Greetings... My PC keeps on restarting without error code. I already disable the Auto restart on error (Windows XP). I inserted Windows XP CD, it boots from there but will restart after loading necessary Setup files (After NTFS….). I also inserted Ubuntu CD still it restart after loading kernel… I think it’s a mother board problem. (Memory and HD is OK, as I test them with other PC) Thanks.

Re: PC keeps on restarting
Power supply can be your issue , when windows boots from CD it a mear dos-mode boot , If it was motherbaord problem it wouldn't boot at all . If you move power supply to test the motherboard issue just make sure it enough power to boot the other motherboard ( some pwer supplies can boot all motherboards )
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Repair Window Xp by inserting windows XP cd in CD drive. After repair use a system utility software like RegInOut to avoid this error in future. It will also fix corrupt registry files and windows files.
Hi, I would suggest you first try the Start Up Repair for Windows XP. 1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer. 2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD. 3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done choose "To set up Windows XP now, press ENTER"4. Press F8 to agree to the License Agreement 5. Choose "To repair the selected Windows XP installation, press R" Windows will then start the repair process. Do not worry all your data and settings will be retained.
If above solution does not work then,Use Recovery Console. 1. Just insert the Windows XP installation CD that came with your computer then restart the computer.2. You should get a prompt to start the computer from the CD drive, if not you need to enter BIOS settings to set the start/boot up mode so that your computer will boot up first from the CD.3. When you see the blue screen, let the computer load everything and when it's done press R to repair Windows XP using Recovery Console4. On the Recovery Console, choose the installation you would like to log on to (for example c:\Windows)5. Type Chkdsk /p /r on the Recovery Console and your computer will begin to check the hard drive for error and recover data.6. Once Chkdsk is completed, type exit then press Enter. Computer should restart. No need to boot from CD at this point. You can take out the Windows installation CD.
If it's rebooting when trying to boot into safe mode as well, have you tried "Last Known Good Configuration"? Press F8 like you do to go into Safe Mode, and choose this instead.
If this doesn't work, on the F8 menu, you can disable automatic restart. This will cause Windows to hang instead of automatically rebooting when it encounters an error. With any luck, it will display a STOP error for you. If you get this, comment with the error and I'll be happy to look that up for you.
If this helps, please give a positive rating.
Insert the Windows OS CD in the CD drive of your computer, and then restart your computer.
Press "R" on your keyboard when
you see the Windows XP( if your OS is XP) "Welcome to Setup" screen. This will start the
Windows XP recovery console. If you are asked to enter the administrator
password, type it and press "Enter."
Type the following commands one by one, without quotes, at the command prompt, and then press "Enter."
"EXPAND drive_letter1:\i386\user32.dll_ drive_letter2\windows\system32"
"EXPAND drive_letter1:\i386\userinit.ex_ drive_letter2\windows\system32"
Replace drive_letter1 here with the CD drive letter of your computer
in which the Windows XP setup CD is present (for example, E:), and
drive_letter2 here with the letter of the drive in which Windows XP is
installed on your computer
Any doubts you can get the help of a technician through
You will need to press the F8 key before windows starts to load then disable the auto restart on error. That will allow you to read the error message and someone may be able to guide you. You could also try booting from the XP CD and run the recovery console (if that's an option) once in the recovery console type chkdsk /r to correct any errors & try booting again.
Disable automatic restart on system failure. This should help by allowing time to write down the STOP code properly. Right click on the My Computer icon on the Desktop and select Properties, Advanced, Start-Up and Recovery, System Failure and uncheck box before Automatically Restart.
Do not re-enable automatic restart on system failure until you have resolved the problem. Check for variants of the Stop Error message.
An alternative is to keep pressing the F8 key during Start-Up and select option - Disable automatic restart on system failure.
If you are using a wireless keyboard and the F8 key does not work substitute a wired keyboard and mouse for this exercise only.

Do you hear the cd/dvd working? Is the machine booting to the cd?
If so, boot using the WINXP cd. When it comes to the install screen say yes to a new install, it will ask you to accept the license, press F8. XP will then check for previous versions of windows already installed. If it finds one, select "R" to repair the existing copies of XP. You may need to reactivate your copy of windows and redo any updates but thats no big deal.
Now if none of that works try the following:
Can you access the start options menu when the machine boots by pressing the F8 key as the first toshiba screen is shown keep pressing F8 until a screen appears that shows:
Safe Mode w/ Networking
Safe Mode Command Prompt
disable auto restart
and some other entries
Choose safe mode with command prompt.
it will look like an old ms/dos window.
type CHKDSK /R
