Restart problem

Q: Restart problem

Hey all,

Whenever I install a program that reboots (offers to and I select yes) the computer, or whenever I use the start menu to restart the computer, it restarts, but when I get to the login screen, it's locked up, can't move the mouse or anything. I hit the restart button on the front panel and everything is fine. Any ideas as to what it might be?


Preferred Solution: Restart problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Recently I've been having a problem with my PC: it restarts for no apparent reason, especially when I initiate some task such as opening a new webpage or program. It started a few weeks ago and I thought nothing of it, as my PC has a tendency to miraculously find its way into--and then back out of--the weirdest situations. But it got to the point on Friday at which I couldn't use it at all. So, thinking it may have been a virus of some sort, I went ahead and formatted my hard drive. I was running only one hard drive with an OS, so if there was a virus it would be on there, and a format would solve my problem. I soon found that the problems were persisting, and soon it got so problematic that I couldn't even boot the computer up at all. The first time I would start it it would tell me that my CPU frequencies were badly adjusted before and ask me to reset them. Then I would do that and when I saved and exited, the computer would leave me with a blank screen. Fiddling with the BIOS, I eventually figured out thtat setting the CPU-RAM frequency ratio to 1:1 instead of "auto" let me get farther. Once I had got past the initial boot screen, I was presented with this message:

Hello, I hope you can help.

Newly built PC with the following specs

Ryzen 5 3600
MSI x570 A Pro
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070,
2 X 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR4
Seasonic 750w gold PSU

When installing windows 10 it ran into problems and it would not complete installation, after several attempts it worked and ended up partitioning my hard drive numerous times so I have windows.old1, windows.old2 etc.

It would not allow me to install OS on SSD so it is on the HDD. Unsure why this was.

Windows installed and everything is recognized as it should be.

Ran a few games, Runescape, Elder Scrolls, Siege but it crashes sometimes within seconds of loading the game and restarts the PC after showing the blue screen ' Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart.'

Any ideas why this could be? I don't think it can be over heating as it doesnt get past 45 and inside feels very cool. But I am new to this so not too sure.

I have also updated drivers to latest versions.

Anything else I can try? PC works perfect on general internet etc it is just as soon as a game is loaded it kicks me out.

Should I try a hard reset and try reinstall windows no SSD?

Thanks, any help is much appreciated!

Hi. hope this is in the correct place.

Whenever I install software and it says in order to complete the install you must restart your computer, the system will not restart untill I press the shutdown button in order to turn it off and back on again.

A shutdown occurs and a screen comes up with the option to press F2 to goto set up. This screen then goes away and re-appears without the option visible. the proccess then just hangs until I press the off button then turn the pc on again when it re boots normally and all is ok.

The same thing happens when clicking on "restart" from the start button.

The system will boot up ok from cold and everything else on the pc is "normal" The problem occurs whether Hibernate is on or off (I normally switch this off) and whether sleep is activated or not.

windows 7 64bit service pack 1 installed fully updated.

Any ideas appreciated

Hi,For about 3 months now my laptop keeps restarting at random, sometimes several times in a span of few minutes, sometimes it?s ?restart free? for several hours, but then it happens again and is accompanied by a loud pop. I?ve tried everything that I could think of (reinstalling system, drivers etc), but nothing seems to help. The problems seem to escalate when I run games, even those that do not require powerful specs such as old rpgs. One thing that I can think of that could have caused this is that I used to have a lot of tabs opened in chrome and that could put a strain on the laptop. I understand that this is probably not enough to come up with a solution so please tell me what kind of data should I supply.  Thank You

Win 7 build 7260
Acer Aspire X3200
Athlon dual core 4050e
NVIDIA GeForce 8200

This problem occurred with RC too (which is why I 'upgraded' and reinstalled):

If the PC does a 'Restart', it gets stuck on the 'Starting Windows' screen (i.e. the animated Windows logo fails to appear). I then have to hold down the power button to shut down. When I restart manually, the 'Starting Windows' screen and animated Windows logo appear fine, but then I get the choice to either 'Launch Startup Repair (Recommended)' or 'Start Windows Normally'. I choose 'Start Windows Normally' and all is well.

