Preferred Solution: Pc Restarts Every 3-5 Hours.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Run the WGA tool to check whether your system is genuine: http://www.microsoft.com/Genuine/
Note that it is against the forum rules to help you if you are running pirated software.

You cant prevent it from happening, and in fact at the end of this month it goes into limited functionality mode. You can get RTM by buying it from MS or other retail source. Your current activation will not work on the RTM (7600)

Greetings All,

I have had really bad frustrations with the unpredictability of Focus Assist and Active Hours ever since build 1809 on Windows 10 and this has now carried over on two PC?s; a Dell Desktop and a Toshiba Laptop. Here are some observations for the Microsoft Answers Community:

I have my Active Hours set from 7am to 11 PM on both computers. I also have notices checked to receive restart notifications. I will get the typical two notifications about the restarts sometimes on Patch Tuesday or the following day.

Sometimes the restarts are fine going without a hitch within about 1-2 hours after the first update notice. Other times for the past two YEARS I keep getting ?Your Computer Will Need to Start Outside of Active Hours, sometimes for FOUR OR FINE DAYS! The restart is not kicking in after the range of Active Hours have ended. This means, that from 11:O1PM to 7:01 AM I am not getting the restarts outside of Active Hours that Action Center says are waiting. Sometimes I just restart the computer through the Windows Start logo button I can?t stand waiting anymore.

What algorithms determine when these restarts happen outside of Active Hours? Why is there a delay of up to four or five days for a restart to occur for Restarts to happen outside of Active Hours? Microsoft needs to get a more definitive time for when the computer is set to restart outside of Active Hours and we need to see this in the Action Center toaster pop-up. Right-now, we have to g...

Hi!
I've read like 400 forum posts with the same problem without finding the solutions.

My computer can run a game (CSGO) for about 1-2 hours then it restarts. No bluescreen. After that it can restart just by opening a new website on chrome.

Specs:
ASUS motherboard z87-A
GTX 970 strix
Intel i5 3.4 Ghz
16 gb ram Corsair
Fractal design 800w PSU
intel 128gb SSD
This is what ive tried:
Removed 1 ram at the time
Removed the GPU (used the built in one on the motherboard when I tried this)
Checked temps on HWmonitor all looks normal. 30-40 degrees on both GPU and CPU
Reinstalled windows 7 and formated the entire drive before that.
Check the volts on HWmonitor and it looks fine.
Ive done a Memtest over night with 0 errors.
Installed old and new drivers for everything.

Ive checked event viewer and it tells me nothing. Only that computer restarted faulty.

When I run a Furmark test it can sometimes run for hours until I press "space" and make the ring disapear then comeback then it restarts.

Hope someone has some clue of what is going on here.

Thank you very much
 

A:Computer restarts after 1-2 hours of gaming. Tried almost everything. Need ideas of whats going on.

If there's a failure that forces restart, then the EVENTVWR will log it before the restart.
Look again for logs->system, scroll for errors

Hi folks,

We need to run a Data Collector Set, to continuously monitor performance of some machines. We created the DCS from a Basic template, configured and started ok.?
However, few hours later the DCS stops, and we get "Access Denied" error when we try to re-start it.?
Deleting the DCS and re-creating it resolves the issue for few hours, but then again the DCS stops few hours later with "Access Denied" error.?
We can not figure out what is causing it. ?
The issue happens to all our Windows boxes, old and new, running different OS, from Windows Server 2008 R2 to Windows Server 2016.?
Any ideas?

My computer restarts itself straight away each time! Later on i notice when i left the computer on while i'm sleepin the computer restarts itself sometimes too. Once a BSOD appeared.

A:Windows 7 PC restarts itself when launching certain games/restarts itself on random

My PC started to restart itself randomly a while ago, but I honestly couldn't tell you what caused it because I dont know! I opened her up and looked inside and checked all the connections (with some I disconnected and reconnected to make sure they were on right) and after that... no more problems! Strange and unhelpful I know... but might be worth checking your connections.

Hi. I have a Nvidia Geforce 460 gtx and whenever i attempt to change my resolution to somthing over 1024 x 768 My computer
restarts... the Native Resolution of my monitor is 1680 x 1050 and for some reason it doesn't even show as an option.

This all started about a week or two ago after a windows update.. At first it was just a resolution problem. so after messing with it for a while I uninstalling drivers and running drive sweeper to No avail.. I then checked my memory and my psu Nothing wrong there I then decided to Roll it back before the update to see if it did anything, after messing with it for 2 days I decided to try a reformat. After the reformat I reinstalled the 260.99 wql drivers and that is when the problems got worse.. I started getting vertical lines on my screen after windows loaded .. After going through a few troubleshooting steps with Evga They set me up with an RMA.. Anyway.. got the new card tonight and the vertical lines are gone but the resolution is still messed up and if i try to use Nvida contol panel to change the resolution my PC restarts.. At this point im a little bit confused

My System specs are

Intel I7 920 (stock)
Asrock x58 extreme
Corsair xms3 1600
EVGA geforce 460
AOC 22 inch 22lvwk
Corsair tx 650 psu
 

A:Resolution change restarts/restarts after login

Did you uninstalled the old drivers, then ran driver sweeper and re-installed drivers with the new card?

