Preferred Solution: laptop restarts one second into loading screen

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.)

Now forgive me skrillek but which hard drive are we talking about the drive from your machine to her machine or her drive to your machine??

IF you are using two different OS's then of course the receiving machine will not work.

A:Windows xp restarts after loading screen

Hi sensrule and welcome to TSF !

To make it sure : you did a clean reinstall (formatting the drive, reinstalling windows from the start) and still got the same problems ?

What are the motherboard, PSU and RAM brands and models ? What are the PSU specifications (should be written on a sticker on the side of the power supply) ?

Could you download and install everest, or install whatever monitor program that came with your motherboard driver CD, and report here with the temperatures, fan speeds and voltages ? We don't need the whole everest report, only the informations under "sensor". We need to double-check those values with the ones from the BIOS, so enter the BIOS (repeatedly press del at computer startup), find the screen that monitors those voltages, fans speeds and temperatures and give us also the values reported there.

Could be faulty ram : download and burn Memtest86+ bootable ISO. Boot the computer on the CD : you'll have to enter the bios and change the boot device priority to CD-rom first. Let memtest run three full passes on your ram (it can take some time, you can let it run overnight). If it finds errors, you'll have to redo the tests on one ram stick at a time to identify the failing one(s) : open the case and leave only one ram stick on the motherboard (remove the power cable and touch a metal part of the case before you touch any internal components) then reboot on memtest CD. It's recommendend that you also run Windiag to double check ... Read more

I booted another computer with this computer's power supply and hard drive, I activated windows. It booted fine.

I then went back to this computer with the power supply and hard drive, except just after booting screen, it loaded just a tinge slower. And now it restarts immediately after logo, prompting the safe mode system restore options.

I am able to boot in safe mode fine, as I am now.

Had a look at a few of the similar topics. Under advice from another thread i went into safe mode thing and turned off automatic restart after failed boot. or whatever that option is and this is the error i get.


STOP C000021a (Fatal System Error)
The Session Manager Initialization System Process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000034 (0x00000000 0x00000000)
The system has been shut down.


translation? my hdd is screwed? or is this a fixable thing.

Basically here is what happened. i was having graphics glitches and trying to fix it, some1 suggested i had artifact problems which meant my GPU was screwed. i removed my GPU and this started happening. b4 this my computer would boot with the GPU in it but the graphics were fcked.

now my computer wont boot in normal or safe mode, with the GPU in or out. GPU in i dont see anything at all but i hear the pc booting. GPU out this happens. is there anyway to make the PC think that my graphics card is new hardware so i can reinstall drivers etc from scratch? possibly reset the cmos? how do i do that?

A:PC restarts after windows loading screen

Hi knoddy


What is the make/model of your PC?

I'll assume you know that when working on a PC, you know how to take anti-static precautions, and to have the power off & the cord unplugged.

Try:
1) Remove the add-on graphics card.
2) As the computer is powering on, immediately start tapping the key/key combo mentioned in your bios banner or bios splash screen "Press F1 (or F2, F10, DEL, etc.) to Enter Setup".
3) In the Bios, make sure the date/time settings haven't moved backwards a year or two. If the time/date have moved backwards, it's time to replace the CMOS battery (see your system manual or your vendor's support webpages for full details on how to do that).
4) Look for an item in the Bios that allows you to "Save Defaults & Exit", and choose that.
5) As the system is restarting, begin tapping the F8 key, and see if you can enter Safe Mode.
6) If you can enter Safe Mode OK, visit Device Manager in the Control Panel (Control Panel - System - Hardware - Device Manager) and remove all the devices listed in "Display Adapters".
7) Visit Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove any video/graphics drivers that might be listed there.
8) On reboot, Windows should redetect the onboard graphics, and install drivers (you might have to allow it to visit Widows Update to get the most recent driver).

If that helps things display OK, next see if you can return your video card for a refund (if it's under warra... Read more

Hello,

Tricky one this.

Dell Inspiron 1501 laptop - Was working fine, I restarted the machine then the the laptop would get to "Windows XP loading" (just before the login screen) and restart itself after the login screen.

I then disabled the harddrive after it happened a fair few times. I then booted a USB stick with ubuntu on, and it loaded but if the hard drive was connected it would show lines down the screen just a few RED GREEN BLUE ones.

So this morning I placed a Latitude D630 hard drive in the laptop. It would do the same but this time with vista.

What could the problem be?

I'm wondering possibly could it be the bios? How can I over come this. There was an error with the Windows XP when I stopped the machine from restarting but rather it turning straight off it came up with a blue screen about how i have installed new software or hard ware. The only thing was before it turned off it had some form of virus on it, which disabled the microsoft essential security.

I tried installing AVG but it didn't work as Windows Installer now wasn't working. The virus seemed to had only affected the internet when I done searches a page unrelated to the search would display.

