I restored T5048, but now it shuts down and restarts non stop ?


Shuts down and restarts the boot process automatically continuously. Try turning it off, then hit the power button and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE Mode. Scroll down and see if you see an option to Cancel or Stop automatic restart on system failure. If you do click that and try rebooting your machine. It should tell you what exactly is the problem so you can read it without it rebooting all the time.

If it's that you need a CMOS battery you're in luck. Just turn the computer off, remove the case, sit the computer on it's side, get a flashlight and look inside for a battery about the size of a nickel. Normally the size of the battery is CR2032 which can be purchased at Walmart or you local grocery or drug store for $5.00. Just use a small flat head screw driver to remove the old battery and pop in a new one.

The Computer has trouble restarting Windows XP. I have to shut it down and unplug it for at least 2 minutes in order for it to start normally past the black screen. Otherwise, it will keep restarting...


I'm guessing from what you are saying, that it will in fact boot to safe mode. the culprit is most likely a resently added program. my other favourite is thermal shut down. remove the cover (after it is shut down and power is removed) and see if it's filled with dust and dirt. when the case is off start the computer up. are all the fans working as well ?