Also do stress test your graphic card with OCCT (both memory and GPU); to be certain that your replacement card is healthy.

Also ensure that power connector for the graphic card is properly seated.

I have a Dell Dimention 2350 , Windows XP Home edition, SP2.
The computer just shuts down at time without error messages. I can be on the net or running any program. Then it just restarts as if I I pushed the start button. A few times , when it restarted, it loaded me into the page that you get when you tap F8 at startup.
I think it's clean from viruses. I have run Spybot and SuperAnti Spyware and AVG.
It has ZoneAlarm for a firewall and runs AVG antivirus. When I opened the inside of the case, it was very clean. No dust on the "fins" or any dust buildup anywhere. I ran PCPitstop and it said 3 drivers were out of date and I believe that I have updated 2 out of 3 of them.
I installed Advanced WindowsCare V2 Personal to see if that would help, but it didn't.
I also installed SpeedFan 4.34, to see if I could get a reading on how hot the processor was but I couldn't get the program to show the temp. All it would show was the fan rpm.
I don't know what else to check or download. Any and ALL help is much appreciated !!!
I did download an updated driver for the graphics controller, just because PCPitStop said it needed it. Itwas an Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics controller, and I got it from Dell downloads. After doing that PCPitStop still says that I need to update that driver, along with a mouse driver and an Intel(r) AC"97 Audio Controller.
Any and help is VERY much appreciated !!!

A:DDS has run for over 24 hours and still going

I recommend stopping it and use an alternate.If you cannot get DDS to work, please try this instead.

If you get a warning from your firewall or other security programs regarding RSIT attempting to contact the Internet, please allow the connection. Close all applications and windows so that you have nothing open and are at your Desktop. Double-click on RSIT.exe to start the program.
If using Windows Vista, be sure to Run As Administrator. Read the disclaimer and click Continue. When the scan is complete, a text file named log.txt will automatically open in Notepad. Another text file named info.txt will open minimized. Save the log files to your desktop and copy/paste the contents of log.txt by highlighting everything and pressing Ctrl+C. After highlighting, right-click, choose Copy and then paste the contents into a new topic in the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs forum, NOT here.

A:How many hours can i?

It would depend on your computer and how hot it may run. If it runs reasonably cool, running a computer overnight shouldn't be a problem. Mine runs around 38?C most of the time (it's running around 41?C right now because the room is 28?C) and I run it 24/7 without any problems.

I don't know what to do with this one...
A guy calls up and tells me this:

I burnt a C++ program on your laptop (WinXP).
My date and time are set correctly (The CD was burnt on June 26, 2004 12:12 EDT).
I take the CD out and puts it in a Windows98 machine and it reads the CD was burnt on June 26, 2004 7:12PM.
The Win98 machine clock is set OK and so is CMOS time.

He cannot use it unless he adjusts his Win98 clock five hours ahead.
I checked his BIOS time and it was correct.
Double checked Windows time and it was correct, as well.
The guy was programming, so I figured he knew his way around a PC.
He was using the latest version of Nero.

I know that Eastern time in Windows says -05:00.
That is a five hour difference.
Would that have anything to do with it?

I had to forward that file up to a product specialist (embarrassing).

I'm scratching my head on this one...

Hello,
My stock Lenova desktop w/ win7 home did not wake up at 6AM from sleep - only my monitor turns off - the HD never turns off (my choice). So I turned it off with the power button and it has been starting very slowly. First it said it was configuring my desktop then when I returned 4 hours later it said "Preparing to configure Windows - Do not turn machine off" That was approx 3 hours ago. Normlly when things stop like this - the little ring is still rotating - I would turn it off but with it saying"Do not turn off' I am not sure I can safely do that.

What should I do?

A:Still updating after 6 Hours

It seems the OS thinks it's a new install showing those screens.

Disconnect any external USB devices except the mouse and keyboard. Give it some more time to see if it finishes.

go to http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/files/HijackThis.exe and download 'Hijack This!'.
make sure it is placed into it's own folder, not a temporary folder. Then doubleclick the Hijackthis.exe.
Click the "Scan" button, when the scan is finished the scan button will become "Save Log" click that and save the log.
Go to where you saved the log and click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" then Paste the log back here in a reply.
It will possibly show issues deserving our attention, but most of what it lists will be harmless or even required,
so do NOT fix anything yet.

I normally let Vista perform a regularly scheduled Defrag, but I was having

Hello Pixelgrower,
You can stop the process with no problems.
I would recommend this Defragging tool, it's quick, easy to use, and it's free.

