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.

I Need to reboot and i dont know how to


There are two ways. the best way is to click "start" then select "restart" (same as reboot).

this is a soft reboot because you never really power down the computer. You can also hold the power button in for a few seconds and it will turn the computer off. if it doesn't restart by itself momentarily press the power button once more.

Phone keep restarting upon sending sms and during calls


Try to update the software of the phone. I also had a problem almost the same as yours but after updating the software, the problem was solved. It even activated the screen saver feature that the phone didn't have when I bought it. You can get the updated software from the SE's website.

My computer keeps rebooting want allow me to go into safe mode only recovery. However upon restart it constantly reboots.


One problem can be that the router and net is on while you turn on your computer, so turn off the internet and router. Another problem is that its an annoying virus that forces the computer to restart itself.
