When I start up the computer it goes to the password screen and then restarts after I enter my password or after about 6 seconds and restarts and goes into the screen where I can choose safe mode, networking, command prompt or normally. I choose normally and then I enter my password again and then the same thing happens again. How do i fix this?

The problem your having is not related to entering in your password.
Windows is restarting the computer because the OS is crashing and automatically restarting.
What you have to do is disable that options so you can see the error and Google it on another PC to find a solution for it.

Turn on your PC and start hitting the F8 key until you see Advanced Boot Options at the top of the screen.
Use the arrow keys to select the option that says "Disable automatic restart on system failure".
The computer will continue to boot up but now will not automatically restart when a critical system error occurs.
Your going to see something like this:

You need to right the 2 lines I circled and search it to see what the problem might be.

Sorry I made this topic because I wanted help faster, but my original topic had someone reply already, so do I still need this topic open or closed?
