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.)

Problem: When I run CSGO from Steam I crash a couple of seconds in of playing. I've been playing for a while (2months) and now recently (today) the problem seems to reboot consistently after a couple of seconds. Desktop experience is fine, no crashes or random reboots there, yet (surfing).
 
Furthermore, I was getting NO BSODs to get the errors (logs were turned on). I turned 'Automatic Restart' from off to on and recreated the crash but still no BSODs, so unsure if it actually packed up via Sysnative.

OS - Windows7 x64 OEM

A:Multiple Restarts when playing game couple of seconds in - No BSODs

So your computer is rebooting after a couple of seconds of the game being launched or is the game crashing back to your desktop?

My computer occasionally restarts itself or shuts down. Sometimes it will do a complete restart and I only know it because the Active Desktop Recovery screen is on my desktop suddenly. Sometimes it will freeze and the monitor will go black and flash an error message intermittently ("No input signal" message) after which I can no longer manually restart or shut down the computer, but instead have to turn it off and back on using the main power switch at the back of the tower. Sometimes it will restart but stop at the first black screen to alert me with the statement "S.M.A.R.T. status bad backup and replace error..." and asking me to press F1 to continue (I have an extra HD but moved files off it some time ago). The computer will restart/shutdown/freeze as little as once per day or as often as every 10 minutes if I am doing something like playing in foobar2000 or have photoshop open, anything I happen to enjoy, it seems . I cannot pinpoint these programs as culprits, only that I've noticed that the pc will absolutely do something when foobar2000 is running, for example. It shuts down at seemingly random times too.

Windows XP Pro Version 2002 SP 2, Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.60 GHz 992 MB of RAM, Avast antivirus.

Hello,
I am having some serious problems with my PC. It freezes, speakers are sometimes making a RRRRRR noise (last package of bits sent to speakers, I think, being "produced" over and over again), sometimes it just restarts, then it freezes in bootup (even in BIOS or in POST, just EVERYWHERE), sometimes the image on display gets "shattered" (as if the original image, the last frame displayed, got mixed up in lines and squares of different colors), sometimes it freezes in BSOD (that's hillarious), I could go on and on. I am almost sure my motherboard is faulty, but I consider this my "last hope" before making a complaint and trying to get a new mobo. I hope I did everything right (regarding the BSOD reporting protocols).

OS specs: Win 7 x64 Ultimate, OEM, hardware is mostly new (half a year, but one GPU is 3 years old nad my optical drive is 4 y.o.), OS installation is 3 weeks old.

P.S.: I do have Avast antivirus even though in System health report there is "no anti-virus detected" (dunno why), and as you may have noticed, English is not my first language, therefore I apologize for any errors and you may also find some stuff written in Czech in the BSOD regarding files.

I have checked the hardware side (my processor, RAM, HDD, Video card, psu all seem to be OK. All of the drivers should be up to date. I have attached the BSOD report (hopefully I did it correctly.)

You uploaded the application instead of the results please try this method.

If you wish to have others assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
* Briefly describe the problem history and circumstances in the same post. Somebody will attend to your query as soon as possible.

Hello there, I'm having a few problems with my computer that I've been unable to figure out on my own. Starting a few months ago my computer began getting a few BSODs, typically while playing The Sims 3. Over time the computer would also restart on it's own with no BSOD, or sometimes just freeze completely. And even when I do get a BSOD, it's not always the same error. Now it happens even when I'm not gaming, and it occurs roughly every other day or so. In fact today I had 3 incidents where the computer seemed to shut off completely. The 3rd time it did that, the fan came on afterwards as if the computer was trying to restart, but that was it. Needless to say I'm a bit concerned and confused as to what's causing the problem.

If anyone can help out it would be greatly appreciated. I've included an attachment with everything this thread says I would need.

Just a bit of a heads up:

- Windows XP was originally installed, I installed Windows 7 last August or September
- The computer as a whole is roughly 3.5 years old, though some bits(like my sound card and video card) are newer

Hello All - please let me say thanks in advance for any assistance. I completed the system specs form when I set up my account.

