Will Not Stay Off Automatic restart

Q: Will Not Stay Off Automatic restart

I am working on my friends Dell Inspiron 570 it will turn off. It goes through the proper shutdown sequence and goes off for about 2 seconds then kicks back on automatically. I have turned off the wake up on LAN activity setting, I have also scanned for viruses. It is running Win 7, 6 gigs of ram, and an Athlon II X4 630 2.8 processor. I have also downloaded the newest bios form dell's site as well as chipset drivers. Any help would be appreciated.


Also I forgot to mention I tried a new power supply as well.

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.)

A: Will Not Stay Off Automatic restart

To confirm...please do the following:

Start Menu > Shut down

Does it still reboot instead of just shut down?

What happens when you actually tell it to reboot?

Hello everyone,

I have searched around a bit to see if others have ran into this problem, but I have had no luck so far. When I start my computer, it pops up with the standard menu it uses when an OS error has caused a restart. I can't get it too load windows using safe mode, last known good configuration, or normal mode. I never even see the windows loading screen, it restarts immediately.

Here is what I have tried:
1) I ran a check disk using the recovery console but it did not fix the problem.
2) I manually backed up the SYSTEM, SAM, DEFAULT, SECURITY, and SOFTWARE files from the root\windows\system32\config folder. I then replaced those files with ones from a few days ago located in the root\system volume information\ folder. It did not fix my problem.
3) I'm about to re-install windows when I decide to press f8 on boot and disable automatic restarts on system failure just to see if I'm missing some sort of BSOD. Windows completely loaded without any problems.
4) This confused me so I reversed the actions I took in step 2 (above) just to see whether it would boot with the original files as long as I chose "Disable Automatic Restarts on System Failure." It loaded windows without a problem.
5) I restarted to see whether it would boot normally or not. Again, it wouldn't load windows with any options other than the "Disable automatic restarts on system failure" option.

At this point, I'm pretty confused. Could the OS be mistakin... Read more

i keep encounter this auto restart error therefore i decided to uncheck the automatic restart checkbox in system properties to get a BSOD so that i know what happen, but even if i uncheck it, my cpu still auto restart without generating a BSOD

i also checked my windows folder but there are no \Windows\Minidump in it

A:Auto restart even if uncheck automatic restart

Upload Dump Files:
Please go to C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up the contents of the folder. Then upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.
Left click on the first minidump file.
Hold down the "Shift" key and left click on the last minidump file.
Right click on the blue highlighted area and select "Send to"
Select "Compressed (zipped) folder" and note where the folder is saved.
Upload that .zip file with your next post.

If you have issues with "Access Denied" errors, try copying the files to your desktop and zipping them up from there. If it still won't let you zip them up, post back for further advice.

If you don't have anything in that folder, please check in C:\Windows for a file named MEMORY.DMP. If you find it, zip it up and upload it to a free file hosting service - then post the link to it.
Then, follow the directions here to set your system for Minidumps (much smaller than the MEMORY.DMP file): Set MiniDump

Recently, my PC has been shutting itself down (as in powering down) and rebooting seconds later. This started out at random times, both in use and completely idle, but it's got progressively more frequent to the point where my PC can now no longer stay on for more than 10 minutes, sometimes shutting off before I even get a chance to log in. I've been intensively and ultimately hopelessly troubleshooting for days now. Here's a list of what I have discovered:

I've replaced my PSU.
I've checked for overheating and even replaced the CPU cooler.
I've run memtest86 and all tests were passed.
I've unplugged all nonessential hardware.
I've plugged the PC into a different power socket.
I've run DSKCHK.
I attempted to run two virus scanners from booting them from CDs, but my PC shut down, although it was fine for the memtest, and stayed on for an hour in the BIOS settings without shutting off.
I used the command prompt on the Windows 7 disk to scan for errors. None found.
I've switched out my mouse and keyboard.

Despite all of the above, the problem still persists. However, my system APPEARS to run fine in safe mode.

Anybody got any thoughts at all?

