Okay, so for about a month now my computer has been restarting on its own. For a while I thought it was because it was getting hot. And it was pretty hot, but now I'll walk away to get a drink and come back and it will restart while I was away. AND on top of that, when it does it brings up a startup manager type thing, where it scans and finds out what the problem was and tries to fix it so it can start back up. At first that was okay, it would fix it then start up fine. But now it just scans and scans only to say it can't fix it and to try again. If I don't hit cancel it will do this forever. If I hit cancel it lets me start it up fine. I'm at a total loss. Is it permanent damage? Or can I undo my destruction with the factory restart disk? Please help!!
