Right Click My Computer, Click Properties.
Click Advanced
Click Settings
Uncheck "Automatically Restart"

This will allow you to see the message that caused the restart.

Sounds like its memory, or the mainboard.

    Have you tried safe mode?

    Sounds like a Software ONLY problem.

    When pressing F8 to get to the safe mode menu, do you have the option to 'disable automatic rebooting on errors' ?

Motherboard need for ada3000aep4ax processor

Power ok but display is not comming

try to remove the processor, ram nd the bettery then try powering up it will not go on, then put back everthng u hav removed without the HardDisc connected, then turn it off reomove the cmos jamper to reset the bios.

Booting problem

You may want to check your harddrive if you cannot boot to windows but the machine turn on (leds light up) you may need to replace you Harddisc.

If the machine does not turn on at all (no leds, no fans spinning) you may want to check your power supply. if that doesnt solve it check you memory and mainboard.

Good luck!

Hey I have A big problem 10 sek in start up my pc is shuttnig down I have change RAM UPS HARDDISC SCREENCARD And it is still shutning down HELP The Motherbord is A ECS ht-2000 it is an E-machine

It as possible problem with the SMPS or Processor

First of all check the processor fan if its running properly,check if processor is heating up
Also do check if there is any dust over the processor Fan, remove it

Else change the SMPS

Hi, i want to ask for a help on my pc.. this morning i dismantle every hardware attach to my pc just clean it up from dust and i used a blower to get rid of the dust.. then after i clean it up i restore...

Did u dismantle the processor too? Check the processor´s vent, is it well placed? System turns off when it doesnt, cuz processor overheats really fast if its not well attached to its vent.
Try checking the RAM too, if u are using more than one card, check one at a time.

Windows wont start and keeps rebooting

I suggest that some of the Electrolytic Capacitors have failed on the motherboard. The ones surrounding the processor, to be more specific. These are Voltage Regulators for the processor.

Computer unplugged from the surge protector, computer case open. Touch the metal frame of the computer case, to relieve your body of Static electricity.

Take a flashlight, and look at the Electrolytic Capacitors.
I know. "Say What?"
I advise you to go to this website, and see what Electrolytic Capacitors on the motherboard look like, and what they look like when they are failing,
(If this doesn't come up as a link you just click on, copy and paste it into your address bar, then press the Enter key)

This link is to a video on YouTube, that shows you what failing capacitors look like, relative to the one's used for the processor. Also tells and shows you why your computer restarts.
