Laptop restarts everytime I boot it.

Q: Laptop restarts everytime I boot it.

Hii guys, my laptop restarts everytime I boot it. It restarts once or twice then it works fine for as long as I keep it on. Its happening every single time.

Following are the errors from the event log.

Preferred Solution: Laptop restarts everytime I boot it.

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.)

A: Laptop restarts everytime I boot it.

Have you experienced these problems from the start of the upgrade?

Did you upgrade over the existing Vista install or did you perform a clean install?

Hi everyone! I am writing because my laptop keeps restarting randomly after I turn on it's ability to connect wirelessly to the internet. It gives me a one-second BSOD which I can't read because that's when it turns off and restarts! I'd post the error message if I could read it. I have run VirusScan twice now (came back with nothing) and SpyDocter and Adaware and am really at my wits end. I have a three year old Toshiba Tecra M2V and am using XP. If anyone knows anything about this, please let me know! I would greatly appreciate it!

A:My Laptop Restarts everytime it connects to the internet!

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Startup and Recovery Settings

Uncheck Automatically Restart

Click Apply and then OK

Now when you receive a blue screen the computer will pause on it and you will have to reboot manually.

The 'Blue Screen of Death' (or BSOD) is refered to by Microsoft as a Stop Message. They can occur for many reasons. In order to diagnose it's cause we need as much info as you can give about the stop message. Please write it down and post it back here the next time it happens. In particular, it helps to have the somewhat cryptic series of numbers about half way down the blue screen that have this sort of format:

0x0000008E (Followed by four other sets of numbers in parenthesis.)
It is also helpful to know the answers to these questions:What are you doing when this happens (are you on line, starting the computer, etc).
Does it always happen at the same time?
Is it always the same message, or is it a different set of numbers each time?
Have you added any hardware or software lately?
Are you experiencing any other buggy behavior from this computer (such as it runs slower than it used to, etc)?

Hi, Last night I was browsing the internet and attempted to download something from a website that seemed legitimate, but when I went to scan the file with MSE, I was shocked to find that MSE was turned off, and I could not get it to work again.
I forget the exact error displayed, but I immediately disconnected the internet, uninstalled MSE, and then re-installed, reconnected to the net, updated MSE and was immediately confronted with a security warning that my system was infected with "Sirefef.Y".

MSE tried to clean the infection, but before it could complete the process, I recieved a Windows Critical error, stating that my system has encountered a problem and will automatically restart in 60 seconds, which it did.
This is a cycle that continues to occur, and pretty much immediately after boot, which gives me very little time to do anything about the problem.
Please help!

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.

I have tried starting the computer in safe mode but get the same problem - each time I receive the Windows error and the system reboots
Any help you could provide would be appreciated a great deal.

Thanks in advance.

Heres my problem, when I turn on my Presario, I get the Compaq screen, then it goes to the windows xp loading screen, and at the next step, when it should go to windows log in, it flashes a blue screen, too fast to read what it says, and reboots.
Now I just signed up here a couple of minutes ago and when I got to this forum I saw the recovery sticky and tried those directions. At the compaq screen I repeatedly tapped f10, but instead of giving me options (per the instructions) it seemed to do the diagnostic on it's own. It passed a lot of the functions, the only error being "system cmos checksum bad- used default settings". So I looked up the error and it says the error could be three things, bad cmos battery, bad bios update, or corruption due to incorrect shut down. Now, if I was to guess at one of these three options, I'd guess it was the battery. This is a pretty old laptop and as far as I know, the battery has never been changed. So heres my questions:
1.)Does this sound like a plausible explanation of whats wrong? I've had the hard drive go bad on me once before and the symptoms were completely different.
2.) If it was the cmos battery, would the laptop start with default settings, even though I haven't changed the battery?
3.) The laptop took a jolt shortly before this started happening, is it possible something just came loose?
4.) I had the laptop shut down on me once because the fan was clogged with dust and bound up (overheated). Now, with this probl... Read more

Well my computer froze, and I restarted it. It got stuck restarting so I turned the power off. Now when I turn it on, it goes to the menu where the choices are Safe Mode, Normal mode and a few extras. I choose any of them , it flashes a blue screen and then restarts again, taking me to that menu again. The flash is like half a second, and I cant read it. Anybody know what is wrong? I cant turn it on at all. All the choices do the same thing? Is it dead? I dont have anything important on it luckily , other than some downloaded games and crap. Please help!!! What do I do?

A:Starts up, then restarts.... EVERYTIME, cant turn it on.

Same happened with me - couldn't see the screen not one bit. I found out the error message though which helped me a lot, if you find it out - you'll be able to get a faster result as people will know the exact error.

Try getting a camera and if you can put it on "continuous" shot or video it and pause it at that second. :P

Does it do the same thing if on first boot you enter safe mode (F8)? Have you checked both the application tab, and system tab in event viewer?

If there is nothing in eventvwr then it must be a "normal" event. Even those are listed in eventvwr. Can you take a snip of the events adjacent to the time of the first boot and upload it to us?

Would anyone possibly know what would be causing my Liteon CD burner to restart my computer everytime it revs up to read info that was burned onto a CD ?
 

A:CD burner restarts computer everytime it reads a CD

It's drawing more power than your PC's power supply can handle. Either there is a problem with the motor device inside the CDROM causing it to draw too much power. Or the power supply itself is either not large enough to power your PC's components, or has weakened from age. When your CDROM spins up, your power supply output drops below the specs at which your motherboard needs to operate at, causing it to restart.

First, try a different CDROM drive (take one from another PC, or borrow someones). If the computer restarts with the different drive spinning up, then your power supply is toast.