I have an HP Pavilion p6540f with the following:
windows 7 prof 64-bit SP1,
8GB RAM,
two 1TB Seagate hard drives,
an AMD Phenom cpu,
an ATI Radeon HD 4200 graphics card
a Foxconn motherboard.

My problem is BSODs, spontaneous reboots or system freezes. Based on what I've seen on the internet, there seem to be several areas which could cause such a problem: something wrong with the RAM, overheating, or underpowered, the graphics driver, or something in the BIOS that needs upgrading.

As for the memory, I burned memtest to a cd and booted from that and let memtest run over night to check the RAM. It came back with no errors.

As to the overheating and underpowered possibilities, there is a CPU fan, a case fan and the fans associated with the power supply. The case fan and cpu fan seem to be functioning normally. I had the original 250W power supply replaced with a new 350W power supply which also seems to be functioning normally.

As far as the BIOS is concerned, it's AMI v6.04, dated 5/21/2010. There is a file available from HP, and that I've downloaded, called sp49851.exe. This is supposed to upgrade the BIOS to v6.09. I thought upgrading would be good since one of the things it's supposed to fix is a problem related to the machine not coming out of hibernation which sounds similar to what I've been experiencing.

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

Hi,
It used to be rather erratic and happen only once every couple of days, then I would sometimes have stretches as long as a week or more without any crashes but recently I've been having them systematically at EVERY startup!
 
I start my computer, it will usually boot up into Windows 10 Pro 64bit and then I rarely have to wait more than a few minutes for it to freeze or suddenly restart (more rarely a BSOD). Then starts a cycle of a few more restarts and freezes - always happening almost instantly or after a few minutes - before it eventually stabilizes and can then run reliably for the rest of the day!?
 
This is why I've ruled out temperature problems as it would seem the reverse would happen, i.e. crashing AFTER sufficient time was given to the system to heat up.
 
I have run 2 passes of MemTest without any errors but I've heard that as many as 10 might be needed to reliably exclude RAM problems but seeing how slow it runs the test on my 12Gb of memory, I couldn't be without my PC for that long!? 
 
Other useful troubleshooting info: I've recently upgraded to Win 10 in hope of solving my problems - it was already happening under Win 7. It's a 2nd PC I bought off ebay some +- 2 years ago so I don't know how old exactly it is but you'll see the specs in the attached files I guess.
 
Some of the BSOD errors I collected are (from oldest to most recent):

Hi,

First off thanks for reading my post. Basically my computer keeps having errors and they are nothing specific - nothing seems to set them off. Sometimes I'll be working and the computer will just freeze, or restart automatically. Often programs (especially the Windows ones such as Media Player, Live Messenger and IE explorer) will keep crashing with the error report dialog box. I have just reinstalled Windows so it can't be that.

A:Random crashes, restarts, freezes, BSODs help please!!

Since you've just installed windows, you might have a hardware issue and you can try the following if you're sort of a hands-on type or get a knowledgeable friend such as a Geek to help
(1)Fan failure on the cpu or video card causing high temps. If fans appear to running full speed and no strange noises then possibly:
(2)Memory stick failure. If you have 2 ram sticks, try removing one at a time to isolate the issue. If you only have one stick, memory is relatively cheap so buy another 1 gb and repalce it. If you still have same failures, put original stick back in and now will have 2 gb to improve performance once PC is fixed..

Hi,

I'm getting frequent crashes on my HTPC in Windows 7 usually without a blue screen of death (I have had maybe one or two BSODs). Sometimes the computer will crash almost as soon as I switch it on (i.e. when I'm using internet explorer), sometimes it crashes when watching a bluray in media center and sometimes when doing nothing at all.

The system was stable, however about 5 months ago I installed a new CPU and cooler, and about a month or so later I started getting these problems. I have tried the following:

- Virus scan
- Memory check (memtest86 multiple passes)
- CPU stress test (prime95)
- Hard drive check disk
- Graphics card stress (furmark)

The graphics card did show signs of overheating and the PC crashed shortly afterwards, however I have since tried the onboard graphics card and the problems are still there. The fact that the PC can crash shortly after booting also suggests its not this.

I can only think of three things that it can now be:

- Power supply (no idea how to test this, the power supply is a good quality Corsair, with more than enough power for the components and like I said, the system used to be stable).
- Motherboard (could be this I guess - potentially I damaged it when I installed the new CPU)
- Windows 7 (hence the reason I'm here!)