A:Automatic shutdowns and reboots. Can't stay on for more than 15 minute

My initial thoughts would be overheating, I know you have changed your cooler but have you actually monitored temperatures from power up to a reboot to see if they are progressively rising ?
If it is an overheating issue then you would expect power up time to be at its best following a cold boot decreasing after reboot as machine is already warm

Check event viewer and see if you can get any clues as to why the machine is shutting, check for errors immediately prior to a shutdown

I finally paid for an Antivirus software yesterday.
I bought and now I am trying to install McAfee Anitivirus Plus 2010.
It would not install so I contacted McAfee and they told me that windows has to be updated.
I have a Dell Dimension 1100 that came loaded with Windows XP Home.

I have scoured the net to try to fix this problem on my own.
Here is what I have tried, but all have been unsuccessful.

I went to Microsoft.com and tried to update.
I got the "0x8DDD0018" error that says I should turn on Automatic Updates.
So I tried to turn it on by going to services.msc and setting it to automatic and pressing start.
I also did this with Background Intelligent Transfer Service and Event History.
Automatic Updates was set to "DISABLED" and "STOPPED", so I set it to automatic and started it.
I started the update from Microsoft.com an after about 15-20 seconds, the Automatic Updates status went to STOPPING and then to STOPPED.

I then tried to re-register the service by START>RUN "regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll"
It said that it was successful, but I still have the same problem.

I have tried these things about 20 times with the same results

Any ideas???

Thank you,

Whenever I try to "shut down" the computer only restarts. If I press the power button once, it restarts. If I go to start "Shut Down" it restarts. No matter how I try to turn off the computer it restarts. I've even tried choosing "restart" from the start menu. The computer will only restart. The only way I can completely turn off the computer is to hold down the power button. I'm not getting a blue screen or any errors on reboot. Its as if it completely and successfully shut down and the little mouse in my pocket pushed the power button when I'm not looking.

I am using Windows XP. Recently, I downloaded a couple of tweak programs to try and help my system performance. I then realized that I could do most of the tweaks myself without the programs so I removed them. I've gotten everything back to the way I want except that my desktop and quicklaunch icons will not stay in the arrangement I want after I restart my computer. They always did before I installed the tweak programs. Is there a way to lock the icons? Also how can I get the quicklaunch to show at startup? I have to manually open it every time I restart. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I have to read a lot of PDF's, the problem is obviously if I have to restart or turn off my PC, when I re-open them, they are back at the beginning. I can just put the last page number I was reading in the filename, which I do, but I just wondered if there was a quicker way, a way to make them stay put.

A:How can I make my PDF's stay open even after restart?

This is for Adobe Reader 9.

1. Click Edit and select Preferences.

2. When the Preferences window appears, choose the category named Documents.

3. In the right section of the window, there will be a section labeled "Open Settings." Click the box next to Restore last view settings when reopening documents.

The document will retain the view settings every time it is opened.

From the Edit menu, choose Accessibility and then Setup Assistant. Choose to configure the options yourself, and then scroll through all 5 pages of them. On the very last page you'll see a check box that says "reopen documents to the last viewed page". Select it and you're done.

Hi, this has been an ongoing problem on multiple computers. This has happened on IE 6 and IE 7 (XP & 2000) where a user will go to websites, then restart the computer, and the next time they access IE, their history is gone (to an extent, see attachment). I've reinstalled IE a few times, ran updates, increased disk space for Temp. Internet Files, and increased days to keep history to 99 (instead of the default of 20). I've noticed that there is always a share in the history ex: \\pc1033\c$ (see picture), even though the user has NEVER typed that in and it's not a mapped drive on the PC.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

I'm running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 on a HP Media Center PCm7170n

I have ran several virus scanners such as Kaspersky Internet Security and AVG Anti Virus and defraggged and scanned my hard drive.

My computer seems that whenever it is idle it will reboot. I'm not even getting the dialog box that countdowns and asks me to reboot. I will leave my computer and when i come back sometimes within 5 minutes it will have reboot. Doesn't matter what program I have up and running. As long as I am working on the computer it does not reboot. But if i walk away, it will have. It even rebooted while i was running Zone Alarm and had the security set on the highest setting.

It doesn't seem to do it at any specific time, as in if i have a particular program up and running. It doesn't matter it will reboot whether i have nothing running or all messengers and p2p running. It reboots either way

Both virus scanners have come up with nothing. Any suggestions?