Any ideas on why I can't do a 'Restart'? (Shut Downs are fine btw)

first welcome to SF
did you do a clean install or upgrade?
At some point you might want to consider doing a repair. It might get rid of the restart problem
If you want to try and diagnose it. go to start type event in search and click on the event viewer. see if there are any errors there relating to this problem, and if so using the snipping tool upload a snip of a couple.

Hope this helps

Hello! First of all, sorry if I posted in the wrong section, but I am new to this forum and I kinda need a little help.
So, two days ago I started experiencing a problem with my PC. I turn it ON and after about 5-10 it restarts and gives me the message ""Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". If I just turn it off and on again, it works fine. But still this is very annoying.
I tried to look up this error on the internet, but I couldn`t find anything useful.
So, what can it be the problem ?

PS: This thing started two days ago when I bought a new USB wired mouse. Could this be the problem?

Hi Guys - I have just bought a new hard drive, formatted it, done a clean install of Windows XP Home and service pack 2, but now whenever I go to restart the machine it comes up with 'Error loading operating system'. It boots normally from being turned off. Basically, 'C' is set as Drive 0 (which is set as first in boot priorities with no other booting devices) and I have a second hard drive 'E' as Drive 1. I looked in disk management and C was set as 'system' while E was 'active'. Could it be anything to do with this?

You have to push the reset button on the case or completely shut the system down via the power button. The HJT forum suggested I run this command: sfc /scannow. It requests for me to insert the Windows XP installation disk. The PC was purchased for me in another state. The Windows XP software was not given to me at this time.

Hello. I have an Asus A8n SLI deluxe mobo. with an AMD athlon 64 3700 2.20 ghz cpu. I just built this computer but am having troubles. The computer starts up fine. However, the computer will not restart, when i attempt to restart from windows, the monitor and keyboard turn off and i can hear the computer still running. THen i have to turn the entire computer off manually. It will turn back on, but no response from monitor and keyboard. I then have to turn it off again. And the only way to turn it back on with the monitor and keyboard working, is to take out the mobo battery. It does not turn back on without taking out the mobo battery. When I turn off the computer from windows, it shuts down fine. But i have to keep the mobo battery out for it to all start backup again. Also, when I attempt to go into the BIOS setup andmake changes, when I press Exit and Save changes the monitor and keyboard shut off but the computer is still on. If I press exist and discard changes then it continues to start up perfectly. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!!!! Thank you

Hello and welcome to techspot

I think most probably is your BIOS settings problem arise because when you restart the computer, the computer are entering BIOS settings and probably the settings were screwed so u need to reset it (by removing the battery).

Have you checked your BIOS settings? Any weird values or options there?
It might be a gpu settings error in the bios.

Whenever i attempt to use my video driver in more then a standard way (viewing a video, playing a game like warcraft 3) the computer flickers and restarts. I turned off restart at system failure, and the error message was stop 0x00000050 or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA. The associated dll file causing the corruption is sisgrv.dll, which i believe is my video driver. I tried to reinstall the video driver of mobo manufacturer website, but it did not help at all. The processor is an amd athlon xp 2800+, 1 gig of ram, asrock k7s41. I bought the computer several months ago and it had been working find up until now. I ran a pc doctor thing (pc mighty max, the demo version) and it gave me some errors, the only severe one is that theres a corrupt start up file in the system32 folder (dumprep 0 or something to that effect). You have to pay to have it repair the problem, so i havent done that yet. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

A:Restart Problem

If the problem is limited to a dll file in the system32 folder, you can enter your windows disk, boot from it and go into the recovery console.
Do a copy of the file from the disk and write over ther corrupt file, this should fix that much of the problem.

