When you first turn it on hit F8. As soon as you hit the on button start tapping F8. Do not wait or you will miss it.
Boot menu will appear. Choose SAFE MODE with networking if you want to get on the internet also. Otherwise choose SAFEMODE.

I restored T5048, but now it shuts down and restarts non stop ?


Shuts down and restarts the boot process automatically continuously. Try turning it off, then hit the power button and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE Mode. Scroll down and see if you see an option to Cancel or Stop automatic restart on system failure. If you do click that and try rebooting your machine. It should tell you what exactly is the problem so you can read it without it rebooting all the time.

If it's that you need a CMOS battery you're in luck. Just turn the computer off, remove the case, sit the computer on it's side, get a flashlight and look inside for a battery about the size of a nickel. Normally the size of the battery is CR2032 which can be purchased at Walmart or you local grocery or drug store for $5.00. Just use a small flat head screw driver to remove the old battery and pop in a new one.

Disabling reboot on failure


The default is for automatic restarts which does not let you see the error message. Power off your computer, turn it on; immediately hit F8 several times a SECOND; You'll get a screen that will have a number of options, one of which is turn off automatic restart. Check that.
Now you will get a "blue screen" message that will help diagnose the real problem.

My computer msi brand is automatically restarting and some problem are appear but i cant read becouse it is continusly restarting...i rem the time when im not in my mood and keep badtrip to my computer so...


You have two options to remedy the problem. You really need to access the computer in Safe Mode and view the System Logs to determine the offending piece of hardware or software or virus. But your real question is how to stop the reboot. Use the F8 Key during boot. Right after you turn the computer on, start hitting the F8 Key. The Windows Boot MEnu will appear. at this point you can do one of two things to try to fix the problem. You can enter the computer in Safe Mode which load Windows with only the minimal necessary hardware and software drivers.If you want to see the error message, choose option 8 which tells the computer not to automatically restart after an error. This will enable you to determine the error message on the screen and prevent the system from just going through an endless loop of starting, erroring-out and restarting..

F8 (during boot) Holding F8 when booting displays the Windows Boot Menu
SHIFT (during boot) Holding SHIFT down when booting forces Windows into Safe Mode

Let me know if I can be of any other assistance to you

Automatic restart my laptop.Windows vista


Hi,

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..

Keep getting checkpoint errors, and have changed Sys Battery , reset Bios and when i boot it ,it goes to Dell logo and keeps trying to reboot. Windows will not load.


Try going to the BIOS and see if it reboots from there. If it does, then it is most probably a hardware problem. You can try re-seating the memory modules and If you have multiple modules, try them one at a time.
If it does not reboot while you are in the BIOS, then the problem lies on Windows. Get your DELL Restore CD or your Operating System CD and insert it to the CD-ROM drive. Reboot the computer and press F12 while seeing the Dell logo, that should give you the options to boot to CD-ROM. It will give you a quick prompt of "press any key to boot to cd..". Make sure you press the space bar during this time to initiate the boot from CD-ROM.
Once the Windows Setup loads, Choose "Recovery Console" to repair your computer. Just choose the installation you would like to repair (normally it's number 1) then it will ask you for the administrator password. By default, the password is blank, but if you set a password for admin then use that password.
Once you get to the prompt, Type this command. "CHKDSK /R" (without the quotes). It will initiate the repair for your OS. This might take an hour or so. Just wait for it to finish and it will automatically reboot your computer. Let the computer computer reboot normally. You should be able to get to your normal windows screen back.
Good Luck.

My PC will reboot automatically when I am in the middle of reading email, working on pictures or just surffing the web. Sometimes it will reboot up to three or four times when I first turn it on in the...


This is caused by a bluescreen or overheating. To see if its a bluescreen, fress f8 on boot and select disable automatic restart on system failure, and wait for it to reboot. This time, it might show a blue screen with white letters. Then you know its an issue with your operating system.

Just spent $440 to fix my computer and it just keeps rebooting all the time, just had service pack 2 installed and brand new hard drive, please help me I'm ready to throw it down the stairs


Your computer is probably encountering an error and Automatically re-booting.
In order to see what the error is, you must disable Automatic Restart. (This step will only help diagnose your problem - not solve it.)
If this is XP - (and you can keep it alive for a minute) - you want to disable Automatic Restart

Right-click on My Computer and choose Properties; then Advanced tab - at the bottom choose Settings for Startup & Recovery.
UN-check the box that says Automatic Restart - then reboot

After that step, your computer will probably give you an error message or Blue Screen instead of re-booting.
THEN yoiu can start Googling for answers or report the error back here.

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
