Toshiba satellite C15 C1310 window 10 says to reboot laptop has no disk player how do I reboot


Reboot means to start up the computer operating system from scratch. This can be accomplished by shutting down the machine using the power button and turning the computer back on; or by clicking on the power icon and choosing restart. No disk player would be involved in a reboot action.

Computer keeps shutting off every five minutes or so


Computer may be shutting od due to following reasons:

Computer Virus
There are higher chances of a computer shutting down due to the interference of a computer virus. The virus gets into the computer and fiddles with crucial sections of the operating system, which may cause the system to shut down automatically. You need to install a good antivirus software and get the computer scanned thoroughly for any malware and viruses. Also see to it that the operating system and all hardware drivers are updated.

Power Supply
The computer power supply unit is an equipment that is installed in the cabinet to provide power to the system for operation. Your computer can shut down, if there is not enough power supplied to it for handling the programs running. If you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available. Another reason can be overheating of the power supply. After the power supply is used for a substantial period of time, there is a possibility of dust getting collected inside it. And this may cause it to overheat, resulting in the shutdown of the desktop computer. If the power supply is at fault, you may need to get a new one installed.

Overheating of the Motherboard and the Processor
As with the case of dust getting collected in the power supply, the computer motherboard and the processor can also collect dust, which may be the reason for their overheating. This may also be one of the reasons why your computer keeps shutting down and restarting. You need to open the computer cabinet and clean the dust off the computer parts. The CPU board and the processor can also overheat because of many applications running. If this is the case, then it is suggested to keep the running of applications as less as possible or increase the size of Random Access Memory (RAM). Bad capacitors on the motherboard is also one of the reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down very often.

The 'Automatically Restart' Setting
If you are using Windows XP operating system, there is a setting that indicates the computer to reboot if it detects an error in the system's operation. In order to check if this is the problem, click on 'Start' and 'Control Panel', then select 'Performance and Maintenance'. Click on 'System', then the 'Advanced' option, and select 'Settings' from the 'Startup and Recovery' section. You will find an 'Automatically restart' option, which you need to uncheck for preventing the system from rebooting. Read more on computer keeps restarting on its own.

These were the possible reasons, why your computer keeps shutting down and rebooting. You also need to check if the power cables are properly connected to the cabinet and to the UPS, as loose connections can also be a reason for system shutdown. The most common cause of the computer getting shut down or restarted is due to overheating of the power supply and other internal computer parts.

I would like to reboot my emachine desk top computer but when i put the cd that comes with it its just giving me the user guide menu but not how to reboot the computer


hi
Reboot is nothing but restart. So if you wish to reboot your computer then just shut it down and restart it. You don't need any CD for that.

If your system isn't shutting down, you can turn it off directly. But it is not recommended to do often, as it could damage your Windows and may also damage your hard drive.
However, yes, if you want to reinstall the Windows then you would require the CD. If this is the case then please let me know through comment, else rate.
Thanks.

TravelMate 3260-4542 ......getting message that system will shut down and to save all data.....#Acer-1240D29348. I close and save everything. Reboot. Work fine for a few minutes or so, and get message...


It sounds like the battery may be going bad, not holding a charge anymore, or the processor may be overheating and shutting itself down as a precaution. Some BIOS may have a temp reading if you enter the bios at boot up, usually by pressing del key or F1 key, it should tell you at reboot, right at the first second or two after power is turned on "press del key to enter setup" or something similar.
If your BIOS does not have a temp readout, you can download freeware temp reading tools from cnet.com.
Make sure that your fan is blowing out the port in the back and that it is not obstructed by something.
If it is none of these, you may have a virus, In which case, try the following:
While the system is booting --before the xp2_bing.gif logo shows, hold down the F8 key. This will bring up a menu. Choose "start windows in safe mode with networking".
The os will start in safe mode. run a virus scan, defrag and scandisk, then restart the system. If is still wont run normally, do the same thing then run a registry fixing program such as uniblue registrybooster, then reboot2_bing.gif. If it still won't run right, you may want to reinstall the OS and see if that works. If reinstalling the OS after formating the drive doesn't fix it, it is definitely a hardware problem. good luck.
PLEASE RATE THIS ADVICE WITH SOME THUMBS UP!!!

I want to reboot my computer acer. How can I do that


Reboot basically means to "restart" the computer. You have a soft reboot which means hitting the reset button on the front of the computer or going to the start, shut down, restart computer. A hard reboot is shutting the system off completely and then turning it back on.

My computer won't shut down it just keeps restarting


The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know

Window shut down automatically and restart, then shut down again... It happened after a window update yesterday lunch time.


Recovery SettingsOne of the things that is quite different about Windows XP compared to Windows 9x (9x is shorthand for Windows 95, Windows 98, and Windows Me in all their various versions), is that one can control how it responds to certain critical errors—those that cause the infamous Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). In Windows XP, the default setting is for the computer to reboot automatically when a fatal error occurs. If that fatal error only occurs when you're shutting down, the system reboots automatically.
If you haven't changed any of the system failure settings, you should be able to see the error by looking in the Event Log. But a better long-term solution is to turn off the automatic reboot so you can actually see the error when it happens—chances are it will tell you enough about itself to let you troubleshoot further. To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
Click the Advanced tab.
3.
Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.
4.
Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.
5.
Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.
Now when you go to shut down and a fatal error occurs, you'll at least see it and it won't cause an automatic reboot. You still have to sort out what's causing the problem, but that gets us to the next section quite nicely.
