it gets the stage where it ask's you to boot up in safe mode or normal and restarts. any idea?
boot into safemode then when safemode boots reset the pc using start turn off computer then restart then should boot up into windows if not post up with your next probs
If it reboots by itself then it's probably trying to boot normally and hitting a problem. Boot in safe mode and see what happens if it boots in safe mode but not normally then you need to take things off the starup list as one is messing up.
doesnt work in safe mode either. get the the MUP file then restarts
tried just switching off and start as normal
i know 3 people (me being 1) who had this prob, got to the windows screen then it would restart and we all had to reformat, hope this isnt the same thing as someone said it was a virus
it happened to a friend of mine on a fresh install of windows on a new sata HD so a virus was highly unlikely also it was a 64bit.in the end it just started on it's own still wouldn't reboot then after installing the graphics driver (ati) it restarted of course though problem fixed.......wrong still did the same but it does start from a cold boot.Still looking for the answer done all the usual diagnostics and ways of repairing but still nothing.
excuse my grammer i can't type fpr toffee lol
yea ive tried loads of things with it its just getting beyond a joke. im going to put it into a shop for a system diagnostic check thing. costs £25 but i cant wait much longer to get this thing fixed
will let you know if i find out what it was
have you added any new usb devices recently? try unplugging them.
I see this a lot with XP. I don't know what causes it but it is usually fixed by running chkdsk /p from recovery console or if not by that then by running a repair reinstall. You shouldn't have to format.
