Preferred Solution: automatic restart

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.)

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

HI, I normally connect to client VPN to access their systems. To connect to VPN, IKE and Authip IPsec keying modules should enabled. I made it automatic from services, and after restart the computer, it changed to disabled. So i thought IKE service
will enable if i try to connect to VPN which also not worked. I have to enable it manually. Is there something that anyone can help? Any help will help here.

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

Sometimes my PC automatic restart. I never click restart button. Why is that?
How do i overcome this matter? When windows starting it show "Windows is not shutdown correclty.....
Start normal" screen.
*Windows never show "Error message" in this process.

A:Automatic PC Restart.

I think more details would be in order here. Particularly, what are you specifically doing on the PC when it automatically restarts? Do you get a Blue Screen, an error message, does it freeze and then restart or does it just go black then restart? Additionally, is there a pattern or does this happen randomly? Also, did this start recently or has it been happening for a while?

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?

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 have this laptop.

Toshiba satellite A200-AH6

OS: Vista? Home Premium (Bilingual)
Processor: Intel? Core? Duo Processor T2450 2.0GHz
Ram: 1 GB DDR2 / 2 GB
HDD: 160.0 billion bytes
VideoMobile Intel? 945GM Express Chipset 256MB

And it won't shut down! You shut it down using the start menu tab and it restarts. I changed the settings on the shutdown button to actually shut it down, and it restarts. I use the physical button to shut it down and it works fine, but comes back up with the windows did not shut down correctly error when rebooted. Now, the kicker, when it is not plugged into the ac power and is running off of the battery, it is just fine!

What I have done so far is update to the latest updates for windows. I installed the latest drivers from the toshiba website and other vendor sites. Updated the Bios. Changed all sorts of settings in the power options and nothing works.

Any Ideas?

A:Automatic Restart Of Laptop

i've got a Dell laptop so it might be different on mine, but when i was looking at the BIOS yesterday, there was a part of the BIOS that allowed you to control what the power button did when the power supply was plugged in or not. i know you've said you've updated the BIOS but have you seen this in the BIOS.

another one, maybe a little bit stupid, but when you shut your computer down, are you clicking on the power button option, or choosing 'Shut Down' option for the drop down menu. i say this because for the first day or so of using Vista for the first time, i was clicking the button that has the same symbol as the power button on the laptop, and it was just hibernating, rather than turning off.

hope this helps, but i'm just a newbie lol, so someone who knows what they're talking about might have an answer

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.

Hey there! I recently assembled my own custom PC (see specs lower down) and when all the parts were assembled it turned ugly. When I started the computer it turns on fine, for about 3 seconds. Then it turns itself off again, 5 seconds after that it turns itself on again. It then repeats this cycle into eternity...According to another forum I visited it might be that my haswell refresh processor won't go together with the standard bios version of the h87 chipset. But I never got a clear answer from them...Could someone please help me with this .

Specs :
Chassi : fractal design arc XL
Graphiccards : 2x6950 2gb
Ssd : corsair force 60gb
Hdd : western digital green 500gb
Psu : silverpower 750W
Memory: corsair xms3 2x4gb
Cpu: i5-4690
Motherboard : gigabyte z87x-OC
 

A:automatic restart after 5 seconds

I have a XP Pro machine at home and I am in the process of doing some things that will take a long time to complete (several hours). The problem is, Automatic Update just updated and keeps prompting me to restart. I know if I just leave the PC, it will eventually restart on its own which will kill everything I am doing right now. How do I disable automatic restarting so it doesn't do this? I don't have a server or active directory running. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks

Hi guys , im using windows XP.

I got a problem which when I tried to start the windows , it auto-reboot.
I tried formatting the windows , but when It comes to "starting windows" , a BSOD occured.
I tried using the Automatic System Recovery , but then it ask me to put the file in a floppy disk and press enter when ready.
I tried to get info Safe Mode or Last Good Configuration , but its the same , auto-reboot.

Can anyone help me on this ? I almost fed up on fixing this
 

A:Automatic Restart at Starting Windows

Let us know what the error number of the BSOD is, that will sort of help. To me it may sound like bad hardware, especially memory.

Hopefully a new and exciting one for the experts.

Some weeks ago my desktop (Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit) started crashing sometimes, mostly when I put it into suspend mode. It could generally be restarted by powering up again, sometimes a couple of times. I didn't do anything unusual at the time such as major new hardware or programs.

