Re: pc restarting.


If your PC (and I will assume a desktop) restarts without going into a dump or blue screen of death (BSOD), it is possible that you have a hardware fault. The possibilities could be:
1. defective capacitors near the CPU.They should be visually checked for any swelling, dielectric leakage or anything out of the ordinary. If the top is bulging, then they have overheated;
2. defective/underrated power supply; and/or
3. defective (or slow) CPU fan (or sometimes that of the video card).

In some instances, some virus have been known to cause a forced restart.

Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with brand/model of your PC/motherboard or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

You may have a virus or an update that didn't install

You did not say which OS you are using so here is the answer using Windows 7

Remove any DVDs or USB storage devices from your computer, then restart the computer.
When you start the machine, continually keep tapping the "F8" key until the logo disappears. The Advanced Boot Options screen appears.
Press the down arrow until you have highlighted the "Safe Mode" item. Press the "Enter" key to boot Windows into safe mode.
Open Search box. In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore.
Follow the steps in the wizard to choose a restore point and restore your computer.

Pc restarts using wifi

Go into "Safe Mode" and un-install the WiFi drivers. Then remove the drivers completely using a program such as CCleaner. when you have done this. try and re- install the WiFi drivers from a known good source. if the problem persists you would seem to have a WLAN hardware problem. You could use DriverPack Solutions for your drivers. But I would suggest installing them with the computer in "Safe Mode".

The blue screen is just there it wont go to the menu

If you have done any updates or changed anythng recently,ie;change of cables, resoltion etc. Try a shut down using power button on tower and unplug. Plug back in and start in safe mode. Click "start" find "control panel", click on that to open. Find "device Manager", right click on that and open. Click on the box with + next to dispaly adaptors. You will get a drop down of you devices. Right click on the one you use and you should see "disable", if you see "enable" click on that. Click on the box with+ next to monitor. You should see a drop down ith your monitors.Right click on the one you want and, again you should see "disable" if you see "enable" click n that and exit. If either of those two things showed enable when you checked them and you enabled them you probably fixed your problem. Now restart your system normally. If it doesn't come back, shut down at front of computer and restart in "safe mode" again wait for widow to come up about system restore, now this is only if you have made recent changes o updates, Click on what is system restore and another window will come up. Read down until you see "start system restore" and click on it. This will take a couple of minutes. A window will come up and click on start restore. Your computer will perform restore and restart on it's own. After it restarts, give it a couple of minutes tillyou see a window with "system restore complete".

Recently my mother bought a new PC with spec: Intel G31-M7 Intel Dual Core E4500 2.7GHz 2GB RAM 500GB HD The problem is that it keep on restarting randomly. It even restarted itself while in safe mode...

The only thing that would cause a restart in the BIOS is a hardware fault - most likely the power source is too weak. But you should also check the temperature of the processor from the the BIOS besides the voltages.

Help please - Asus IS7 board, downloaded a chipset driver - should'nt have, since then computer starts, might go through to windows, might not, then computer goes to what seems to be half power, fans...

Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start
Click Control Panel
Click Classic View
Click System
Click Hardware
Click Device Manager
Expand each branch of the hardware-tree, and remove all the components installed by that "chipset-driver".
Keep doing them all, and then restart your computer.
Windows should re-detect your hardware, and load the correct drivers.

If that fails:
Restart your computer.
Press F8 repeatedly until the Windows "boot menu" (black-and-white) is visible.
Select "Safe Mode".
Click Start and navigate to "System Restore".
Choose a check-point dated at a date/time before your screw-up.
Choose "restore" to that date/time.
Follow the on-screen directions.

Asus P5Rd1-vm problems restarting

That computer only works with a PS2 keyboard at powerup.

You could check the bios to see if there is a setting to disable the PS2 adaptor but I have never come across one.

Try running Windows in safe mode by pressing F8 at the beginning of the reboot process and select safe mode. Once windows is up, restart the machine.

If you get the same results while trying to get into safe mode, you may have to restore Windows.
