Dell crashed during an update and keeps rebooting now. Any ideas on how to fix this?
Thanks.

Is this the only time it crashes? Can you download other stuff? What update is it? Any error messages? Did you look in Event Viewer for problems that occur at the same time. You might want to turn off Reboot on System Failure to get the error message


Open System Properties via Start > Control Panel > Performance and Maintenance > System
[ System Properties may also be opened using the WinKey+Pause key combination ]
Select the Advanced tab and then click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section
In System Failure section, clear the checkbox next to Automatically Restart
Click OK and OK to exit

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
