Computer restarts on its own

Suggestion: Start the computer in safe mode and let sit.. If it does not reset it may point to software issues. If it does reset then it may be a problem with hardware or windows.
You can use a system utility software RegInOut to optimize your PC.
Also do you have external devices attached? Printers, Digital Cameras, Scanners, etc. then unplug it.

Safe mode : Usually f8 durring boot or similar key listed during startup.
Sometimes it happens due to local area draining power.

I forgot my password and it won't let me reset

Hi sistercato...

You will need to start your computer in the "Safe Mode", you do this by tapping F8 while the computer is starting up.
Once the computer has started, select "Safe Mode"
Once you are in the safe mode, then you will double left click on "Start">Control Panel>User Accounts>Change an Account.
Now you can change your password,delete the account,etc.

My computer is frozen on the black and white compaq screen. It gives me options, but it doesn't work. (esc= boot settings, etc.) I was on the internet before this happened and I had to turn the power off...


You should try resetting your bios from the Motherboard, most modern motherboards have a BIOS reset button if yours doesnt have one, remove the button battery which is on *********** board wait for a minute or so and insert it back.

Also remove and re insert your Ram module. It helps some time. you should also check your hard drive, Cd-rom etc whether they got damaged somehow due to forced shutdown.

Hope this solves your problem.

Unable to reboot

Sounds to me like you have a bad or dying power supply. Try finding a friend with a working power supply and hook it up to your computer, if the problem ceases, then go get yourself a new power supply. If the problem persists, it may be an issue with cables or the fuse, maybe even a bad motherboard.

Computer virus protection and diagnosis

It sounds like you have some form of a hijacker virus. You probably won't be able to do this from the infected computer but, if you have a spare - or a buddy who do it for you, go to and download a copy of their Malwarebytes anti-malware program and try to install it using a flash drive.

If at all possible, physically disconnect your computer cable from your internet source (Cable, DSL, Dial-up, etc.) then try to boot into "Safe Mode" and install the Malwarebytes program while in safe mode. You can also run the program in while in safe mode.

Once the anti-malware program is installed and running, just follow the on screen instructions. This is a very user friendly, as well as a very effective cleaning program.