In trying to fix the PC I have used a registry fixer by a reputable company (I forget which one).

I have a Compaq Presario SRF710F that has been working fine (except for the past few weeks) since December 2008. The only hardware I've replaced on it was to install a more powerful video card a few years ago.

In the past few weeks, it's started giving me random failures. Sometimes it's a BSOD (the actual error message varies most times), sometimes the whole computer freezes up and I have to restart manually, and sometimes it just turns off suddenly and reboots. Sometimes it goes a few days between errors, and sometimes it can't even finish rebooting from a failure before another one occurs.

It started a few weeks ago when I uninstalled iTunes and installed Samsung Kies and Media Monkey (ditched the iPhone for a Galaxy S3!).

I have taken the following steps:restore from restore point
deep antivirus scan with MWB and MSE
memtest86 (11 passes with no errors detected)
reinstall Windows

Here are some other specs:
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate, 32 bit

I've also uploaded the zip file from the SF diagnostic tool.

Thanks in advance for your help!

For the past few weeks, my computer has been experiencing a couple of different failures. Sometimes it freezes up (including the mouse), sometimes it BSODs (different error messages at different times), and sometimes it just shuts off and restarts, as if the power had been momentarily cut. Sometimes it goes a few days between failures, and sometimes it happens multiple times an hour.

I've tried the following:

update drivers
restore from restore point from before the problem started
memtest86 (ran 11 times with no errors)
reinstall Windows

Here are the specs from the TSG SysInfo:

Hi there. For the past week, I've been getting some random BSODs, some freezes, and sometimes just a random restart. there is a flash of a pixelated screen, and then it just restarts. This computer is nigh on two years old, and has showed no sign whatsoever of slowness or any malfunction. Yet for the past week or so, it's been randomly crashing and getting restarted. Specs
-Intel Pentium Dual Core processor. 3 GHz.
-ATI Radeon graphic card. 1 GB.
-2GB RAM.
-320 GB storage space.
-HP Pavilion CPU.
-Desktop PC

I would upload the dump files, but honestly, it crashes by the time i press the copy button. i am attempting to get them using the homegroup from this computer.
anyway, i would really appreciate some help.

Hello. Im a norwegian and have already written much about this problem in norwegian. Im not really good at english. So I can't write all that I've written to Zepto and on a norwegian forum. But I will atleast give you the logfiles...

Not every BSOD seems to have created a log file, some BSODs dont seem to dump properly for example. The BSOD's occur randomly. I can play several hours and end the game normal without problems or it can occur soon after startup without me even getting started up a browser. So personally I do not think this is a overheating problem, graphic card problem or cpu-problem.

I have searched with Vista's memory test, and memtest86. They found no errors and memtest passed 6 times the second time I tried to ran it. The first time I ran it, it froze during testing, so I had to restart and then it passed 6 times.

I have searched my PC with antivirus and found none. I have not been on any suspicious sites either.

The startup-problems is a pain when they occur. Like, last night. Bluescreen. Then I started it up again, but it didnt pass one of the boot up stages. It froze. So after I had waited a while I did a turn off, then I turned it on again. Black screen, 10 minutes, 15 minutes, still a black screen. I repeated this process 4-5 times, every time a black screen that didnt go away, the PC was on, but screen black and I couldnt hear any boot-up sound, only the fan.

Then after many tries, it worked, it booted up, but got a bluescreen during... Read more

Hi. . .

I would like the links to your other dumps. I see in photos & dumps that you are updated w/ Vista SP1. When did you update? One photo shows WERCON screen - TrustedInstaller crashing constantly since at least October 2nd. When did the system problems begin?

Can you run in SAFEMODE w/ any greater stability than normal windows boot-up?

Please run msinfo32 when possible & save in NFO format (NFO file extension). I am not sure if it will be in English or not - but OK for now.

Also, I'd like a Vista System Health report in HTML format. Please do the following:
START | type cmd.exe into the start search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Administrator | the black cmd prompt (DOS) screen will appear - type the following:

Code:
perfmon /report
It will take about a minute to run... then save it as an HTML file.

