More about system restarted again
  1. Go to advanced tab in system properties (control panel), and click the settings button next to 'startup and recovery' and uncheck the 'automatically restart' checkbox.
    This way, the system won't restart when there is an error and you will have time to read the exact error code on the blue screen. Google the error code and see how to resolve the problem.

    I'd also recommend running memtest to see if you have a problem with your memory and make sure that your power supply is not a flaky one. Are you playing a game when it restarts? What applications are running when it restarts?

    Thaks for the tips i will apply and will let you know the results
    no i am not playing any type of games it is getting restarted in any condition.(No specific condition at all)

    will try to run memtest but i thik as memory should not be the problem as the system was running fine with the old RAM and even i have changed the new RAM with old one but the problem is still there..
    hope your tips will do the best.

  4. Hi JJ

    Your tip of unchecking restart automatically is working but still it is getting restarted at some time.can u suggest me what might be the other cause of the system getting restarted as RAm is working fine.

    Thanks in advance

    Umesh - The point behind preventing your computer from automatically restarting itself is so that you can read and write down the error code which will be displayed. That error code will give a starting point to troubleshoot, since you can look it up at http://support.microsoft.com
  6. Perhaps his PC doesn't restart with a BSOD.

    This very well could be true. But that is also useful information: Presuming all connections are solid, restarts with no BSOD make a pretty strong suspect of a failing Power Supply. Secondary suspect in that case would be the mother board.
  8. Hi,

    Same problem occured to me it is getting resolved when i do end process to some which are on my account name from the task manager when the system gets started.

    Thank you
