Unfortunately I have a problem. For the past two days my vista laptop has been restarting on its own, every time I log on. I will try and be as thorough as possible in my description of this problem to field the best results.
Since two nights ago I have been receiving error messages stating "Windows has encountered a critical error and will restart in one minute", then sure enough, it restarts. After logging back on, usually only a few seconds passes and the error message pops up again. The last thing I did on my computer before receiving this error message was install Windows Security Essentials and have it run a scan of my computer. I have been working on my computer for the past two days trying to figure out what the problem could be. Here is a list of things I have done.
-Boot in safe mode. (The error message still appeared)
-Boot from my CD drive and use a recovery disc to search the HDD (I used Kaspersky and AVG, neither worked)
-Open a cmd prompt while the computer was about to shut down and try shutdown -a (This did not work either)
The things I have done so far illustrate the depth of my knowledge of computers. I'm out of options as of now. Which is why I am here! haha. I would appreciate any advice/help anyone could give. I also monitor this thread in case anyone has any further questions about my situation. Thanks in advance!
