The first thing you should look for is a virus, some of them can have that affect on your system. The fact that you can start you computer in safe mode means that the likelyhood of this being a hardware problem is very low.

If you dont have any antivirus program loaded, then try AVG, it's free. just google AVG to find a download.

Next, try the following: go to the start button, click on the run button and then typr msconfig in the run line. In the window that pops up, select the staartup tab and uncheck all of the checkboxes on the left side. Then click ok and reboot you computer again. If your computer stats up without any further problems, then you have your cuplrit. just unselect one item after each reboot and use your computer for a while until it is long past the time you would normally have the reboot problem. Then, do it over and over again until your computer starts rebooting again. once it does, turn that program off and uninstall it. IF it's something you really need, install it again.

If your computer fully loads Windows, than starts a restard process you are looking at having an annoying virus. Since there are several different viruses that can cause this problem, if this is the reason for the restarting, you would be best off loading Windows in safe mode (using the F8 key before Windows starts to load will give you a menu with options like SAFE MODE) and than trying to scan it for viruses.

If your computer doesn't actually load Windows, but restarts after the Windows loading screen, you could have a corrupt driver causing Windows to restart. If your computer were slow, you would see the error message, faster computers go through the error screen too fast. The best way to determine this would be to start in SAFE MODE and see if the same problem exists.

Let me know what happens after you start in SAFE MODE.

My asus x502c won't come on only black screen with a mouse how do I get it to switch on?


Pres and hold CONTROL, ALT, and DELETE together and then release. The Task Manager will appear - first check under the Programs tab for running applications and END anything running. If nothing there, go to PROCESSES and start ENDING anything you don't recognize, ONE AT A TIME. This will usually release whatever is running and restore your desktop quickly.

If you are not comfortable using the Task Manager, restart your computer in SAFE MODE by pressing F8 BEFORE the Windows start screen appears. When given options, select SAFE MODE with NETWORKING. Once you have successfully booted into safe mode, your computer "usually" restarts normally when you reboot it again. Regular mode will be the default when you reboot.

Windows hiccups sometimes.

Disable safe mode


Which operating system and do you have Norton antivirus ???
Turn Off Safe Mode

You rebooted your PC at least 10 times now, and still it refuses to start in anything other than Safe Mode.
Your many attempts to perform a system restore have yet to be victorious. It just will not boot up normally.
According to Microsoft, if you have Norton Antivirus 2001 installed on your computer, it is the root of the problem. Microsoft suggests you disable it.

Restart your computer. Let it load completely in Safe Mode.
Press "Run" on your Start menu.
Once you see the Open box, enter into the provided text box: misconfig.
Then press "Enter" or Select "OK."
Select on the new dialog box that has appeared "Selective Startup."
Select "NAVAP.VxD" on the Static VxD tab.
Remove the check in the check box you now see.
Select "OK."
Remove the check in the check box next to Norton Auto Protect.
Select "OK."
Reboot your system and it will be in Normal Mode.
Turn Off Safe Mode in Windows XP
The purpose of booting your computer in safe mode is to resolve issues.
Only your basic, most dire drivers and programs will run to block viruses and surreptitious software from executing on your system.
But once the issue is resolved, you need to get back to the standard Windows mode. In order to turn off safe mode in Windows XP, you must go through the same steps that you took to turn it on.

Reboot your Windows system.
Press the "F8" key several times as soon as you see the first Windows XP logo appear on your screen as the computer is booting.
This will bring up a black screen that displays the "Windows Advanced Options Menu."
Press the down arrow button on your keyboard to scroll down the list.
Select "Start Windows Normally" and then hit "Enter."
Allow the system to boot.
Enter your Windows XP user password (if you set one) and log in as usual.

Y my key board & mouse dont work wen i open my cpu


Make sure you have them in the correct ports in the back of the computer. If the end that goes into the back of the computer is round then you have PS2 serial type keyboard and mouse. If it is flat you have usb type mouse and keyboard. If it is round, the keyboard goes into the purple colored port and the mouse goes into the green port. If you put them in or remove them while the computer is on you will have to reboot the computer. They are not plug and play like the usb types.

If they still don't work try booting up in Safe Mode.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Take the Safe Mode option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will look different to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this is normal. If the work in Safe Mode then you probably have a virus or infection that has hijacked the keyboard.

Take the steps above to reboot in Safe Mode, but this time when the safe mode options appear, select Safe Mode With Networking option (this will give you internet connectivity). Open your internet browser when it finishes booting up and download and install MalwareBytes.


Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download and install malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When the site opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do not click the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the Gui Interface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version or Decline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run a QUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be in red. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad text document will open up showing you the results. You can close the text document and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTED RESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When it finishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot your machine.

I may have a virus. Operating program won't open. Shall I rebote the system?


try restarting the PC in Safe Mode. Upon reboot keep pressing the F8 key. It will open a selection menu for you to choose safe mode. Go into Safe Mode and open your My Computer and right click on the C drive and go down to properties. THen go to the Tool tab and select the Check Disk option. It will ask you to check two boxes and then it will say you need to reboot your PC. Reboot your PC and let it run. Once its done it will automatically start back up with the OS. If your still having issues then restart the pc and go back into safe mode and this time run your anti virus program.

Hope this helps...

My ascer aspire 3680 has windows xp on it. I had


go to advanced option by tapping f8 while starting the computer, go to disabled automatic restart, now this time onwards if it crash again it will tell u the err , then u can talk abt the resolution. by the time u can do a system restore.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.