Now the problem is systematic and I can't really boot anymore in normal mode. Windows 7 hangs on the screen with the four-colored animated window early in the process.

I've tried:

* The auto-repair option when booting. This reports an error for which no solution is known:

StartupRepairOffline
1 6.1.7600.16385
2 same number
3 unknown
4 21200699
5 ExternalMedia
6 2
7 NoRootCause
Operating system 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
"Gebietsschema" (German word) 1031

* The repair tools on my Windows 7 installation disc. Again no joy.

* Re-installing Windows 7. I did this as an "upgrade", not as a completely fresh install, as I couldn't face re-installing programs and getting user data off and on. The re-install itself did seem to finish. But every time the computer had to be restarted it would freeze. I then turned it off and on manually, and it continued as expected.

* sfc /scannow

* Memory test

* Booting with a protocol file (F8, ntbtlog.txt).

* Fixing the master boot record.

I've not tried restoring to my only system image (9 months old), as I thought this cannot be better than re-ins... Read more

A:Boot, automatic restart don't work

What external media do you have plugged into the system? Things like phones, external hard drives, other USB/1394/eSATA devices? Try unplugging everything external to see if the system will boot.

Can you boot into Safe Mode with Networking?

Please zip up the contents of the C:\Windows\Minidump folder (if there is anything) and upload it with your next post.

Please do this also:
- Go to Start (or press the “Win” and “R” keys at the same time), type in "msinfo32" and press Enter
- When the utility opens, save a copy of it as an .nfo file, and another copy as a .txt file
- Zip them up and upload them with your next post

A:Numerous rundll32.exe's & automatic restart

Make a folder on your hard drive, like My Documents\HJT
Download Hijackthis.
Unzip the file to the folder on your hard drive.

Double click on Hijackthis.exe then click on the "Scan" button, then click on "Save Log".

Copy and paste it back here and someone will be happy to review it.

Don't make any changes until instructed to do so.

This will fit on a floppy so if you have to use another computer.

Hi,
I have a Windows 7 Home Premium and every time I log on to my use account, a blue screen pops up saying 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent your computer'. Before I can even do anything, it shuts off within 20 seconds.

At first, this was happening to everyone's users account on my computer, but now it's only happening to mine because earlier today, the two other users both were able to get on their accounts with no problems.

Does this mean that my account is the problem? Can someone help me and possibly go through the steps to help me fix this problem?

P.S. I been looking around and saw this Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10, so I downloaded it onto a disk. I tried running it on my computer, but I guess it doesn't work on Safe Mode. Any help is greatly needed, even if it doesn't involve the Kaspersky Disk.

I also have my re-installation DVD, but when I tried to run it in Safe Mode, it wasn't possible, and my computer shuts off too quickly before I can get a chance to run it in regular mode.
Thanks in advance,
Jas.

If you cannot even get into safe mode there is a very good chance that your problem is due to hardware, ie memory, hard drive etc. I will give you the information necessary to allow us to help you, but you will have to boot.

If you cant get it to boot, do you have an install CD?
If you have no install cd, do you have stuff that you want to save, before we proceed?

Hello, my laptop appears to have caught the sirefef virus yesterday I'm not sure which version but I saw several listed when my Microsoft Security Essentials kicked in to quarantine it, I'll try my best to remember what happen and explain it.

I was on Goggle searching and then I got the annoying Get Answers page so I closed the browser and ran my Malwarebytes and it found about 5 trojans and cleaned them out but suddenly my MSE was shut off and I tried to turn it back on but it didn't work, so I tried to uninstall and re-install it again and it seem to have work after reinstalling. It started to located a virus name sirefef, there were several located so I tried to quarantine, however I got a message that said "You are about to be logged off: Windows has encountered a critically problem and will restart automatically in one minute. Please safe your work now.". Within one minute I was restarted while in process of quarantine.

After restarting, it started to pop the same message again and forced another auto restart. So I went to F8 mode and tried to do it in Safe Mode with Networking, same message and auto restart happened again. I did this with just Safe Mode only, and same thing happened again. I also tried the options Disable automatic restart upon failure and Use last known good configuration mode and no luck there either. I have also tried the Repair you PC option and managed to do a System Restore but that didn't work.
