Windows 2000 Reboots after logging in

By ninet4 ·
When I start up a system running Windows 2000, it gets all the way to the login. It starts to log in, the screen switches to black, as if it were going to adjust to my user settings for screen resolution and all that, but when the display comes back, it is rebooting. I have tried safemode, and safemode with dos prompt. Same result. What can I do to get windows to log in?

First check to make sure you donot have a virus on system,then run scandisk to check for any disk errors
Check the memory to make sure it is in the slots properly
Check the video card drivers,they may need to be updated

Still not sure what the problem was, ended up replacing the system.

Hi,

Also try the repair option off the Win2K CD. But if you have an up-to-date recovery floppy use that instead.

Cheers,
Tim.

I had this problem a while back. Resolved by replacing the network interface cards. My guess was the problem NICS had a power management feature that underwent some mode change at some stage of the login process.
I have Dell Demension XPS computersand I believe the factory-installed cards were 3COM 3C905B-TX. They had a cable running from the back of the card to the motherboard. I replaced them with 3CSOHO100-TX.

Hang in there. Have a lot on my plate right now, and not much time to try things out.
