Press the f8 key when it attempts to restart. It should go to a menu with several options. Choose the option that says, "Diasable automatic restart on system failure." and it should go to a blue screen with a message about your error. Write down the error and 'google it' on a working computer and it should give you a good idea of what is causing the problem. Good luck.

My Toshiba inspiron 6400 will freeze at at first booting to windows and if I shut it down and restart it keeps tripping and will not even boot. need help.

I'm not 100% sure whats going on, but i had a similar problem with my sisters computer the other day. The head on her hard drive crashed, which means that the part that reads the disk literally crashed into the disk surface, digging a groove and rendering it unreadable. It waould continuously reboot after that. The fix? buy a new hard drive. consult a professional and have them look first before you do that; ii don't want you to spend all that money on a new drive and have it still not work.

Dell XPS M1330 laptop doesn't boot just shows colored lines...

Multiple problem issue going on here, with the screen having those lines popping up the way it is, the screen is definitely going to need to be replaced.

Hard drive is a more touchy issue. Not sure if you put a new one or a refurhbished one in the system. If it was a used one or refurbished one, I would suggest putting a new one in the laptop to be sure the hard drive is good and then reinstall the OS and put the drivers back on. That would be my suggestion.

The other thing to try would be to make sure your memory is good. If you have more then one stick, try each stick one at a time and turn on the laptop after inserting just one memory stick into the drive, and then repeat the process with the other and see if the laptop does the same thing each time, if it does then you know the memory is good, if you can get it to boot up into windows with one memory stick but not the other then you know one of the memory sticks is bad.

In fact try the memory swap first and then if that doesn't get you anywhere then try a new hard drive in the laptop.

If that doesn't get you anywhere then you know for sure the motherboard is bad.

My gateway laptop 7330gz hard drive is locked and asking for passed word and it can't reboot.I try to reinstall windows using a different hard drive and when it reach format disk it keep shutting off.

Without that HD password, you are out of luck. Only thing you can do is install a new hard drive, and reload everything. You cannot even retreive any data you have on a passworded hard drive without the password.
