Re: my system does not startup ....

Did you recently change setting in Bios?
Like, try to increase Performance, more aggressive settings to the Processor, or to memory?
Sounds like you did.

How to Update Your BIOS

By Patrick Miller, PCWorld

  • Check your BIOS version, without restarting your PC, by using msinfo32.exe (as described in the text).187437-versioncheck_original.jpgThe easiest way to find your BIOS version is to open up the System Information app in Windows--just type msinfo32 into the search bar (for Windows 7/Vista) or the Run box (XP), and clickSystem Summary; your BIOS version should now show up on the right under your processor speed. Record your version number (and the date that appears afterwards, if applicable).

    Step 2: Check your PC/motherboard manufacturer\'s Website for BIOS updates.

    Most PC manufacturers handle BIOS updates based on your specific line and model, so head over to your manufacturer\'s support page and check its listings for your PC, because if you download and install a BIOS intended for a different model, your PC probably won\'t work (although most BIOS updaters are smart enough to notice if you try to install them on the wrong hardware). If there is a BIOS update file available, grab it--along with any documentation it comes with, because often warnings and specific instructions are contained in the Read Me docs.

    Those of you who assembled your PC yourself will need to look for BIOS updates from your motherboard manufacturer\'s Website. If you don\'t remember your motherboard\'s model number, you can look it up without opening up the case by downloading and running CPU-Z and clicking on the Mainboard tab.

    Step 3: Read the included documentation.

    Your PC\'s BIOS handles a lot of the nuts and bolts ISO Recorder for Windows XP or the version for Windows 7/Vista) to create a BIOS update CD.Other systems will have you copy a few files to your bootable disk, restart, and open up the BIOS during startup (typically by pressing a specified key for setup options), and change the boot order so your system looks for a bootable USB drive or CD before loading the OS from your hard drive.

EP-3VSA2 - based on PC brakes operation with BSoD randomly: BSoD may occurs sometimes during Windows startup and sometimes seconds after an hour or two of operation. What is the matter?

Remove all USB attached devices.

You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).
Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.

Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time.

Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost.

Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

What may be the problem of my pc because it always restart?

You need to get the exact error message to determine the cause of your system restarting. Then post again with the error message that will appear.

If you're using Windows XP:
  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows XP by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open System.
    Note: In Microsoft Windows XP, depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the System icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that says Switch to Classic View.
  3. In the System Properties window, click on the Advanced tab.
  4. Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
  5. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
  6. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
  7. Click OK in the System Properties window.
  8. 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 using Vista/7:
  1. Click on Start and then Control Panel.
    Tip: In a hurry? Type system in the search box after clicking Start. Choose System from the list of results and then skip to Step 4.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link.
    Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Simply double-click on the System icon and proceed to Step 4.
  3. Click on the System link.
  4. In the task pane on the left, click the Advanced system settings link.
  5. Locate the Startup and Recovery area and click on the Settings button.
  6. In the Startup and Recovery window, locate and uncheck the check box next to Automatically restart.
  7. Click OK in the Startup and Recovery window.
  8. Click OK in the System Properties window.
  9. You can now close the System window.
  10. 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.

HP Desktop PC, won't boot even under safe mode

if the system was able to enter the desktop and restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or reinstall windows.

but if it didn't enter the OS desktop...cause might be the boot loader or MBR is damage..

worth a try:

Run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

BOOTCFG /rebuild

6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

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.
