Computer comes on and is fine for a while then just cuts off,then turn it back on then its fine for a while then cuts back off.


Hello

To start with, you should check all your hardware. A loose connection somewhere or a faulty piece of hardware could be the reason, the computer keeps rebooting itself. In case your RAM stick is not fitted properly, or is corrupt, the computer displays an error message on the screen and keeps rebooting itself. The same problem occurs with a hard disk. You can use 'Memtest86' to run a hard drive check.

You may at times come across an error message on your screen, like a system failure error, before rebooting by itself. There is a particular solution to this type of problem. You should first go to the My Computer icon and right click on it. Select properties, and a window will appear on your screen. Click Advanced tab → Start Up and Recovery → Settings. After clicking the settings option, you will have to uncheck the box next to Automatically Restart. Click OK twice. This will prevent the computer from rebooting itself and you can redress the issue.

A different way to tackle the problem of 'computer keeps rebooting itself', would be to restart your computer in the Safe Mode. Allow the computer to boot fully and let your windows operating system load fully. Now, if your computer keeps rebooting itself even in the safe mode, there is a problem either with the operating system or hardware. And if your computer is not rebooting itself in safe mode, the problem is related to certain software.

Over heating is another reason why your computer keeps rebooting itself. Not many people pay attention to this aspect though. The fan responsible for keeping the CPU cool, may be malfunctioning or there could be dirt settled between the fan and CPU. Any one of these could be the reason for your problem. Either clean the fan area, or replace it if necessary. Try providing proper ventilation for your CPU, so that it stays as cool as possible.

You computer could reboot on it's own if you have installed improper drivers. Right click on the 'My Computer' icon, and click on 'Properties' from the menu list which appears. A new window will open. Select the 'Hardware' tab, and click on 'Device Manager'. A list will be displayed on the screen in which you will have to check all categories. Is you see any red or yellow warning icons, make sure you update that particular driver from the internet.

Computer will not run in safe mode (not in any mode). We had a power outage last week and ever since then the computer will not reboot or run. I get it cut on and a black screen appears saying that windows...


The power failure has made the operating system (windows)to crash . if you can do some installation on your pc yourself, you can repair the operating system or better still reinstall a new operating system.

Dell dimension 3000. Just Black Screen no Windows XP.


From your description, you were able to boot the machine properly in Safe Mode. While in Safe Mode, change the video resolution to the lowest possible (color depth does not matter at this point). You should also check that you are configured for single monitor operation if your video card supports multiple monitors. Reboot the machine normally. If all goes well, you can readjust your video settings for a higher resolution again.

My Dell Dimension 8200 PC keeps re booting itself once it gets to the home page. i cant even hit the start button cause it restarts itself that fast! please help


As soon as u see the black screen...hit F8 repeatedly to get it into Safe Mode.....then go to system restore and reboot/restore system back on a saved day. Then run your virus protection and scan for malware. This should get you back online. You may need a full system scan to locate the effected DLL's anmd killl off your intruder.

Windows not Starting Correctly


Hit F12 on startup and then put your Dell system disk in so it will boot from the CD.
When you get the startup, you will be prompted to see if you want to repair with the recovery console. Hit R and wait until it asks for the installation you want to repair. The option #1 should be windows, so hit #1. When it asks for the password, hit Enter (I hope you don't have an admin password, 'cause that's what it is looking for. If you hit enter and you get a c:\windows> prompt, type in the following:
chkdsk /r
After the scan runs, Windows should start. If not, let me know and we can do other stuff.

Start Normally (black screen with options)keeps re-loading itself


If you can't get into windows normally or into safe mode to try to restore the system back to a date when it worked properly then you'll need to wipe out the hard drive and start the system from scratch.

Hi there, maybe I can help.
As your computer boots hit F8, go to the startup menu and disable "automatic restart on system failure". Boot up and make not of any error messages.
