As my knowledge if the computer restarting by themselves always there are some error occured in this one area possibility :

1. error in software
2. error in hardware
3. error by virus infected
4. operating system issue

BUT :).. if u get this trouble after take some advennture in networld/network.. i suggest u computer ar sugessted with "blaster virus" the virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted. so the best way is update your security first
that is the first step

the second :i suggest u to run your computer in safe mode wait for several minutes if not reboot while running safe mode follow this step :

  1. From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
  2. Click the Properties option.
  3. In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
  4. In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
  6. Click Ok.
if still rebooting in safe mode there the issue is likely not software related but something else

the third :hardware devices that are not installed properly in the computer can also cause random reboots. Make sure all the cables and expansion cards are connected properly to the computer. The best way to determine this is to disconnect and reconnect all cables and expansion cards.

If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case please try the below steps.
  1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting. If you are not familiar with how to enter CMOS please read through document CH000192.
  2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the com sit
hope u luck

When I try to view a video online, Realplayer tries to install on my computer, but it's already the newest version. So I can't watch the video. What's up?


We'll to override this you could download adobe flash player which will then ask to go default player.adobe usually has the best updated codecs for online browsing.you need at least 2gb memory to cope with hd playback and make sure all other running programs are shut down whilst online browsing videos.if you are watching stuff on computer a good all rounder which is also free is GOM player.plays just about everything without stutter or choppy playback.

My computer shuts down without any warning at all. The problem has occurred 4 times this week when charger is unplugged but power icon still shows me approximately 50% battery. Sometimes computer lets me...


Check you power settings. It is possible that it is set to shut down at 50% battery power.

If it is overheating, that too will cause a shutdown. What is happening at the time of shut down? Are the vents on the laptop being blocked in any way?

I have a lexmark 1270 ( that's what it says on the printer) and the printer is on, and I go to print and nothing happens...


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot the pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Try to print again.
It could also be that the Print Spooler service on your computer has stopped. Please follow the steps below to fix the problem:



1. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET STOP SPOOLER" (this will stop the print spooler service)

2. Browse to your windows\system32\spool\PRINTERS\ folder. You should see files there ending in .SPL and .SHD created around the time you tried to print - delete these files.

3. Browse to Start -> Run... and type in "NET START SPOOLER" (this will restart the print spooler service)

4. Double click the printer icon in the lower-right corner of your taskbar to examine your print job queue and browse to View -> Refresh.

3 red lights on xbox 360 tryed rebooting, unpugging everything and rebooting, also lying down and rebooting, taking fan off and rebooting still nothing happening . . .please help it was working 6 hours ago...


Unfortunately the Xbox 360 will need to be professionally repaired.
These red light errors usually happen with little warning. Sometimes you may see strange colors or it will start to freeze, however often times it strikes without warning.
The main cause of the red light errors is overheating. In the future try to keep the console in a well ventilated area and always play with the console standing upright rather than laying flat. When the Xbox 360 lays flat the entire bottom surface area gets very little air flow, causing the console to run much hotter than if it is upright.
If your warranty is up or you just don't feel like dealing with Microsoft; the company I work for GATpro Repairs offers a flat rate repair service. We even pay for return shipping. Let me know if you have any further questions.
Good Luck!

Connected to wireless network, but cant browse internet.


I think there might be lost in the packet sending.
You said the PC is still connected to the network but not able to go online.
Is there any other wireless computer which is able to go online wirelessly and working fine.
If yes then try to uninstall and reinstall the adapter.
If not then check the router wireless settings.

My computer reboots without warning at different intervals


this problem occurs if your computers cooling is not as its necessary to be.try useing it with an open cabinet and see if the problem persists. if the problem still persists remve ur CPU fan and place some heat sink fluid and place it back on the cpu. then all your problems should be gone.
use a good antivirus to check for any viruses before this(just in case)

My computer shuts down in the middle of the game (Toontown)


Try to uninstall the program and reinstall it. Normally, this happens due to insufficient memory resources like video memory is insufficient and the system RAM.

Connection interuptted wen playing online!


I am guessing the PS3 is hooked up through a router, either wired or wirelessly. You need to browse the router setup for the IP address of the PS3, then put the IP of the PS3 into the DMZ, also in the router setup. This should clear up any connection problems

Computer Screen turns black, Computer still runs.


Brownsterz,

This sounds to me like the game, caused a fault in your video driver that somehow adjusted your resolution/refresh rate to something beyond your monitors range.

If this is the case we can fix it. Restart your computer just after the logo screen push <F8> which should bring up the startup options for Windows. Select "Start in safe mode" Once up in safe mode adjust the "Display settings" to a more modest resolution either 1024 X 768 or 800 X 600 ( don't worry this is just temporary)

Then restart the system and this time it should let you get into your desktop without the "Black out".

Now go to AMD.com and go through their support page to find the latest drivers for your ATI card (AMD bought ATI a while back) download and install these drivers. then after the reboot you should be all set to change your display back to what your comfort levels are.

If this gets you back to normal, then you had a driver conflict error that corrupted your video cards driver. Try playing the game again, if you get the same symptoms AGAIN then reduce the resolution that the game runs at and/or turn down or off antialiasing / anisotropic filtering and that should reduce the odds of it reoccuring.

If this procedure doesn't help you, please comment back with your results and I will figure out what else went wrong.

Thanks Dave
