My PC is running on Window. It keeps rebooting itself whenever I start it up or down. It begins alongside the whole 'would you would like to come from safe mode or start windows normally' screen too. Then it gets to the load screen where it says windows XP with the blue load bar underneath then it suddenly restarts again oneself. I checked the hardware with extreme Boot CD also. It always asserted there are no errors found after having a full scan.


So, I need help to resolve rebooting issue?

But it sounds like you are on safe mode?  Get back to normal mode and see if it happens again.

If I remember correctly, if you tap the F8 key while the BIOS screen is showing, among other options offered is 'Last known good configuration'. Have you tried this ?


If you have the original XP install disc you could try a repair install. First of all, check in the BIOS that the first boot choice is the CD/DVD drive and adjust as necessary, then open the drive, put the disc in and re-start. It will now boot from the install disc and you will come to a screen which offers the choice of 'Install / Repair ?'. Choose repair and let it do it's thing.


If that doesn't work you may be looking at a complete re-install, but you will want to recover your data from the computer before you do this. If the above doesn't work for you, post back and I will offer instructions on how to use a live Linux CD to recover your data.
