    Locked

    by hanifaso ·

    I have installed Windows XP home ed. Everytime when I logout the user account instead of showing the login screen, the PC will automatically reboot.

      Go to Start> control panel>system>Advanced and unchech box labeled Automatically restart. Then see if there are any errors when you log off.

      The auto reboot would option is good if your system is crashing consistently.. Here he states its only when the user logs off..

      My question, does this happen for all users or only one?

      If its only one, I would save their data to a new folder, logon as an admin user and delete the profile for the problem user..Then recreate if needed.

      If you system in question only has one user, then I would look for virus activity. when you hit the logout button it should launch the rundll system logout sequence, not the reboot command.

      Please keep me updated with this issue, interesting…:)

      Good Luck

      This would note that your system is crashing check the device manager for any yellow exclamations beside the hardware

      Make sure that video card is installed properly.

      Check the system for any IRQ or Hardware conflicts,which will cause the system to reboot,try basic troubleshooting,because this type of problem can be caused by any number of things.

        Use the task manager to see what programs are running when you shut down the computer,programs that are still running will cause the system to reboot.
