A malware like virus or incompatible software, so does broken hardware may lead to computer keeps restarting. To fix your computer you can try the following steps.
1.You should troubleshooting whether if the computer restarts every time a certain hardware device is plugged in or switched on, the device itself might be to blame.

Pc keeps restarting


When you are working with it? Have you check for dust inside? Is it getting sufficent air flow? Can you give more info? Open Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced Power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never. When not in use shut down.

Computer keeps freezing


If you havent installed any software lately or made any changes to the software/hardware, most likely the "slowness"is coming from a potential virus. Try running a virus scan if you haven't already or taking it to a staples or somewhere that offers free tune ups.

My pc keeps restarting over and over but I don't have restore disc


Hello!

There are a lot of factors why your PC is acting that way, it could be a virus infection, hardware or software problems.

Virus Infection
- if your computer is infected or the virus behavior or capability is to keep restarting your system or PC. This could be the solution, you can install a decent virus scanner and update it always to be able to detect viruses.

Software Problem
- If your Operating System is behaving badly or some system files is missing, this can cause your PC to always restarts. To fix this is to reformat your hard drive and install OS again.

Hardware Problem
- If your RAM or one of the memory installed in your PC is defective it can cause restarting also, try cleaning your RAM's or swap other RAM to be able to determine the problem.

Hope I was able to help.

When i load up my windwo it freeze on please wait screen


aw I think you have problem in hardware, software or user.. hardware means there are parts of your computer hardware that have a glitch or uncompatible, software maybe you have been virus or you installed uncompatible programs, user unproper management of computer like unproper shutdown.... that cause the system or hardware to crash....

Try booting in safe mode by pressing F8 when you turn on or restarting the computer, if a boot selection appeared select your primary hard disk then select safe mode.. after good start up in safe mode uninstalling the new software that you install if there is then restart the computer properly. if you install a new hardware try to take it out and turn on again the computer... TY

Hi, my name is Alex and im here to help sort your problem out

There are a few reasons why your computer can be hanging.

1: Check to see if there is dust inside the computer. If there is a lot of dust, then remove all the cards such as graphics card, memory and also remove the processor and its fan to remove all dust. Dust is a known cause as it traps heat and can cause the CPU not to run properly. If you are not sure of how to do this, then please get a qualified computer technician to do this for you.

2: The other known problem is you could have a conflict with software or even hardware. Have you recently installed any new hardware in your PC. If you haven't, and isnt a dust problem, then its a software problem, its possible you may have a virus that is not letting your PC restart properly, but I would uninstall any software you may have installed before this problem started occuring before considering a virus

I hope this information helps. Please let me know if you have any more questions,

First check that it is not overheating due to build up of dust in the vents and the fans and heatsinks on the CPU and VGA card.

Also try booting in safe mode - press F8 repeatedly during the POST until you get a menu to "start in safe mode" or similar
