PC loads to Windows XP loading screen then restarts

Q: PC loads to Windows XP loading screen then restarts

Ok so I got into work today and an employee was having issues with their PC. It's a Compaq built machine with Windows XP. The machine boots up into the loading screen, says it's loading and then restarts and gives me the option to go into safemode and all that because the machine was not properly shut down.

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.

In short Im at a loss here and I can't seem to figure it out. He needs the PC back ASAP and I'm running low on time now.

Any ideas or suggestions?

Preferred Solution: PC loads to Windows XP loading screen then restarts

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: PC loads to Windows XP loading screen then restarts

Does choosing safe mode allow you to boot the PC to Windows? It may be that Windows is crashing or hitting a blue screen and restarting because it's configured to do that.

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.

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)

Please help me in solving my problem. Thanks for reading

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.

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?

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

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 tried, putting a xp installation cd in but i cant seem to boot from it.

PLEASE ADVISE, THANKS

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!

Hi everyone. Okay, as the title says, I cannot get my computer past the Windows loading screen.I tried in safe mode, taking out one stick of RAM, switching the sticks around, anything I thought would work and nothing.I had recently gotten rid completely of AntivirusPro 2009 and could finally download AVG.After downloading it, I did a full scan and it found roughly 6 viruses.The one virus that I thought was odd was winlogon.exe, obviously you can't delete that and I'm pretty sure AVG has no access to delete that either.But anyways, after all that happened, I had to restart my computer as AVG instructed, thus starting the endless cycle of restarting after the windows loading screen.If you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know.

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.

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.

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.

My computer started to do this wierd thing where it would load at the windows screen, then go to a blue screen, then restart.

It tells me its shutting down to prevent memory loss, also tells me these numbers:

0x0000007E (0xC0000006, 0x806A276D, 0xF789E6E8, 0xF789E3E4)

Before this started Windows prompted me to download a service pack, It worked fine ulti about two days later.

So I start the computer in safe mode and do system restore, that doesent work. I started again and did a virus scan and it wouldent let me. So after trying and trying I finally gave up, I had nothing i wanted on that hard drive, so I decided just to reinstall windows. I pop the CD in there, and it asks me if I want to repair, I tried that. Now it wont even let me run safe mode.

I do boot from cd, but when it loads the CD i cant see anything but a blue screen, like it froze or my screen doesent load it.

What should I do? I don't care if I have to erase everything on the hard drive, I just wanna know how I can use my computer again.

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.

A:Windows XP Will Not Start, Hangs On Loading Screen, Then restarts. Cannot enter S/M.

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

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 ><

Try to enter the BIOS, and reset the BIOS, and then restart into normal mode once again. See whether that resolves your issue

Bare with me if I do not supply enough information. I have read a few other posts and feel that I have most of the information requested, I am sorry if I do not.

I figure this is worth mentioning as well, I am currently running my computer in Safe Mode with Networking as I type this post.

Prior Problems:
1) A few days ago (2 to 3 days) ago my computer was infected with Antivirus XP 2008 which was fixed to my knowledge when I downloaded and ran Malware Bytes' Anti-malware. 9/1/08 was the last functioning day of my PC which was the day I downloaded Microsoft Powerpoint Viewer. While browsing your forums and others I saw "remove any Malware" from your pc and so I uninstalled the program Malware Bytes' Anti-malware.

Current Problem: My PC loads and does not get past the Windows XP loading screen where on the bottom of the screen it shows the little loading bar. The loading bar simply continues forever.

Side Problems:
1) The loading screen is moved over about 3 inches to the right. It appears as if my screen is too small for the XP loading screen. This screen has always been like this and I highly doubt that this is the cause of the never ending loading bar.

2) For the last, month or so, when I boot up my system will bring me to a screen saying "Warning Low System Voltage, press F1 to continue." Or something roughly along those lines. I have always pressed F1 and have never had a problem. I'm not confident that this problem should be the prob... Read more

Yep. I have no idea why. Came home one day and it was off. Tried to boot it, made it to the Loading Screen, then powered off.

Thought it might be a problem with the power...
BUT it starts up in safe mode fine.

I have tried:
Unplugging all un-necessary devices.
Leaving it off for a while.
Checked for anything suspicious.

AND yes, I tried a system restore a couple times.
BUT, now when I try to do it, all the restore points are GONE.

SO, what's my problem?
Yes, I'm running XP with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor.

Was there any recent hardware or driver changes ? If so, you might want to use the install disk to do a system restore and see if you can boot back in.

Once i had kept the hardware password from the BIOS and then i was not able to remove it. But then some how i managed to remove it. But after that my computer restarts as soon as the windows 7 logo starts to appear. even the windows 7 logo has not yet fully completed loading and before it completes the loading the computer gets restarted. and i think i am not able to access any safe mode or safe mode with networking. Has my hard drive crashed ? Please give the appropriate solution.

Hi all, new to these forums and desperate for help. I'm kind of a computer newbie so I'll try my hardest to describe my current situation.

My computer is around 3 yrs, a Duron if I'm not wrong. Lately its been giving me problems, but currently it automatically restarts after the Windows loading page. Safe mode is inaccessible, it restarts after all the scripts load. I have no idea how to proceed from here.

A couple of days before the exact same thing happened, until I reformatted the main drive. However, whenever I try to reformat it gives me blue screen errors and it was by a stroke of luck and 3 days of trying that I managed to get it up. I have not reformatted currently, and am currently asking for advice here.