I then tried installing avg but windows installer needed ot be instaled so I installed that it restarted itself and now this is the problem I'm facing.

Hardware failuer more than likely. If you are getting lines up and down the screen it is probably a video adapter and/or it's memory. Try running some diagnostics as I think DELL has those in the startup options.

Hello everyone, please help.

I'm having a problem in starting Windows Vista (OEM) in my Acer Aspire 5735.

Everytime my laptop reaches somewhen between loading screen to welcome screen, it unexpectedly restarts with no blue screen or any message. The restart it does cuts the power, turning it off and back on then boots normally. Making a restart loop.

This also happen to any Windows Installer. I tried booting it with Windows 7 and 8 installer but the problem still occurs.

The weird thing is when I run the Acer eRecovery Management or Windows System Repair and Recovery I created before upon boot, it runs fine and I be able to restore my laptop to its factory defaults. But when I tried to boot it again, the problem still occur.

THE PROBLEM ONLY HAPPENS WHEN I BOOT WINDOWS. But when I go to BIOS settings, booted USBDOS, flashing BIOS, it works fine...

What's the matter with my laptop? This is the weirdest problem that I'm facing when fixing computers...

These are the things that I had done but the problem still persists:

1. Flashed the BIOS from 1.07 to 1.10 using USBDOS.
2. Restored the BIOS to factory defaults.
3. Restarted the CMOS and changed the CMOS battery.
4. Removed the hard drive and booted using the Windows disc
5. Removed external devices and battery
6. Reseated the CPU and RAM
7. Diagnosed the RAM using memtestx86+ (no errors)
8. Check the power (no faults)

I have tried booting in to the recovery console using:

Does this mean my only other options left is to perform a fresh install?

Some background. About an year ago, my hp dc7800 wouldn't start and was giving the 5 beeps with red light. I had not used it for a month, and the tech fixed it. Nie again, after an year, I turned it on. It's been working fine for a month but during that time, the pc would suddenly stop, and even task manager won't work. I robstalled windows after the first time, because the windows splash screen would get stuck. It happened again but then I reset the CMOS, and I think I used f8 and booted with last known good configuration. Now it's happened again but none of that works. The windows splash screen loads and a blue screen comes on for a very short trine before it restarts. I can't read what it says but it's not the standard BSOD,too short. I tried removing the DIMM stocks one by one but no dice. The windows startup repair said that problems had been fixed but they weren't. I've tried running a hard drive diagnostic but my cd Tom is screwed as it won't open, so I can't make a bootable cd, and the bootable USB I made doesn't work either. If you need any logs tell me and I'll post them, but my pc won't boot in safe mode either and just restarts.

A:after windows xp loading screen computer restarts!!

This is what we refer to as the blue screen of death unfortuinately that usually means something bad. First off try booting to the xp cd and doing repair and when you log into the windows it asks for usually number one iwth a blank admin password at the command prompt type chkdsk /r and run that until it says no errors and then try to boot again. If that doesnt work let me know and we can try other things.

Hi

Suddenly having serious problems with my computer.

Has been working fine for months but when I turned it on yesterday I started having problems.

The problem is that the computer starts to boot up fine, but when it reaches the Windows Loading screen it restarts the whole process of booting up again. This loop continues and does not stop.

Have tried starting the PC in safe more and all the other different modes but it doesnt make a difference.

Have also tried changing the boot order of the drives, no difference.

Unfortunatly I do not own a CD to re-boot or re-install the OS as the computer was passed onto my from a relative. They dont have the CD either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have alot of photos and documents on the PC that I would like to get back!

Well I had trouble finding anyone else with this exact problem. I'll try explaining this the best I can.

Well when I start my computer, it sometimes goes to the last known configuration page. The one that looks like this:


No matter which option I choose, when it gets to the Windows XP loading screen, it lags when the windows xp logo fades in, and then the computer restarts.
I did find a temporary way around this. When the computer starts up I hit F8 and i'm shown this screen:


Then, if I choose my hard drive, the loading screen comes up, and everything works fine. I figured this may be a hard drive issue, so I ordered a new hard drive. (I needed one anyway)

My original HDD is a Western Digital 75GB Raptor, the new one i bought is a Western Digital 640GB, both SATA. I tried setting them both up on my computer so I could transfer over some important files, but when I booted the computer with both of them installed, the computer would lag on the windows xp loading screen no matter what I did.

So I took that out and now i'm in the same position I was before. Anyone have any advice?
 

A:Windows XP Lags on Loading Screen... Restarts

Install your new drive and set the jumpers as master. Set the old drive as slave and Make sure it is disconnected. I assume you have your XP install CD? Make sure the CD/ROM Is set for first boot in the bios and install XP anew in the new drive. After the install shutdown the computer and connect the old drive and boot up the computer. Now you should be able to access the old drive and transfer your data to the new drive. Once done and confirmed that the data is transferred, you can delete, or format the old drive.

