Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
I have windows vista on my desk top p.c. The p.c. keeps rebooting itself. I tried doing a system restore but the computer won't complete it.
My thoughts are that you may have a bad sector on the hard drive and even though you run the restore this issue needs to be dealt with first.
My thoughts is that if you know what type of hard drive is in the PC: 1) SATA or 2) IDE
is to get on to Western Digital's web site and download and burn a copy of their 'Data Lifeguard Tools'
1) start the PC up with this disk,
2) then fix the disk with this software and
3) then use your Vista disk to reload a fresh copy of the OS back on to the drive and you will be fine.
