constant rebooting after power surge

April 5, 2013 at 05:51:57
Specs: Windows 7
have had blue screens but every thing worked.
boots up and everything looks normal then starts shutting down and reboots over and over. Tried repair but that just keeps going over and over with nothing fixed or no other information.

Download HWMonitor, install and monitor both the computer temperatures and voltages. Your hardware may have been damaged by the surge. Voltages should stay within +-5% of the stated value. For example the +12V rail should not go lower than 11.4V or higher than 12.6V.

Get HWMonitor from the link below.

Can you boot, enter the BIOS, then stay within the BIOS menu without the system rebooting?

Computer will not stay on long enough to download anything.

Everything comes up normally and I can get online or go to a doc. or website and within a minute it starts closing down and then rebooting. It does like a blink when it first comes on, rather like it is loading twice. I think there is malware on it too that won't let me do any cleans. I also noticed that my McAfee isn't running. Have done all the safe mode tests, etc. and so far it keeps doing the rebooting.

#2 above suggests you boot directly into the BIOS (setup) screens. Just set in there to see if the same thing happens. If it does, then the problem is definitely hardware, possibly overheating.

Post the brand a model.
