hi guys thing is for the past 3 months everytime i start up my computer, before it gets to the windows page it shuts the computer off, and restarts again. My cousin who is a technician, it is not a fan problem as i would be hearing a bleeping noise and the computer wouldnt start up, he also said its not a HD problem as i dont get a disk error message. But he did say that its possibly windows is corrupt. Guys im so angry with this problem, what can i do and is he right.

Same in Safe Mode?
Did you try Last Known Good Configuration?
Do you have Windows CD?

Sounds like you have the auto reboot on STOP enabled...I would disable such and then maybe we can see what the problem is.

How To Disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/

You might also try running BlueScreenView - http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html.

Double-click the BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.

When scanning is done, Edit/Select All...then File/Save Selected Items. Save the report as BSOD.txt.

Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

I would lean towards a faulty piece of hardware such as the power supply.

Why safe mode, if the system boots into Windows normally?

You said, you can boot to Safe Mode.
Actually, you can boot to Safe Mode with Networking to download the program.
