working

Check your computer ram modules for secure dust free seating you might even remove the ram modules to check for dirt on modules and in the module socket and cmos battery make sure it has charge and they are dust free and securely seated some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in

Capacitors look like small metallic canisters and they are found in many different computer components including computer monitors, computer motherboards, video cards, power supplies and a variety of other consumer products.

A bad capacitor can cause a variety of computer problems, but if you can identify the faulty capacitor you may be able to replace it and save your computer.
Capacitor Capacitors, sometimes also called condensers, are used to store energy in an electric field.
In the context of computing, capacitors are used to block the direct current being circulated around the motherboard.

A typical capacitor should last up to 15 years, but some computer manufacturers use substandard capacitors resulting in shorter lifetimes.
Computer Problems

When a capacitor has gone bad on a computer you may experience a large range of problems. The computer may have trouble booting up, or it may shut down without notice after running for only a short period of time.

The most common problems associated with faulty capacitors are that they cause unexpected computer crashes and general reliability issues ranging from read/write issues to distorted screen images.

Identifying a Bad Capacitor

To identify a bad capacitor you will need to open your computer case and locate the capacitors on your motherboard.

A bad capacitor may exhibit swelling at the top or the base of the capacitor or it may sit at an awkward angle with the motherboard, so compare the various capacitors in your computer in terms of size and placement.

Additionally, a bad capacitor may have a funny smell or it may have a brownish residue leaking from the top or the base.


Manufacturers claim that capacitors may go bad because a computer is not receiving enough power from a power supply, because of an overclocked processor or because a computer is operating in an environment with too much heat or humidity.

However, some capacitors prematurely fail due to faulty work on the part of the manufacturer.

If you have a bad capacitor be sure to do research as to the lifespan of other products made by your manufacturer.

My computer was left on as it always is. When i went back to it my windows had shut down and now it wont reload. it ask's me to start windows normal? or to start in safe mode or to start the last knows...

Seems that some Windows files got corrupted hence the Windows cannot load properly.
If you have a Windows installation CD, put that in start your machine and try to do a Windows repair rather than an installation.
If you don't have a Windows CD, but you have a restoration CD that came with the laptop, use that to restore your computer to the factory settings.
Thanks for using Fixya!

This is not too uncommon scorcher63.
From what you stated, when windows does start it only goes so far & than re-starts it's self, like loading in a loop. Than at times it loads the start up options.
For reasons unknown, your windows (startup files) are corrupted. Easyest way to fix this is. Put you windows CD in the cdrom, shut down the system. Start the PC & press the F8 key every 2 seconds. A boot menue will load. Use the up & down arror keys & choose the cdrom drive. You will see (to boot from cd press any key), press the space bar. The cdrom will startup. Windows will start to load. You want to repair windows. This option will re-install windows but will leave most of your personal data alone. Like My Documents your username. Some programs "may" need to be re-installed. After installation is complete remove the windows cd & shut off the PC. Start the Pc, windows should load. Run Windows Update. If you have a antivirus program please do a full system scan. Run windows Defrag program.
scorcher63, if you have more question just post them here.
