This sounds like a heat related issue.
Are you sure that the CPU fan is running and that the vent ducts are all clear?
You maye be able to get it cleaned out with a can of compressed air.
Is the computer new? If so, then it is probably not dust, but if it is more than a couple of years old, then that is probably the problem.

Troubleshoot motherboard


It's hard to do much testing, but I'd look for capacitors that are bulged or leaking. badcaps.net has way more information than you'd ever want to know about this problem

Pull everything out and reseat it, see if it works.

After that, I'd pull everything out but the motherboard, one stick of known good memory, and the video card. Also disconnect everything from the back but the keyboard and monitor. Clear CMOS using the correct jumper.
Boot up to the cannot boot prompt and let it sit for a while (15 minutes or so). Do a ctrl-alt-del and see if it reboots correctly.

Next, add in just the cdrom and boot off of it until it fails (win xp setup) Then Ctrl-alt-del and make sure it works a second time.

Now, add your hard drive and try to install. If it works, shut down, add one card at a tie back in, and test each time.
Then start adding in your usb devices, then network cabling, etc etc.

If you can, try a known good power supply.

Either you'll find the part that is causing the problem, or you'll know it's most likely your motherboard.

I cannot logon to my PC


Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.

Dlink router, Dell laptop - no connectivity - won't renew IP


resetting netsh was a good start. I would suggest starting with pulling the power on the router for about 5 to 10 minutes and then plugging it back in. give it a couple of minutes to reconnect to the modem and then try connecting to it again wirelessly. I had an issue with my dlink gigabit that stumped me and a cold reboot was the only thing that worked

Linksys WMP300N Endless Bootup Loop


Disable or uninstall the Linksys software that manages and monitors the connection.

Use instead the Microsoft Windows Wireless configuration utility.

That's what I did and didn't get problem after.
