    How long has it been doing this ? Have you made any hardware or software changes? Do you have all the latest updates and patches for Windows? How hot is it where the computer is? Are your fans all running?

Most possible your computer is infected by virus.
Run your AntiVirus full-scanning.
Then do also online scanner, here:

If it still happened, right-click "myComputer" --> click manage --> event viewer --> application --> see if there is "Error" with cross sign in the right panel. Then, post it here....

Let me know the result

Sounds like over heating...check your fans, specifically the CPU fan to make sure they are running. if they are, reboot your computer into the BIOS (generally by tapping the delete key while the initial POST screen shows) and find the screen that tells you the running temp.
let us know the temp that it is running at.

It has crashed , and i need to do a system restart, all i get is a command prompt, can you help me ?


Try to restore your machine first to an earlier time by doing system restore on safe mode if you cant log in to the normal windows.

1. After restart keep pressing F8 or keep tapping F8 until Advance Boot Menu appear
2. Use arrow key to navigate then choose Safe Mode
3. Click Start button then choose All Programs
4. Click Accessories then choose System Tools
5. Click System Restore then follow the intruction on the window.

Your computer will automatically restart when system restore is finish

If this doesnt work then you need a Windows CD to reinstall you Windows again.


Hope This ill be helpful. Than you for using Fixya.

Unfortunately my problem is my computer always keep on restarting and cant go on straight to windows. operating system was Windows XP.


There's a setting buried in Windows XP that tells your computer to restart when a system error occurs. If you turn off that option, you may solve your automatic reboot problem.
  • Click Start, then open Control Panel
  • Click Performance and Maintenance
  • Click System
  • Click on the Advanced Tab
  • Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section
  • Uncheck Automatically Restart in the System failure section

    Restarting problem


    Looks something wrong installed with drivers or some hardware changes.

    You can try restarting the system in safe mode that can help you understand whether this one is due to new software/driver installed

    If unaware of the recent changes, you can restart the system and press F8 to wait for menu where you can select "Last Known Good Configuration" and hit enter to execute you choice. This might work for you.

    If nothing helps you can try repairing your system using winxp CD. Refer to the link below

    Umm... can't boot to windows at all so the program that was provided wont work, can't reinstall windows automatic disk eject on startup!


    Hi,

    Restart your computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, press the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears. If the menu does not appear, restart your computer and try again. Use the cursor keys on your keyboard (your mouse will not work) to select Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start.

    If you recently installed new hardware, shut down your computer and disconnect the hardware. Then, restart Windows XP and troubleshoot your hardware to get it working properly.

    Restart your computer and press F8 again. This time, choose Safe Mode and press ENTER. Windows XP attempts to start in Safe Mode, which does not automatically start programs and hardware, and displays very primitive graphics. If Windows XP starts successfully in Safe Mode, you can remove any programs or updates you have recently installed. Then, restart your computer normally.


    Good luck!
    And Thanks.

    Cant acess safe mode in windows xp, just cycles startup screens


    Here are some steps to use MSCONFIG to force your computer into SAFE MODE
    1. Click on Start and then Run.
    2. In the text box in the Run window, type msconfig and click OK. This will open the System Configuration Utility program.
      Note: Do not make changes in the System Configuration Utility other than those outlined here to avoid causing serious system issues. This utility controls a number of startup activities other than those involved with Safe Mode.
    3. Click on the BOOT.INI tab located at the top of the System Configuration Utility window.
    4. Check the checkbox next to /SAFEBOOT and click OK.
    5. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
    6. After the restart, the PC will automatically boot into Windows XP Safe Mode.
      Note: Windows XP will continue to boot into Safe Mode until the System Configuration Utility is configured to again boot normally.
    7. When your work in Safe Mode is complete, click on Start and then Run. Type msconfig in the text box and click OK.
      This will again open the System Configuration Utility program.
    8. Choose the Normal Startup radio button and click OK.
    9. You will then be prompted to either Restart, which will restart the PC immediately, or Exit Without Restart, which will close the window and allow you to restart the PC manually.
    10. After the restart, the PC will boot into Windows XP normally and will continue to do so.

    Computer restarts on shutdown


    If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts.

    1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
    2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.
    Thanks & Regards
