My Computer Keeps restarting

By Symo87 ·
Hi guys, I have this problem with this PC I'm trying to fix. It is a HP dx7500 It keeps on rebooting at start up, making strange sounds from the Mobo. I tested the power supply and it is working, reset BIOS, unseated and seated RAM, plugged and unplugged connectors but still the same issue persisted. I then swapped the current processor with another. Though the computer powered on without the restarts nothing was on screen and the chassis fan wasn't spinning. Kindly assist me analyze this issue

Rebooting

by rob In reply to My Computer Keeps restart ...

Can you start your computer in safe mode? If so, then this could be a falty driver. If not then you have some kind of hardware issue. But I would try running a repair on the OS or a roll back of the OS. Have you installed any new drivers prior to your computer getting in the a reboot cycle?
Have you tried to run a rapair or roll back on your system? Press and hold the F8 key as your computer starts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you will need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then shutting down and restarting your computer.
I hope this helps you and good luck

It doesn't boot past the HP start up screen.

It could be your USB mouse

Some of the old HP desktop have this issue, when the windows is ready for login and you move the mice, it just restarts. Two ways to avoid this would be either you use a mouse with PS2 connector or unplug the mouse while restart and plug in when you are on login screen.

I've never heard of this one so thanks for pointing it out. I usually start by removing all the physical devices including the HD connection to see if I can get a hold of the bios page. Sometimes a bad memory chip can also cause this so unplugging that can also help. You will need 1-memory chip to boot older machines.

I tried restarting it without any peripheral attached to it but still it keeps cutting the power
