Restart Problem

By armyman1999 ·
Hello Sirs,

I have a dell desktop with very old specifications: 40GB HDD , 1GB RAM, and I have been working on this desktop using another hard drive with 250 GB, but suddenly the first hard drive(40GB) stopped from working, The Problem is that once I open the computer, the screen of "start windows normally" appears, and when i just enter it, it restarts itself.
unfortunately i have kept some important files inside.

What do you recommend me to do?

I appreciate your valuable advice.

restarting problem usually a hardware issue

by wanmanly In reply to Restart Problem

Automatic restarting is almost always a hardware issue, booting in safemode or with a bootdisk and running "chkdsk /f" on the drive at a command prompt will probably get a failing drive to startup.
Slave drive to another system to remove files if that fails.