Addition information, I DO NOT have the windows auto restore disk or anything, I'm using a burnt copy of my cousin's with my own authentication key. I have no idea what my RAM is.

Suggestions on how to proceed from here anyone?

Ok, so I turn on my computer, and it acts like it wasn't shut down properly and asks how to start windows. I say start windows normally, and it restarts itself and does the same thing. So then I chose safe mode. It runs through a bunch of files, and then restarts. So i chose last known good config, and it restarts. Really have no clue what's going on. I though it was a hardware issue, so I replaced the PSU and fans, but that didn't do the trick. I don't get any kind of bluescreen, and I can't get into windows to set one to come up because safe mode won't work either. Any help?? Thanks

Hey everyone,

For the last month or two, my computer has been acting stragely. Whenever I turn it on, it always restarts itself before Windows has time to load.

Actually, restarts is probably the wrong word - it's more of a hang, really, because the computer dosen't restart as such, but just sits there, idle, while the monitor turns itself off and the power light starts flashing, just like it does when it's in standby mode.

Consequently I have no choice but to press the reset button on the computer, so I now have to restart the PC five or six times every time I turn it on, before I even get into Windows. This is particualrly awkward when the disc checker comes up to scan my disc for consistency errors, and I have to wait ten minutes for it to finish before I can try again.

Does anyone know what could be causing this, and what can I do about it? I should mention that it NEVER hangs when I'm actually in Windows - once the Welcome screen comes up, I know I'm safe until the next time I turn it off.

My system specs are:

Athlon XP2000+
Epox 8K3A motherboard
256MB DDR RAM
GeForce4 Ti4600
60GB HDD
Windows XP Home Edition (SP1)

I'd really appreciate any help anyone could offer! Thanks.
 

A:Comp restarts before Windows loads

Could be a lot of things... First thing I would try is finding out if it is a problem with your Windows installation or not.

Easiest way to do that is to boot from something other than your hard drive (a floppy or CD) and see if that works. If you get the same problem then it has nothing to do with Windows - it is a hardware issue.

I have a problem with my computer.
As soon as the computer loads the Windows 98 OS it restarts.
If you start the computer in Safe mode it is working OK, but in Normal mode it shuts down and restarts as soon as it loads the desktop.
I already changed the memory, power supply, cleaned the computer with compressed air, changed the hard drive and reloaded the OS. Nothing works.
Can anybody help me please?
 

A:As soon as the computer loads the Windows 98 OS it restarts

Alex,

Chances are you are loading a bad driver. When you boot into Safe Mode only the minimum drivers are loaded in order to get the system up.

I forget what the selection is (Oldtimer's disease), but you can boot such that each command is displayed during the process, so that you can see exactly where the system 'pukes'.

Perhaps someone will jump in with a comment on this if you do not know what I am describing.

The laptop loads fine when starting up, but once I get to sign in screen, it begins to load and load, even up to hours, after putting in the password. Afterwards, the content on the main screen often takes long periods of time load as well. Loading is very slow, but the strange thing is, when I do get to play a game, everything works as if it were brand new, very smoothly. I need some help solving this!

My older brother gave me his computer to fix (I'm kind of the computer whiz of the family). After I booted it up, it got to the Windows XP Home loading screen and it loads. After it loads, the screen goes black, and then the cursor comes up. after a little while of this, the computer then shuts down and restarts. The computer is an HP Pavilion 6645c, with XP Home on it (SP1 I think) I think it was the computer he found on the side of the road somewhere, so it doesn't have any keycodes or anything on it. The BIOS are from 2001, so I think that it is new enough to have the XP Home OEM version, but I'm not sure. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Solved: Computer restarts after Windows XP loads

In its standard form, it has a 566 MHz Celeron, about the minimum for a "useable" install of XP, however it also only had 64 MB of RAM, which is insufficient. It shipped only with Windows 98SE

More importantly there is a warning on the HP website that says:
"NOTE: The only operating system supported on this HP Pavilion PC is MS Windows 98."

That warning may be for a good reason, its not a common type of statement. The hardware used may simply not be suitable for later versions of Windows?

I downloaded and ran an .exe which was marked as safe by Norton antivirus. when i ran it a command prompt window opened up and all i could see was some .exe being ran on it. Instantly after that, my computer restarted and At the part where windows xp starts loading, thats when the computer just restarts. It just does that every time, i tried with safe mode, and with "last good config," but it still just restarts right when windows starts loading.Right now im on my bleepty 2001 dell computer which i had to dig out of the closet.

HI all,

recently i am unable to load in to windows, the loading screen appears with the XP logo and then a very quick blue screen of death appears followed by a restart.

I have tried booting in to the recovery console using:
chkdsk
finxboot
and fixmbr to no success.

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

Is there any way of being able to back up files i have on my hard disk without being able to get in to windows?

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.

Could be any number of things: failing hard drive, corrupted system files due to crash, or failing hard drive or memory, failing motherboard, failing CPU... you might be able to do a "repair installation" to fix it... or it may be beyond hope.

The motherboard settings and bios load fine... then the normal windows XP loading screen comes up and loads then as soon as it finishes the screen goes all black and my monitor (flatscreen LCD) says that it is not reciving a signal... So I boot it in safe mode and it boots fine. I have already reinstalled my VGA drivers and still nothing. I have been attempting to fix this for a little over 3 hours now and still nothing. HELP PLEASE!

A:Bios Loads fine, Windows loads then black screen, boots fine in safe

Disconnect the cathodes and the try to boot. If it works then your power supply isnt putting out enough juice for all the extras.
