Could you please provide the make and model of your computer?

I don't think reboot is the word you are looking for. Reboot simply means turning the computer off then on, which can be accomplished by pressing the power button once, waiting for all the lights to go off, and pressing it again.

So, after you log in, you don't see any error messages whatsoever?

Does Windows work booting into safe mode?

If so, what does it say in Windows Event Viewer (should be under System tab, will have a red X next to the entry)

Do all of the power lights and fans shut off suddenly?

Have you changed any settings in BIOS recently (any overclocking, perhaps?)

Probably you mean factory restore. Did you get any restore disk with the machine, or did you produce the restore on a flash drive (often suggested when the computer is new)?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Yeah, check to see if it boots to safe mode. It may be a screen resolution problem that you can fix there. Otherwise, windows 8 has a recovery option in control panel:

but of course that's no good if you can't boot to windows. I don't know exactly how that process works but I'm guessing when you choose that option it reboots to a restore partition on the drive. If that's the case there's probably a way to boot to it directly when windows is damaged. That might be explained in your system manual.

Don't forget to preorder your Hatch green chili for this fall. Many vendors ship world-wide.
