pc r restart for several reason like power supply problem, over heated, os problem. if ur pc restart when u try to access any drive or insart cd or dvd in drive means ur power supply is faulty. and if it restart after a fixed time (approximately) means over heated. (u reinstall xp so operating system is not infected.) if one of above symptom r their then no need to update bios.

2nd if some problem heppen during ur bios update and it not wirte properly and u restart ur pc in this situation the ur pc can not start and result is no display condition. if it happen then contact with any mother board repear centre or mother board service centre. (because if bios program r corrupt it need to repalce or rewite).

(**2nd time if u update any BIOS be Cautious. at first take backup then update. if any problem happen then restor with backup copy, then restart ur pc. until u sure update successfully do not restart ur pc).

I forgot bios password for my toshiba laptop?

You forgot your password to get in to your computer? If this is the case i recommend the program ophcrack. if you can get someone to burn it to a disc for you it will crack your password and allow you access to your computer, it will tell you the password so you can get in in the future.
Hope this answers your questions. Sean

Changed MSI MB to Gigabyte. I get bios and even the windows recovery window but every time it just restarts and wants to do a start up and repair that always fails. Help.
This is Gigabytes link to downloads. Did you uninstall software from MSI? Try to shut down, unplug system, and restart. You might want to consider a "system restore" back to when it did work. Did it work at all with new board?

HP Desktop PC, won't boot even under safe mode

if the system was able to enter the desktop and restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or reinstall windows.

but if it didn't enter the OS desktop...cause might be the boot loader or MBR is damage..

worth a try:

Run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:
1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.
2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.
3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console.
4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.
5. At the command prompt, type this commands one at a time.

BOOTCFG /rebuild

6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

System Restart regularly

You may be 'onto something' there, and I'm embarassed!!!! Just looked at the vid card, and don't have the 3X2 connector plugged in. I took a quick look, but didn't see 1 to try to plug in.

I will check the others, and get back with spec's. The PS is brand new, since this 'opportunity' arose, and have also swapped the MB, as I had 2 of the same.

Please reply, so that I can reply back.

Thanks!!! Phil

Have you flashed the BIOS with either the original factory settings or a recent update? Take careful note of exactly where the computer restarts, either upon Windows start-up or from a cold restart. If the former, then there is no substitute for a reinstall, which is also a good time to make all the settings in Windows just the way you like them. I have reinstalled Windows at least 20 times and always have had changes that I learned from the previous installation. If the computer is restarting before Windows boot, then it is in the BIOS. Reflash from the original or update based upon your needs which can be found in the revision notes for each update. There is only one other suggestion. If per-chance, you have an AMD based machine and have recently tried to install Windows XP SP3, you have been caught in a freakish occurrence. Allegedly, Microsoft has been working, endlessly it now appears, a fix but I would not wait for them. f you can, back up your data and attempt to remove the Service Pack (3). If you cannot remove it, go ahead and reinstall. Pray for a working backup or successful backup attempt. I would suggest both knees.

Drivers for audio and video are causing lockups and restarts in Windows XP

I think it's the usual problem of a sound and graphics driver conflict. What has probably happened is Windows update has updated sound drivers for your mobo, and they don't always work well. If you still have the motherboard cd, install the original drivers for both sound and video, or download from your mobo's web site, but make sure you uninstal the present drivers first. If all fails i think your right to install an AGP graphics card and dissable the onboard graphics, as they are only cheap for a decent 128Mb or 256MB card. If you wish to check the sound and graphics click Start> Run, then type 'dxdiag' without quotes in the 'OPEN' box then press enter. This will test all sound and video as well as drivers. Good luck, don't give up.

Pc restarting by itself.

Try reapplying thermal compound to the CPU and reseat it. It might just be heating up and restarting due to the heat.