I've been researching the problem for a few hours now, and the employee had said "the computer was acting up lately" but couldn't give me any information past that.

So far I have replaced the power supply, checked the fans, checked the RAM, checked the IDE cable to the HardDrive, and made sure nothing is overheating.

So I clicked on all of them and the result was the same, It took me to the windows XP loading screen were the blue bar at the bottom would begin to load and then it would just restart, it has been doing this all day.

I have been googling this issue all day but I do not know what to do.

Originally I presumed my power supply might be at fault since it seemed to be making lots of noises the past 4 months.
I have read that faulty RAM could also be the issue, I am currently running memtest86.
I have heard of people reformatting and the problem persisted.

Welcome to TSF....

Give this a try:

If you have a Full Operating System on CD then you can try this:

1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER (if none was set, leave it blank and press ENTER).
7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results.

Hi, last night I was running a virusscan and adaware scans, disk cleanup (adaware, spybot, windows thing, etc) as I always do. Only difference was that i uninstalled my ATI drivers in preparation for installing the 5.11 drivers.

Well, I wake up this morning and my PC is on a blank screen saying "Hardware initiate failed, press G to continue"...

So I restart. All my computer does is hang at the Windows loading screen for like 5 minutes until it restarts by itself.

Then when it restarts I get the choice of running Windows normally, safe mode, or last known config. Last known good config does the same as running Windows normally - it hangs on the loading screen.

I've tried safe mode but it hangs when the list of drivers appears on my screen.

What do you think is wrong? I'd like to fix this without having to reinstall windows, etc. Do you think it has something to do with the fact that I uninstalled the ATI drivers?

I've updated drivers before AND did my virusscan/adaware scans before with this problem never occuring like this.

Please help, this is urgent as there are alot of important unfinished documents on there.

Thanks!

hey Blaine B.,

try a windows repair and see if that helps at all. bootup with your windows xp cd and then on the main console, choose install windows. press F8 to agree and then on the next screen, instead of reformatting and installing windows, choose the option that says "R=windows repair." then see if this works out for you. good luck

my laptop was fine running on vista OS and when I heared about windows 7
I installed it and that went fine too
4 months later the laptop suddenly restarts at any time (browsing - playing games .. etc)
I took it to a technical and he formatted it to windows XP then when I opened the laptop it restarted on loading screen (where the logo is displayed)
I told the technical and he said that I should go to safe mode and restart from there I tried this and it worked
a few weeks later and this method stopped working
now I must go to safe mode and restart and go there again and restart ... etc now it is luck which opens it cause it works sometimes and sometimes not
yesterday i re-installed windows 7 on another drive (not C:/) and to complete installation I must restart the computer

[SOLVED]

I tried going into safe mode, but when I hit the logon screen, my comp would automatically restart after a few seconds. The seconds are random. Normal mode/startup worked fine. So I thought I could try using msconfig and had windows do safeboot with minimal .... That was a bad idea, since now my computer tries to always go into safe mode, and it always restarts at logon. I've managed to type in my password fast enough but it says it's incorrect, and then restarts a split second after. And I've also tried leaving it blank, but that was incorrect.

I've tried pushing f8 during boot up choosing "repair your computer". I tried automatic fix, but that didn't work. I didn't have any restore points or images, so I couldn't do either of those. I tried the memory diagnostic and nothing was wrong. I tried using the command prompt and tried finding and running msconfig.exe in system32, but it wasn't there.

After pushing f8, I've also tried selecting safe mode with command prompt, but it goes to the same logon screen, and then restarts. I've tried "last good configuration" and "disable automatic restart on system failure" or something like those, without any luck. I've also selected normal mode but since I've selected safeboot, that just goes into the safe mode logon and restarts.

I've tried putting in the windows 7 disc, and managed to get to the menu with the automatic fix, restore point, and command prompt by logging in with the s... Read more

A:computer restarts when loading safe mode logon screen

So after doing some searching, I thought I should try editing the boot.ini. I found out that windows 7 doesn't use boot.ini, but uses the boot loader program. I figured out that I had to use the command "bcdedit" in the command prompt. I found the word "safeboot" for one of the parameters in the list bcdedit provides. Then I took some time and learned how to change that. I learned I had to use the command "/deletevalue" and from there, I got my comp to go back to booting normally.

Ok, this is simple enough to explain, i just don't know what the problem actually is and haven't seen this same thread yet.

Toshiba Satellite a35-s1593
I noticed less than a week ago that my charge light on the laptop was not coming on, so i looked at the jack, sure enough it was broken, the inner cylinder(for lack of a better name).. gone, i don't know what happened, other than the possibility that one of my pets knocked the charger off my night stand and the stress was enough to break it. before this i had been waiting for it to break knowing it is the week spot for most laptops.

