Dear all, why my windows xp always restart, even i just reinstall it, i was think the problem was the bios. then i try to update the bios. Tada!..... error. now my motherboard can't display anything. pleasee help me.... with this two problem
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).

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.
if the system was able to enter the desktop and
restarts...once possible cause is a virus...scan the pc via safemode or
but if it didn't enter the OS desktop...cause might be the boot loader or MBR
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
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.
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.
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.
