What is the make and model of your computer?

I'd check in your manual, the beeps usually tell you what the issue is.

Do you get a BSOD?

Have you added any new hardware to your computer recently?

What do Windows error logs say about it?

Stop the computer restarting on failure - see here:

After you have done this you will probably get a BSOD which will give information that might help us to help you. The exact error message and at least the first set of figures are particularly useful. If a file name is mentioned then let us have that too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I imagine it will attempt to restart eventually if you don't hit a key to tell it to do so.

Didn't get too far with beep codes - saw some reference to video card issues.
I think a hardware fault is most likely, in which case it is probably not worth paying for a repair, and diving into a laptop is not really viable unless you are into that sort of thing.

I did wonder about System Restore but it sounds like it has been going on for some time and in any event it won't help if it's a hardware fault.

Keep an eye on here for other ideas though.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