Download Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.1.0.65 - Improve your computer's performance and stability - Softpedia

The drive will always blink, as it is continually writing to the system restore for a backup, and there is always a process accessing the HHD at one time or another.
Follow the link to download and give it a try, hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

This laptop gets very little use, but unfortunately while using on battery power last month, checking emails, the power went off  for no reason. tried everything, hooking up to recharge, trying to find solution on line like resetting  battery but with no luck. Not once did any light come on or power return.  as i do not live in a town where i purchased the computer, a couple months went by before i got back to the store where purchased to learn that the warranty had "expired" 2 days before. i was told to contact ACER. I did.. A tech support live chat with a Roseny M was cordial until she realized it was "out of warranty" whereby she just hung up on me when i was trying to get return information and inquiring as to why this was not covered by warranty. Now i can't even get transferred to a supervisor. MicroCenter where i bought this POS said it would probably run 1000 dollars to repair..i had just paid 1300 on purchase, and a 75 dollar diagnostic fee so again am thinking this should get a better response from ACER to fix a problem that appears to be congenital.  Has anyone else out there been able to fix this problem with out sending it to ACER, or been more successful than i have in even getting them to listen.  I used to buy a lot of ACER products but now it is my mission in life to get the word out about their customer support or lack thereof.

When I first booted up my computer, I clean installed Windows 7 Ultimate from a genuine upgrade disc I got from school. However, I realized that the key code only worked for upgrades, and not new installations. (I WAS SOO STUPID.. IF I KNEW ABOUT THE DOUBLE INSTALLATION THING NONE OF THIS WOULD BE HAPPENING) So, I grabbed a copy of a volume licensed XP from school and installed, formatting the Windows 7 partition, thinking that the upgrade would work once I had a licensed version of windows to build off of.

However, EVERY SINGLE TIME I get the the "expanding files" stage of windows 7 installation now, error 0x80070570 comes up, telling me that a file is missing or corrupted. I have searched nearly every thread on this forum, trying everything from reseating RAM, to resetting the CMOS, to checking the hard drives, to even borrowing another installation disc from a friend.

But NOTHING WORKS....

Someone please please help me. I am sooo frustrated. Especially since I had 7 running previously, but I formatted the hard drive....

Thanks in advance. Any help would be appreciated. Please don't refer me to another thread on this forum, I have read nearly all of them.

Right not sure where to begin really so hope all this will make sense.............

Bought this computer over the weekend

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MEWN:IT&ih=016

Ive got some burning software by the name of MySonicDVD on the PC but when trying to load it up comes up DMA disabled, well ive done everything to inable it....no joy.........so thought ive got Nero 5 somewhere, dug that out installed it and tried to use that, but it first came up couldnt be used as not correct bundle package (or something similiar), then manage to get sort of somewhere but it didnt like the fact it was an .avi.

So I remembered seeing a thread other day and DVD Flick was mentioned...........so yesterday dug out a DVD+RW to try it out, well I was a little dense so after about 2 hours, had to re-do it (please dont ask why as I was having a very bad blonde moment). Anyhow re-started the process, had to leave it as went to work, came home YIPPEEE it worked but took from 12.30pm until the OH came in, he couldnt use the puter as had slowed right down and it finally finished at 7pm.

Now nearly 7 hours to burn a dvd hmmmm, ive not got much of a life but a little bit of one to not waste 7 hours a time.

So can anyone help, recommend anything........tell me what I maybe doing wrong, or just call me thick I dont mind just some help guys/girlies.

Thank you

Edit * It seems there are some slight differences between the one the bloke advertises to the one I have*
 

A:my dvd has taken 7 hours to burn

I couldn't get your link to come up, but if I've got it right you are trying to burn a large .avi file, and you are getting messages from the system that you have DMA turned off to the DVD burner? Try this article to see how to turn on DMA for the drive. Having a drive in PIO mode could slow down burning like you describe. You might also have a relatively slow DVD burner, and if you don't have a lot of system memory, burning a large file or mastering a dvd could take a while. It is also possible that the drive is bad or there are errors in the file you are burning. To get right to device manager as mentioned in the article: click on start, then run, then type devmgmt.msc

Remove Gigabyte EasyTune, Gigabyte Easy Saver and 360 security guard/360 Security Center, they caused BSODs

Upgrade your Bluetooth Bluesoleil software, you have an obsolete version

   Information
Please remove any CD virtualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%. They use a driver, found in your dmp, sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs. Use this SPTD uninstaller when you're done: DuplexSecure - Downloads

RELEVANCY SCORE 29.6

I am wondering how many hours of video I should be able to put on a single DVD+R before the video quality suffers a lot. I've never attempted more than the suggested 120 minutes so I just thought I'd try my luck here before possibly wasting a disc. Here is the specific info:

DVD:
Sony DVD+R
120 min/4.7 GB

Video files:
1 hour each; 700 MB
AVI Files
640x480 pixels
128kbps bit rate
MPEG Layer 3 audio format
29fps
XVID video compression

I was thinking that I could put 3 of these video files (3 hours of video) on just one DVD without much of a loss in quality. More? Less? Thanks in advance!
 

A:How many hours of video can I fit?

I put between 3 and 5 hours worth of video on each DVD disk when I burn them. I transfer files from my TIVO to my PC and then burn them as MPEG to play on my portable DVD player at the gym. Picture quality is pretty good even when I record on my TIVO at the lowest quality setting.

Regards,
Rollin