Please zip it & msinfo32 NFO file up and attach to your next post.

Regards. . .

Hi there this is my first post on these forums so apologies if I'm not too familiar with the layout. I'm not too computer savy so if anyone could try simplify any answers/solutions that would be great. Basically the problem is for the past few months around start up of windows 7 I was getting freezes, BSOD errors (in particular IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and Page_fault_in_non_paged_area being the main ones) and my pc would be in a continuous loop of booting then freezing or shutting down and I couldn't get the pc to work. I thought the problem could be corrupted windows files so I reinstalled windows onto my computer using the isntallation disk and installed drivers and all was working fine for around 4 days. Each day my windows would have importaint updates so I installed them when prompted. One day I all of a sudden started getting the same errors I got before, PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGEED_AREA and IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_NOT_EQUAL and no new software had been installed at this point. I have tested ram and my hard drive with no errors showing although when looking at properties of my computer I have 20GB of ram (16GB Available) not sure if this has anything to do with it (2 x 8 GB sticks 1 X 4 GB stick). Hopefully you guys can help me out and prevent me shelling out on a new rig. Thank you, Conor .

Hi, I have a very frustrating problem that just reared its ugly head last night. My computer started hesitating every few seconds, freezes, then starts the cycle all over again. It's difficult to do anything: browse the internet, use applications, or even type this post. I have not added any new hardware or programs recently except I upgraded Firefox last week but it has been running fine up until last night. Plus I uninstalled Firefox and it is still doing the same thing. I have Windows XP home version. So far I have deleted several programs and many other things from my computer that I could do without, I've checked my page file to see if it was correct and it was at the suggested amount, I scanned it with Norton's and it found no viruses, I scanned with Malbytes Anti-Malware and it found nothing infected, I opened up my hard drive case and cleaned/blew out the dust however it wasn't that dirty since I do this on occasion, I made sure my memory was not slipping out, I tried to defragment but my computer said that I do not need to at this time, I restored my computer back to a previous date. None of these things have made a difference. I was sure at least restoring it back would do the trick but it did not.
I'm confused to what the problem is and through my research can't seem to figure this one out on my own.
Does anyone have any suggestions or has anyone had similar problems?

hi,

windows 7 x64 on my laptop (intel core i5 @ 2.50ghz, 4 gb ram) has recently started freezing for a few seconds every few seconds, when i'm doing just about anything: browsing the web, copying files, using text redactor, etc. only the mouse cursor responds, control is back after a couple of seconds.

* the behaviour remains the same when booting in the safe mode
* there are no cpu or memory usage peaks in process explorer
* there are no hardware conflicts in device manager
* there are no critical errors in system log
* there is no antivirus active
* hardware tests (memory, etc.) do not report any errors

i suspect this has started after i've updated all the drivers from manufacturer's site, but i am not 100% sure. anyway, i do not know which driver has caused this and i cannot easily restore to the previous state.

how do i find the culprit?

I've an Asus f5sl laptop with Vista Home Premium (32bit) but it's been freezing on me lately.

When I boot up, it gets to the black screen with the green bar but after a few seconds, the green bar freezes and I can't log in. Occasionally it boots up after around half an hour but then Vista periodically freezes for a few seconds before resuming (which is annoying when trying to write out something etc)
I don't see any problems in Safe Mode so is possibly a driver? I've updated all my drivers, completely updated using WIndows Update, ran antispyware, used System Restore etc

Only problem is; I've moved to a new country, and like a fool, I left my Vista start up disk back home. Which I would otherwise have tried.

Thanks

If you've cleaned the system you will have ruled out Overheating.
Try running one or both of these Memory Tests

If the RAM pass the tests try running Check Disk in Windows and also Tick the box to automatically fix bad sectors, And then download your HDD manufacturers test for your HDD.

Wow... not having GUI(explorer) to navigate around made me go retro to old DOS days. -- I was able to clean this up by brute force. !!Not for the novice.

