We have 9 of the machines at work and we had the same problem withabout seven of them. To get it to work again just reseat the processor and memory. The case is very simple to take apart. Once you get the cover off just remove the front panel (3 clips) and then there is a screw near the end of the DVD drive. Unscrew the screw and the gently pull the drives out. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem with this system. The problem is heat. If you notice when the system goes to vista log in the fans are running at high speed then the system shuts down. To fix this problem you must not click on anything until the fans slow down. you need to click on control panel then click on system and maintenace then click on power options. you will see High performance click on change plan settings. Now click on Change Advance Power Settings. Now Scroll down to Processor Power Management Now click on the + an you will see min and max processor state change the value to 45% for both for now. This will slow the Processor from running to hot for now so you can run your system. Vista has an update that corrects this problem when you fully update your system you will see a little sluggish perfomance just go back and change the min and max processor state to 85 or 90% and your good to go. When you are clicking on these folders listen to your fans you have to be careful to do this slowly or your system will shut down.

Sounds likehardware faiure...

I can tell you how we can try fixing it but it would void any warrenty you have..The choice isyurs if you want to try the under method or returnit to the company..

1.) Unplug the system
2.) remvoe the case(open it up)
3.) there is a battery on the main bpoard abt the size of a nickle, remove it
4.) hit the power button 7 times
5.) replace the batter and try booting it
6.) you might need to do a full format and then install vista..

If that fails its like;ly that your mainboard or memory is damaged or defective..

This could be either a software or a hardware problem. the reason it works in safemode is because safemode does not initiate some on the drivers by recovery with recovery cd does. I recommend that you formatt your harddrive completely then install a fresh copy of your vista operating system. then install the correct device drivers (download from the manufactures website if you have doubts) to your system 1 by 1, restarting the system after each driver installation. this should work and if the problem persists at least you will be able to identfy which device is giving you a problem as it will restart itself again after you install the driver for that device.

It could be driver problem. But if even almost all mode of boot doesn't help. Your options are repair, restore to factory settings or reinstalls depends on the features your system has for recovery. In old ways we just reformat it and reinstall all, backup cd always on standby.

If harddrive has a fault like many bad sector. We replace the drive.

As for your other system I will say that sometimes updates are not helpful enough. In old days of xp we are not updating, commonly we just update antivirus definitions. We experienced slow down and system crashes. We just install some enhancement software in exchange for some features of xp.

If I miss something just post a comment.

Windows failed 2 restart

A system restore would correct the problem perhaps upon boot try f8 I believe or f2 I forget with vista and try booting in safe mode, if windows can't correct itself reload.
