Your harddrive is starting to go. You will need to replace your hard drive. When you computer starts running slow then it reboots itself is because it is trying to get itself to work properly, but the hard drive is not operating at full capacity. I would back up all of your files as soon as you can onto either a CD or a flash drive, to save yourself from very costly repairs if you need to have the data extracted from the hard drive
Unplug your receiver for two minutes. When the first screen pops up I think it says acquiring satellite info do the following.
With the remote press menu then go to settings then setup then reset
and press restart everything . Just remember to reset your times and settings on the dvr. It may not work right away, just keep trying, including unplugging the infernal machine!
Its better to show it to technician bcz it seems the motherboard inside lost bios flash and its unable to detect old settings so that everytime it reboots checks bios and then reboots again to flash it. Better show it to a local technician. One other way is to try booting it in safe mode and then check if it works.
Jay .. if you still have the receiver. heres what you do. reset the receiver and when the blue screen comes up saying "Hello your directv receiver is starting up" On your remote type in 0 2 4 6 8 .. then it should go to a screen saying "new software found" . Let it download the update.. That should fix the issue .. However if it doesn't then it could be the hard drive. The pcb board on them usually fries.. but that can be ordered too... let me know how this works... you can email me at [email protected]
When it's rebooting, on the first blue screen press 02468 on the remote. This will force a software update. If you have trouble getting it enter at the right time or you just want to make sure, just keep pressing 02468 until it goes to the update. It won't hurt any thing. Hope this helps.