This appeared to be but not confirmed Vundo instance, as no virus/malware tool would detect it!, hooked into lsass and winlogon. Explorer would load on login but then disappear. Using TaskMan > Run... explorer it launches but then ends up restarting every time a explorer process/subprocess is initiated. Using ProcessExplorer I was able to view what processes had these hooks in them, always in lsass and winlogon upon launching other programs it would hook into those as well, including taskman, procexp, and even hijackthis. Knowing what modules had the hook active in them was key to being able to close them, stopping the hooks enough to allow me to delete the files. I found that starting explorer and letting it cycle every 5 seconds allowed me to launch other programs without the hook being active in them.

With 2 cmd windows open, taskman, procexp I started off to battle. I say battle because in 3 attempts I got blue screens by not letting this virus do its thing.
1) stop lsass with procexp. as soon as you do this, windows will start a 60 second count down to restart so you have to be fast.
2) Run unreg.bat - This removed byXRkjHX.dll but pmnnLFvT.dll was still in use by winlogon

Alright so this happened when i was scanning for viruses and whatnot with Spy-bot Search and Destroy on Windows 7. I left the room and when i came back the screen was black. i shock the mouse, tried using the touch-pad and hitting some keys. It wouldn't respond. I held the power button down to turn it off. When i turned it back on however it power on (lights flash, etc) but for no more ten 5 seconds. It rarely even got the fan going. Nothing appears on the screen when i do this (no post or anything , just black). I thought the power button may have been stuck but I took the computer apart (somewhat and found it was working fine. I am using a laptop. Prior to this the battery was pretty much done with (Ubuntu 9.04 told me it had 10-20 percent of normal capacity rate). I tried it without the battery (wall charger plugged in). I tried it battery only. My cousin had the same computer and i'm using it right now. I swapped my hard drive with his and some ram. So i know it isn't that that is the problem. Does anyone have any idea what might be happening? I plan to take this to staples soon but I'd still like to have some insight on what might be wrong before then.

My computer for some reason restarts like every 5-10 seconds or so. What's sad it took me a few days to realise this
Ok seriously now this makes no sense I mean what happend is this,

I accidentally bumped into my computer and and My screen smeared and I mean I literally barley bumped into it.

So I restarted it and it got to the XP logo and I told myself I knew it was fine and I needed to go to bed so I went ahead and turned off the computer.

The next day I started my computer and nothing happend. The monitor appeared as it does when the computer is off and it made this little annoying noise that eventually led

me to realise that the noise was the one happend when the computer restarted so now for some reason my computer is constantly restarting.

My computer has messed up a dozen times over the last few years some internal and physical I've always picked the problem out and so this is the first one that I have no ideah how to fix.

I should also mention when I hooked the cd player up it worked and then I messed around it stopped again. I'm guessing it may possibly be a wiring problem.

Also I checked the cords to make sure that it wasn't unhooked and it appears to be fine.

Thanks For spending about 60 seconds of your time reading this

?The system process D:\\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe' terminated unexpectedly with status code 1073741819. The system will now shut down and restart.?

Hi guys,
I recently bought a new motherboard and new ram and a new CPU all compatible as far as I know. However the hard drive I am using is an old 300gb hard drive. It's transfer cable was a 1.5 gb/ps sata cable. However since the new motherboard only has a 3 gb and 6 gb sata cable, I plugged the 6 gb one into the hard drive. I also tested the 3 gb one and I got the following problem. It would start up and I could get into the bios, but when I want to start windows, it will say "starting windows" for a couple seconds, then restart the computer. Someone told me that if I put a clean version of windows on it that my problem should be fixed. Can anyone verify that please?

Here are my specs:
Asus p8z68 m-pro
Intel i7 3770k
Corsair vengeance 4x4gb ram
Maxtor 300gb hard drive
350 watt power supply

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
 

A:Windows starts for few seconds then restarts

If the hard drive you are installing . Still has the old Os on it from your other computer. Yes you should put a clean install of your os on it. Due to the fact it will have to many issue with the drivers it needs to run this motherboard. Plus you may want to use the 3gb sata cable. Due to it is the closet to your old one. Hope this helps. If not you may need to replace the hard drive with a newer one more up to date with your board.

A:Computer restarts after 2-3 seconds from boot

reece10,
With this computer I will try to help you out since i am new to the forums myself. Follow these steps as I myself have came across this problem. I will try to put it as simple as I can for you. You will have to do this procedure fast so familiarize yourself with it and instantly begin the process once windows boots up. It might take you a couple of tries.

