Reboot loop after restart

By wesley.chin ·
After rebooting, the windows splash screen appears, screen is black, and then the computer reboots again. This sequence repeats indefinitely. At one point, manually enter safe mode, schedule a disk check, reboot and then boot normally. But then the reboot sequence starts again after restarting.

That kind of reminds me when you ring a ISP for Mail Settings

They say don't bother we'll E-Mail you the settings so you are not wasting bulk loads of our time.

I've never fully understood that logic though. :^0

Of course they also know that I go to bat for them when they have problems like that and sort it out for them.

Bingo

I probably should have implied safe mode in my post, as he did mention he got it up in safe mode so it was implied he would change settings there.

That thought crossed my mind too...

by wesley.chin In reply to Recovery

that is one of the things I had thought of. But if that is done, will I be able to enter safe mode?

If you can enter safe mode, then

Something that is not loaded for safe mode has been corrupted and should either be repaired, or deleted.

Use safe mode to change the reboot behavior as indicated in the post I ranted about.
When the computer next halts, note what program is causing the boot failure.
Next, boot back into safe mode and investigate the startup logs, where you often can see what the computer was doing when it stopped.
Hmm. In case something recently installed is causing these problems, then you could try rolling back to a recent restore point.

Ultimate solution: Back up all user data (from safe mode), then nuke the disk and reinstall the system.

A system restore might help

you can get to it from safe mode.
But if it's a hardware problem, this won't help - of course, that failure is in itself diagnostic.

Is interested in the immediate. The ins and the outs of diagnostics may, or, may not be, of immediate help.