I think more details would be in order here. Particularly, what are you specifically doing on the PC when it automatically restarts?

Also, did this start recently or has it been happening for a while?

Hello to anyone who can give me a hand.
I was using safe mode to do my virus scan, etc..., and when i rebooted
into regular windows there were no users on the welcome screen, except
for the "Administrator" account thats supposed to only show up in safe
mode. (i have my other regular admin account hidden, so it doesn't
show up anyways, otherwise it would have), and all the limited
accounts are hidden. I fixed using system restore, but when i simply
go into safe mode, login, click restart, its back to the problem.
I am running Windows XP sp2.

These are all the other things that are screwed up after returning to
regular Windows XP, but I think they all point to that windows still
thinks its in safe mode after the restart:
-all accounts show Windows Classic view (the grey start bar, etc)
-screen resolution is at regular resolution, not the one from safe
mode (which is samller)
-no accounts show up on welcome screen, except for the Administrator,
as mentioned.
-able to logon to limited and admin account using ctrl-alt-del method
at welcome screen.
-no services are loaded, except for the same ones that load in safe
mode (theyre the same ones that are running in safe mode, i checked):
-wont let me connect to internet/network.
-startup programs load, but my antivirus (Antivir) has its umbrella

Dear Forum Users,

I have two HDs in my system:

1. WD Caviar Blue 500GB (OS Drive)
2. WD Caviar Green 1TB

I've read that enabling write-caching may speed up drive performance. I checked on my 1TB drive, it was already enabled. On my 500GB drive though it was disabled.

So I then decided to enable write-caching on my 500GB drive. I proceeded to do so without any apparent problems. However after doing a system restart I saw that it went back to being disabled again.

I've tried this several times already, same thing each time!

Enable write caching restart write caching disabled again.

Does anyone have an idea why this is happening? How to fix this?

Hey everyone,

I have tried to look for a similar problem here at TSG, but I couldn't find one so I decided to post. I have a desktop computer that I got about a year ago, it's running XP Pro on Pentium 4 3.2GHz system, has 512 ram and I think a 200Gb HDD. Lately it has been restarting, usually when I try to, eg: listen to music and surf the web, which is nothing strenuous, especially for a computer which I thought was pretty good. All of a sudden though, it has just restarted itself and, and as soon as it gets to the Windows XP loading screen, it restarts again and again. I can never get past the XP loading screen. I have a lot of valuable information on the computer and so I was hoping that someone would be able to help me fix this issue without formatting if possible. I thought it may have had something to do with temperature, so I've gone into BIOS just after letting it restart itself once to monitor the temperature, when I went into it at first, the CPU temp was 39 degrees celsius, after five minutes it has gone up to 49. I've taken the both the case sides off to see if it helps, but the temp keeps rising. Do you think its related to temperature or something else??? ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Thanks a lot!

So, I've been having a bunch of problems with BSODs lately and I've been struggling to find the cause because even after disabling automatic restart in the system properties, the damn thing still restarts. All I get is the Windows Error Reporting service starting up when the computer reboots and telling me my computer just Blue Screened. I'm pretty sure I could figure out what it is (I already know it's not RAM, because I ran memtest on it for 13 hours with no results) if I just could get at that error code on the blue screen, but that's hard to do when you never even see it.

A:Disabling automatic restart

We need to know more about your BSODs...Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)No installation required.Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program and When scanning is done, go to Edit > Select All.Then go to File > Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.Compliments of Broni

i have a Dell Vostro 1000 with Windows XP Home SP2

every time i log in, like normal, my desktop begins to load up. Halfway through loading up, i get an error message and my computer begins to count down from 60 seconds. After the 60 seconds, it restarts.

because i only have 60 seconds, i do not have time to access most programs, and therefore, i cannot post a HiJack This log.

the error message says:
This system is shutting down. Please save all
work in progress and log off. Any unsaved
changes will be lost. This shutdown was
Time before shutdown: 00:00:60

Windows must now restart because the
Remote Procedure Call(RPC) service
terminated unexpectedly.
please respond ASAP
