Continuous Rebooting

By droche ·
hp Vectra continuously rebooting, irrespective of mode (DOS or Windows 95, stand-alone/logged into network). Could this be due to CMOS failure? (h/d, power transformer etc. all replaced). Power management configured correctly.

Check if your processor is overheating, have you changed jumpers for it, if you changed the processor did you set the jumpers correctly, make sure CPU fan is working properly, if you dont have one put one on, do you have correct memory sticks on your motherboard, be careful with how you install memory.

I had this once when I tried to install Win98. One of the files got corrupted on install. Try reinstalling the OS if all else fails. That may solve the problem.

It's most likely the memory. I would try replaceing it and then if that doesn't work look into the processor. I all else fails reinstall you OS

It may be possible, as someone else has mentioned, that something within the Win95 operating system has gone bad. If that is the case, reinstalling the Operating System will clear that up. If that does not work, go to the manufacturer's website and see if there is a BIOS update for your motherboard. Some systems have been known to constantly reboot due to an outdated BIOS.
