Computer poewer keeps turning on and off wotn stay on

Sounds like the system is overheating, then shuts down. The easiest thing to try first is blow out the case of any dust/debris. Pop the case cover and use an air can to clean out the dust. Be sure to go over any heat sinks on the CPU and video card, fans, inside the power supply, and anywhere you see a collection of dust. Then put the case cover back on and power up the unit. If the problem does not go away then you most likely have a component failing, i.e. motherboard, power supply, video card, etc... At that point I would take it to a professional.

Computer unexpectedly reboots

There could be a number of things wrong with the system that would cause it to randomly reboot.

1. Try an antivirus scan. Use a good, trustworthy antivirus software to scan for viruses. There are good, free software programs out there such as Avast! Free, Avira Free and AVG Free, if you don't already have an antivirus.
2. Is the computer overheating? Check to make sure your rear vents on the computer are not blocked or obstructed. If you aren't scared to open up the case, check to make sure it isn't clogged with dust. You could also try to check for faulty cooling fans inside the system.
3. Is there a problem with Windows? Have you made any changes to Windows recently? You can try a system restore, defragmenting the disk or running a disk cleanup.

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before

Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

Have you run an Anti Virus scan?

Goto Task manager.
From there you can see what processes are running. Norton and Symatec will hog your resources.. End the process that is causing the problem.. careful here.. Some of the Microsoft processes are essential for operation..
After you locate the culprit..
Start>Run> msconfig>startup
Disable the program that is causing the problem and reboot..

Video skips

Try rebooting your computer and close all programs that start. Running a video requires memeory and all the programs running in the background use this memory.

Also, make sure the DVD player is clean. You can clean with a can of air and spray the dust from the inside. No need to open case. The laser can have dust on it which causes skipping.
