Hi guys, all the sudden yesterday my computer just started to reboot, it would get to the end a quick blue screen appeared then it would reboot again. the blue screen goes so quick I cannot even read it. Anyways I was prompted to use the restoration disk and reluctantly went through the process, lost everything, and it worked for a day. Now it seems to be doing the exact same thing. I rule out a virus because I have a new install on the computer right now, what else could cause this?

Can you get it to boot into windows at all?

If you can then rightclick "My Computer" Select Properties>Advanced> and in the Startup & Recovery section select Settings tab.
Untick the "Automatically Restart" box under the System Failure heading. Next time you bluescreen it won't reboot and you can post back with detailed error message.

If it won't stay running long enough get into windows you have a hardware problem.

"Oh, get ready for something
That you'll never know,
You won't see it comin
But I promise you'll know,
It's the Big Show!"

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Hi guys, so I did what you asked and I am able to read the blue screen. The error is this..


I did some research and they said it could be from new hardware, bad ram or possibly a fan dieing. Now one important note, when my computer all the sudden died, I had comcast here switching my service from Verizon and it happened right when he shut verizons internet down. I hope this helps.

Thanks guys.

And Jam, its quite alright, I think its funny too.