The problem started when I reformatted my computer. All went smoothly up until I tried to install WoW(World of Warcraft), where it kept getting an error on the third disc. After doing some reading on WoW forums about installation problems, I found a common error was a RAM problem and that I should copy all the install files to the HD, and install from there. I do this, but now the computer restarts about halfway through the installation. (The computer also restarted while browsing the internet trying to install with cd's). The computer did have some problems with restarting when I first got the computer, but then it stopped and never restarted spontaniously again until after the reformation. So far (from advice I found on other similar posts on this website) I've tried changing the RAM frequency to 166mhz, down from 200. I've also tried moving the two sticks of ram around (2x256), from their original position (1 & 3) to slots 1 and 2. This didn't work. Then I tried switching the two sticks, which didn't work either. The next step I'm going to take is to try and put one stick in at a time, in each of the three slots. If that doesn't work, I'm going to grab a stick of ram from my other computer, and try it in the problem computer to see if its a problem with the actual Ram sticks. Anyone have any idea why my computer is randomly restarting (only during the installation of WoW, and while browsing the internet).

I was in the bios settings overclocking it to 3.4ghz and i saved the settings and closed bios and the pc restarted ok, i then tested it by restarting a few times and it was successful, so i went back into bios and put the settings back to normal and closed bios and guess what the same problem.

To fix this, all i done was go back into bios and changed the multiplier and voltage option from auto to x15.5 3.10ghz (which is the default multiplier and speed etc) and closed bios and restarted happily without any more hassle. When i have multiplier and voltage set to auto the default is x15.5 3.10ghz.

Any ideas ppl?????/

A:restart problem

Hello saud alam

1. At which point of the bootup process does it shut down?
Is it after the manufacturer`s splashscreen, or after the XP logo, or where?

2. Have you tried booting into Safe Mode?

3. Has anything just been installed or updated?

4. Have any changes at all just been made?

5. Are there any error messages?

So heres the deal, I have a multitude of problems from the computer I have built myself. It used to run fine but for a while its been having trouble. It will freeze randomly, and in trying to fix this problem I may have made things worse. I cannot get my computer to boot properly. Ill start it and it will work but whenever I try and run a tool that checks for problems on restart once it powers down it fails to boot up. Nothing no screen flashes no nothing. When I try to run system restore it gives me an error "Catastrophic Error ( cyclic error) something like that. I really would like to get this fixed, I've put a lot of money into this computer. I feel like if I could just get it to be able to restart I could try and fix the problem easier.

I have a problem, I'm new here I hope this is the right board to post it.

Pc loses power and restarts, this happens mostly while I'm watching stuff on VLC player, sometimes while doing nothing.

never happened while playing games.

I did a stability test for a few minutes and I'm posting the results. Maybe someone can spot something out of the ordinary.

The way the pc restarts makes me think its a voltage problem. But I'm no expert so I'm not sure.

my spec:


any help is appreciated

Help! I used my computer on Saturday-no problem, went to start it up yesterday and I get a prompt that says "preparing automatic repair" then it goes to a blue screen that says, your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We'll restart for you.
You can search online later for this error: FAT_FILE_SYSTEM as well as NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM.

It does this over and over, never goes to another screen or anything.
What can I do to fix this? I googled some other forums and have tried F8 and restarting, pulling battery and nothing worked. I left it up overnight to see if it just had to do it's thing for a few hours and woke up to it doing the same thing.
I do have windows 10, it automatically updated about a month ago. Computer is a Toshiba Satellite C55-B5200. I am not very computer detailed, I know a bit about them but not all of this technical stuff.

Anyone have any suggestions!? Thanks in advance!!

I've AMD Athlon 3600+ on Asus A8N-E Motherboard with 1GB RAM.
I've installed Win7 a couple of weeks ago and it worked just fine until yesterday, when the restart problem appeared: when I try to restart the machine, it shuts down all programs and windows, but it won't restart the hardware - it hangs on the black screen, when the monitor displays "no signal", but there's no actual restart. On the first time when I push the restart button on the PC nothing happens, and only on the second push the system restarts.

