Computer keeps rebooting after startup

February 16, 2010 at 03:59:23
Specs: Windows Vista Home Edition
Whenever I hit the startup button, the computer
indeed fires up, stays for about 4-5 seconds and then
automatically shuts down. Then it starts the process
all over; thus, it doesn't even manage to boot
Windows, the screen remaining black. I don't
remember downloading/ accessing dangerous sites
before this, though what I do remember is that it kept
giving me a cmd.exe error whenever I wanted to shut
the computer down. I'd like to know the nature of the
problem and if possible, a solution to it. Cheers in
advance for reading my issue.

... try tapping <F8> key @ bootup select the "repair" option

... next time you see the "cmd" error write it down.

Yes, I have tried, but unfortunately it did not work... maybe
because it doesn't even manage to boot up at all. But still,
thanks again for replying.

No, I still cannot access BIOS and if the list is right, for Intel
PC's I have to press DEL. Nothing happened. My wild guess is
that it tries to boot up Windows, but since some file is corrupt,
it restarts to try again... and again... and again...

... entering your bios bypass's before Windows loads

... try removing one of your "ram" sticks bootup with just one, swap them over, could be a hardware issue!

... also worth replacing the cmos battery (watch type) if it has'nt been done for years!
