PC keeps on restarting

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.

Eric

Clean all fans and heat sinks on your motherboard as it could be rebooting due to overheating
if this does not work try this
If you can try this go to c:\ right click go to properties/tools/error check/check now/ when new box appears tick box to fix errors reboot on reboot windows will scan disk and fix any errors that are there and will automatically fix errors and reboot on restart check and see if everything is OK

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 )

    All power supplies are not the same . I stated clearly you must make sure they are the same wattage or stronger

How to install windows xp in msi k8mm-v motherboard?


Hi dharmen_shah,
I see that you need to install Windows XP on you Dekstop with an MSI Motherboard k8mm-V.
I have another desktop using the same Motherboard, there are 3 options installing Windows XP on the machine.
  1. Using an IDE Optical Drive
  2. Using a SATA Optical Drive "not a common installation process on this motherboard" since you will need to install the SATA rivers first to be able to use your SATA ODD
  3. Using a USB Flash Drive
See steps below for each installation type.
*Using an IDE Optical Drive*
  • If you have your Windows XP CD insert it on the Disc Drive restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • Once in the Boot Menu screen select your Optical Drive, it may say dvd/cd or ODD, select this and press enter. Note: windows may restart during the installation if it says press any key to boot to cd do not press anything anymore leave it will do everything on it's own unless prompted for any user information like a computer name date and time.
  • You will see on the screen Boot to cd: then it will show "press any key to boot to cd" press Enter or any key this will boot from your cd Windows XP.
  • Then you will see inspecting your hardware for configuration, once it boots to your Windows XP cd you will see a blue screen Loading up drivers and stuff for the installation of Windows XP.
  • Next will be the installation of Windows XP itself, just follow the prompt it is very easy to follow and it will give you all the details and what buttons to click on.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.

*Using SATA Optical Disc Drive*
  • You will need a 1.4 floppy disc to be able to do this.
  • If you have a 1.4 Floppy Drive you will also need to download the SATA driver from the MSI website.
  • Let us disregard this option since I believe you do no have a 1.4 Floppy Disc Drive and no one uses that or has a 1.4 Floppy Drive anymore on their machines.
*Using a USB Flash Drive*
  • To be able to use a USB Flash Drive for the installation of Windows XP your USB Flash Drive should at least be 1GB or 2GB, 1GB will be enough since windows XP only uses at least 7++gb of disc space for the installer size.
  • Using you USB Flash Drive you will need to copy the whole contents of your Windows XP Cd into your USB Flash Drive, don't worry this will be bootable just make sure that you copy everything from the disc into the USB Flash Drive.
  • Once you have copied Windows XP on your USB Flash Drive insert it to one of your USB ports on the machine then restart the computer.
  • Restart the system as soon as the system restarts keep on tapping F11 this will bring you to the Boot menu.
  • This will be the same as using your Windows XP cd but instead you will need to select USB in the Boot Menu then press enter. on the installation steps it will be the same as installing using a disc.
  • Note: Select Quick Format (NTFS) this will be faster reformatting your Hard Drive before installation.
  • Windows may restart during the installation and using a USB Flash Drive will be different at this point because it will boot directly to the USB, Once it restarts and may repeat the installation all over, to prevent this as soon as the system begins to restart from the installation go and keep on tapping "Delete" once it restarts this will bring you to the BIOS screen press F9 to set it to defaults then press F10 to save and exit this will restart again.
  • Once it restarts after setting the BIOS to defaults let the system boot on its own it will then show you a screen asking what windows to install the first thing highlighted will be the installation that was halted earlier just press enter then it will show you the windows installation page and will continue on it's own.
This is based on my own experience since I have an older Desktop that has the same Motherboard, I hope that I have given you all the options possible to installing your windows XP on your Motherboard k8mm-v.
Have a nice day,

mvincentc

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.

FIXMBR C:
FIXBOOT C:
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTLDR C:\
COPY [CDDRIVE]:\I386\NTDETECT.COM C:\
BOOTCFG /rebuild


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

BSOD- STOP error message


most bios updates are found on the compaq website, they need to usually uncompress to a 3.5 floppy or they are auto-installing programs u get from the website, your issue however sounds to me more like a corrupted version of windows, did you try a fresh installation with the recovery cds or master disks?