I don't even know if it's a software problem, or my motherboard tricks me...

Thanks in advance!

Hi rainbringer, welcome to the forums.

Firstly what software have you recently installed? More importantly, AntiVirus, some have been known to halt the Shutdown/Restart process. Also, what build of Windows 7 are you using?

This info could be invaluable when it comes to helping solve your issue

hey guys,

my computer boots fine from being turned off, but if I ever try to restart it comes up with 'A disk-read error occured, press Ctrl-Alt-Delete to restart'. If i restart exactly the same thing happens and there's no way out without physically turning it off and booting from there.

Any ideas? I'm running XP home and have 2 hard drives C and F.

A:restart problem

check your temps and voltages with speedfan
download and run the h/d manufacturers dionostic utility on the hard drive
if it comes up clear run
chkdsk /r
when you restart go into the bios and see if it is still seeing the c drive it may be a faulty cable

A:pc run into a problem and need to restart

I'm the same message, and I've also noticed a couple things out of place...
First is that I'm getting lousy internet speed, and I know it's not just the browser. I like playing games on Steam, and this was where I noticed the laggy internet.
Normally, I get somewhere around 1.8-1.9 Mb/s. Last time a few of my games updated, they got up to around 300+ Kb/s and dwindled down to literally nothing. I'm going to run a virus scan, but just in case it doesn't turn anything up, I find it wise to share.
Next, is that I was looking through the problem reports, and found a report for a driver that seems to be otherwise non-existent on my laptop. (Mine's an ASUS K55A, by-the-by.) The driver was Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver. I looked through programs and settings, Device Manager, and even through my entire C drive! (With the hidden files and folders showing, of course.)
I looked it up, and apparently, it's getting problems everywhere. Maybe I'm looking at the wrong sources, but my laptop runs without it, so I'm not entirely convinced that I need to install it.
Anywho, I'm wondering if that's anything to do with it in my case, or not.
Also, I figure I should share that it's usually when I leave my laptop open with any more than two items running. It doesn't seem to matter what Items, although Chrome is usually in the mix.

I was working at my computer and suddenly a blue screen popped up (see screenshots). (UGH!).
This comps about 9 months old, maybe. I know they can fail out of the box. I'm on my little tablet to post this.
It's been on this screen that says it needs to gather data then will restart, saying 100% complete, for over 30 minutes now, and it hasn't restarted.
What should I do?
On the blue screen at the very bottom, it reads:
What failed: igdkmd64.sys
Windows did that long April update the other day, and I suspect this is related to that.
Unfortunately when I got the computer, I wasn't able to create a back up because shortly after that my external hard drive crashed. I've just gotten another one, but this happened before I could contact you all, to learn how to do back up (since it says back up for windows 7 though this refurbished came with windows 10 OS), so I don't have a back up.

What do I do. Clearly she's not going to restart like the screen says. Seems I have no choice but to say a prayer and hit the power button....but wanted to check here first.

Hello, I need help. My windows xp computer keeps restarting itself constantly. I will turn the computer on and as soon as I log in my account for xp, the computer will restart. It will continue to restart until, after many restarts, it will finally shut down completely only to turn back on if I leave the power cord unpluged for a few hours. Sometimes it will even begin restarting even if I don't log in, it will constantly restart from the xp login screen. I'm not sure what is causing the problem and any information will help, thank you.

I have a Aspire 7720 That is restarting with no warning or reason. It will typically happen if I am running some type of video application but not always. It even shut down when I ran the batch file mentioned below. It has also shut down when in sleep mode (I come back to the black screen that says "windows encountered a problem" and I have the typical re start options Safe mode etc) I have run temp software and the temp has never reached above 67 degrees. I have taken the liberty of running the batch file that JCGRIFF2 recomded in another post dealing with the same problem.
Any help you can give would help me greatly!