So i got the replacement jack in two days ago, took the laptop apart yesterday, and finished de-soldering the old input off the motherboard and then soldered the new one on tonight (all this just a couple of hours ago). Finally all back together in one peice and trouble trouble trouble.

This is probably my fault somehow because this is the first jack i have fixed and the satellite was a pain to dismantle. But, basically what i got now is a laptop that is showing it is being charged (Hurray, i actually fix what i was trying to), but whenever i try to turn it on, plugged in or not, i hear the fans kick in as normal, all leds ignite as normal, but nothing comes up on the screen. The fans stop after the initial loud start, and then the laptop turns off (kind of sounds like when you do a hard shut down). The laptop then after a sec starts back up and does the exact same thi...

hello all,
my laptop restarts again and again even it do not allow the screen to come up. i tried to press F8 but it do the same, than i tried to press F10 on starting it stops restarting but no screen comes up. i tried to hook it up with an external monitor while pressing F10 nothing comes up.
before some days ago it showed this problem like restarting after some time maybe 1 hr or so. my guess is that i moved into new place and this place has carpet so may be the laptop was just getting heated up and restarting. but now it is completely dead.
i tried to run it without battery and with only power but no effect.
than i read some forums they say to open it up and reassemble it i did that too i open up all the laptop piece by piece and reassemble it but it is still the same.
please some body help me it this.

I'm posting this on my laptop at the moment.

Earlier today my computer froze, so I reset it. My hand twitched and I pressed the switch twice in the same second, which is bad. I think it might have cause my computer to short out, but I sure hope not. So I turn it on and I get to the usual "Choose how you want to reboot Windows" screen after your computer gets turned off automatically. I chose every option and each one lead to the same result: they all went to the Windows loading screen and my computer reset from there.

Has anyone experienced this before and/or knows how to fix it? I really don't want to have to wipe my hard drive since at the moment I had just finished downloading King Crimson and Porcupine Tree ><

First post, but I have tried to uninstall video drivers, system restore, random registry fixes, and so forth. I also did a virus scan, showing 17 Trojans (I know, very bad). I am guessing that is how this happened, not sure though. Uninstalling the video drivers helps, until I need to restart it due to new software. Then I can sometimes get to the log in screen, but even after that, It just goes black after a few seconds. I have searched and searched all over, and have not found a fix. Any help?

I hope he did not get a virus. Please help me

A:blue screen flashes then laptop restarts

Hi jess_bohannon,

First post the full specs of the computer specs here. This will help us troubleshoot your computer issue.

One thing you can do is to update the computer hardware drivers on the computer. Update the videocard drivers, motheboard chipset drivers, and even soundcard drivers and see if that helps resolves the blue screen issue. Also, if the blue-screen error comes up again, please post the stop error here as well.

Another thing you can do if the blue-screen persist after updating the computer hardware drivers, is to perform a check disk repair on the computer and see if that works out for you. Here is the link to the instructions on how to perform a check disk repair: How to perform disk error checking in Windows XP

I would also go to the manufacturer's website of the hard-drive on your computer, download their "HDD Dianostics Utility" program, put the program onto a CD, boot the computer to it, and test the hard-drive for any errors. Hope everything works for you.

Hi,

I have a HP Compaq Presario C700 Notebook PC purchased new and have had it about three years. For last month or so it has sometimes shut down and then restarted with a blue screen message. It's happened when I play music files and, and also a few times when a program freezes and I hit CTRL+ALT+Delete to open the Task Manager. Tonight it happened when the HP automatic product identification application hung and I then tried to open Task Manager; the computer shut down and restarted with the blue screen message.

The blue screen message is only briefly visible, so I can't get any of it other than something about "If this is the first time you've seen this message...." Then the desktop appears and there's the following, "Windows has shut down unexpectedly" and the option to find out more about the event. Three times I've copied the words describing the event and the first part of the message is the same each time:

A:HELP! after activating wifi, blue screen appear, then laptop restarts

It is probably related to a driver issue, or your computer could be infected. Perhaps you should start with the infection theory as it is the most common. There are usually, but not always, 4 stages to being infected.The computer exibits buggy behavior, such as warnings appear, or some program doesn't always work right, etc.The computer starts to run slow: takes longer to start, takes longer to shutdown, when you click on something it might delay a second or two before responding.You start to have connectivity problems. You can't get on the internet, or you keep getting bumped off the internet. The internet connection works real slow, etc.The computer won't boot.It seems you may be at stage 3, connectivity issues.However, here if you want to read info strictly about the particular blue screen you are receiving, here are two articles to get you started:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314063http://www.osronline.com/DDKx/ddtools/bccodes_6vxj.htm
