Thanks for your reply. I resolved the problem by putting the machine back into the factory settings default. It took quite a long time but worked. I was only able to do this because the machine is a spare computer so I was not worried about the losing the few files saved on it.
Thanks again,

Peter

The following is worth a try first - it just "might" get it out of the loop:

Disconnect from domestic power supply.
Remove battery if it is a laptop.
Hold power off/on button in for about 15 seconds.
Put it back together and hope...

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It's probably flashing a blue screen just before it restarts. You can disable the restarts from the F8 boot menu so you can actually read the blue screen:

Many thanks for your reply. How can you get the blue screen to appear? When the safe options, normal restart menu appears on screen, the restarts are stopped when I press F8 but there is no blue screen. I have noticed a blue screen appearing sometimes but so briefly I cannot read it.

Thanks again for you reply

If you've disabled automatic restarts and it's not working or isn't stopping at a blue screen them something else must be going on. Try scandisk as Larry suggests.

Did you make any changes to the system prior to the problem starting?

Thanks for feedback. Yep factory reset is a good "cure-all" if you haven't got any of your own files that are too important. It is usually installing all the programs, files and updates that take all the time, especially if you have tailored a computer to your own liking.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
