Computer keeps on rebooting itself..

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support (More info?)

Hi,

This is has already happened before but now its not stopping. Once i turn on
my com, it boots up normally. then after the win xp screen and before the
desktop appears, a blue screen flashes with some text on it. It dissappears
almost instantly so i can't read any of the text. After the screen vanishes,
the com just restarts and this keeps on going, until i just turn off the com.
So i can't use my com now...

any ideas why its happening? and any resolutions?

    Hi

    If you don't see any error messages, right click on My Computer, select
    Properties and then the Advanced tab. Click on Settings under Startup and
    Recovery and disable 'Automatically restart'. Next time your PC reboots,
    you should see a Blue Screen. Could you please post the Stop Code from the
    BSOD?

    Also, please have a look in the Event Viewer to see if any entries there may
    refer to the problem.

    I understand what your trying to say..but the com that has the problem can't
    even boot up properly. Even before it reaches the desktop screen...it already
    reboots. Currently i am using another com, which is why i can post.

    any other way to change the 'automatically restart' setting? The blue screen
    flashes far too quickly for me to be able to read what is written..

    Does the restart always occur at the same point? If not there is a
    possibility that your hardware is being overworked. Use the BIOS and try
    running your RAM at a slower speed (latency, timings).

    Yes it seems to restart at the same point. After the win xp screen and before
    the logon screen..