Right click on "My Computer"
Select "Properties"
Click on the "Advanced" tab
Under start-up and recovery click "Settings"
Under system failure take the "check mark" out of automatically restart
Click ok

This should stop the computer from rebooting every few seconds. This is when your computer comes across a simple error or hiccup it will automatically reboot your computer everytime. Hopefully this will solve your issue.

The laptop is a compaq presario 2100 and a friend gave it to me, so i thought i'd be smart and safe, and seek professional help before i opened it up and tinkered around.

After i press the power button, it turns on, and then after 3 or 4 seconds it simply restarts. It doesn't restart, however, if i spam the delete key to go into BIOS. Once i exit BIOS and try default values or any values it repeats the problem. I ran a hard drive check and all is normal...so any advice would be nice. Thank You

From clicking restart to being back on the desktop takes 30 seconds. I though it would boot faster with an SSD installed. My entire system seems slow. I tried running the Windows Experience index (I know it's not a good indicator of performance) and it keeps failing saying it can't check memory.

Anything I should be looking at? Running memtest maybe?

A:Why does my system seem slow and restarts take 30 seconds?

1. Ensure Windows is updated.
2. Run a clean startup and see if its quicker:

Hello guys, i need some help with something.
Tdoay i installed a new Case for my PC an a new PSU for my PC, i DID everything as i should, and when i press the power button, i get the fans to work, all the lights and stuff but no image, also the leds on the mouse dont start up, and the lights on the keyboard dont start up either, after 30 seconds the pc turns off, and then turns on again i dont really know what to do now, im really dscared since ive been working to get some money for this parts and now looks liek something is wrong please help me guys

A:PC isn't Showing Image, and restarts 30 seconds after...

Can you give us some info on the case and PSU that you installed and the motherboard?

I would say one thing is the power to the motherboard can be either 20 pin or 24 pin so make sure that is right.

Also, there is a set of wires that go to the motherboard from the front panel to tell the computer to start/restart/and leds... make sure these all match on the motherboard.

Hello, I'm having a problem where my laptop will randomly shut off and then turn back on seconds later. Back then it only happened once every few weeks but now it's starting to happen every few hours. I've tried resetting the laptop but the issue is still there. If there is any solution, I will be grateful.

A while back, I posted this thread:

http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/663699-computer-fails-shuts-down-after.html

After a few suggestions here and elsewhere, I went out and bought a new ATX-350PN from SPI.

Well, it turns out when I first got it all hooked up, I forgot to connect the 4-pin CPU power connector. It turned on (sort of) without restarting at all (probably because it's not doing much except spinning fans and discs). As soon as I realized what I'd done and fixed it, it went back to the same old behaviour. On for a couple seconds, then off again.

Any suggestions are appreciated.
 

A:Still working on a computer that restarts after a few seconds

Motherboard possibly is faulty, or jamming, for example "pushing" the power or reset button all the time, because of shorting out.

Disabling sleep, hybrid sleep and hibernation has resulted in the computer restarting a few seconds after Shutdown. Previously, sleep worked correctly until the computer was revived, at which time there would be black screen, fans full blast and no POST. Hold power button to power off, then powering on would resume from sleep as normal. If hibernation was allowed, the computer would not properly detect my raid0 boot drive and another hard restart was required.

Hi everyone,I recently dealt with the Security Suite virus, and I thought it was all gone until the error message "Windows Explorer has stopped working," followed by "Windows Explorer is restarting..." kept appearing on screen, even after the virus was gone. I managed to disable the Windows Error Reporting service to stop the error message from popping up, but Windows Explorer keeps restarting and closing certain programs. This error does not happen in Safe Mode.I got the DDS logs, but when I attempted to use gmer, it gave me this error:As a result, most of the boxes are greyed out.

Hi,
Been a while since I've been here, but now I've got an annoying problem. At the end of the day, I shut down my computer. The last few times it would go through the motions and shut down like normal - I'd hear it power down and there would be silence. I'd start to walk away, and it boots up again. I went to the startup and recovery and Automatically Restart is unchecked. Any ideas?