After installing the latest round of updates from Lenovo for W10, I've been having this issue. I close the lid, the computer begins to restart itself immediately. I tried doing a hardware scan and everything's fine. I tried change the lid close options - usually I have it set to sleep, I changed it to 'do nothing' and then back to sleep and each time I still had the problem. Putting charger in doesn't change anything. If I set the computer to sleep by pressing fn+4 and I DONT close the lid... it goes to sleep just fine.

So I turned on my Asus F3T laptop which runs Windows Vista today. It began to boot, showed the Asus logo with black background, and then restarted itself.

Hi all,

I am actually a newbie in fixing PC as that normally I try to check the net for more information on what's going on if something is actually happen to my PC.

Currently in the office that I work for, we have some problems and it seems getting bigger and bigger. Not sure how this is happen though, but it does happen quite fast.

As far as I know several PC's in the office are infected including the server itself. The server is under windows and the PC is under XP Home.

Here is the chronological of the problem.

Yesterday morning, one of the staff is complaining about the PC is being slow. I investigate the matter and found out that the muhuahua virus is actually running in the system although avg8 is running but it doesn't detect it as previously when I first install it, it straight away detect the muhuahua virus. Starting from that point I do necessary action to remove it such as terminating it from the processes and removing all the heap41a file. Then when go to Start>Run>regedit, the problem start.

The registry editor doesn't show up. Then I try using the safe mode to try to load registry editor but no luck. So the googling part comes in with few solutions. I've try most of them, but the result getting worst.

At present, every time it reads the word registry the PC restarts by itself. Not even the registry cleaner and HijackThis can do . As I am still searching for solutions, could I get any solutions from here?

For the past little while, ever since installing StartupCop!, every time I boot my Windows2000Pro machine, the System32 folder pops up. For no apparent reason. Just pops up...I try to close it and it pops back up. It just doesnt die for the first 3 times you push it and then it finally goes away.

Any suggestions?

A:Everytime I boot...

Spycop is going to look for changes in your Sys32 folder. Changes happen there all the time and you are probably getting the popup from Spycop. Go to Spycop options and see if there is a setting that will turn off popping up windows when there is a chage detected.

Couple of obvious issues

Avast can be a contributing cause of BSOD'S . Please remove and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST
http://files.avast.com/files/eng/aswclear5.exe

Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
Please remove any CD visualization programs such as Daemon Tools and Alcohol 120%.

They use a driver, found in your dmp, called sptd.sys, that is notorious for causing BSODs.

Use this SPTD uninstaller DuplexSecure - Downloads DuplexSecure - FAQ

when you're done you can use this Freeware:

MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM (MagicDisc) in its place

Using MagicISO to create ISO image files

When you turn on the laptop, continuously tap F8 until you get the Advanced Boot Menu screen. From here choose "Disable automatic restart on system failure". Then when you restart, you should get a blue screen. What exactly does it say on the blue screen?

Hello, I am an above average pc user, I reciently reinstalled XP on my laptop, And MalWarebytes, with Avast. I almost got that 2010antivirus ( malwarebytes nor avast caught it) I was able to stop it from scanning and installing, by closing the web browser. I immediately shut down, and booted in safe mode, and ran a scan with MalWarebytes ( Its also the most recient virus database).

Now when I boot my computer Malwarebytes tells me it blocked an outgoing connection to 64.94.137.102. I have done several virus scans. And nothing finds anything.. I would like to get some help removing whatever is on my computer trying to connect out. If I google the IP address it seems to be afalse positive. But I dont always trust Google..

Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi there, I'm having a few problems with my Seagate Barracuda HDD. When I boot into Windows XP it automatically performs a chckdsk procedure. If I skip the process it makes no difference and the computer works normally. The only thing that seems to be effected is I can't defrag the drive because it says the drive is scheduled to run chkdsk!

Also using the Sea Tools Diagnostic software I have run drive tests on the drive in question and it always fails the short DST. I also have had problems before with the drive coming up with delayed write failure errors, but these seem to have stopped now. Any help on this would be most appreciated!

Will Morris

P.S Sorry for lack of spec etc. I did used to have an account on here but it seems to have disappeared!
 

A:Chkdsk runs everytime I boot up!

Welcome to TechSpot!

How old is the HDD in question?
Could be a number of things wrong?
HDD is going bad..
Bad sectors on the HDD that can't be fixed with chksdsk

By your own reports there you drive is failing, you should clone the drive
onto a newer drive larger than your current drive. Better start soon. If you
delay the HDD could be unaccessable.

I built my first comp this summer with some help. Worked perfectly until about 2 months ago. It froze on me as I booted it up. Turned it off and tried it again same thing. Nothing fixed it. Had it looked at by some pros and told me I needed a new Mobo. Had the mobo replaced with same model only to have it happen again only when the harddrive was attached. Tried repairing the harddrive only to have the system lock up during the repair process. Put in a brand new HDrive and tried to run a fresh install of windows only to have it freeze up on the new hard drive during the install. At my wits end. Could the problem be a bad CPU?? What else could the problem be???

AMD 64 3400+
K8T Neo-FIS2R
1G Corsiar XMS
420W Vantec
9800 Pro 256Mb
WD Caviar SE 160gig(SATA)
 

A:Computer freezes everytime after boot.

Welcome to Techspot!
If you hace a PC health type page in you CMOS setup ,go there and check CPU temps and voltages readings from the PSU.
If you have more than 1 pc of Ram try swapping with just 1 in to see if there is a bad strip.
Let us know what your trouble shooting discovers.
