Disable Reboot on Error

by willcomp In reply to windows keeps rebooting

To change the recovery settings to disable automatic rebooting:

1.Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2.Click the Advanced tab.

3.Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4.Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times.

5.Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Note the stop error message and post in a reply.

It's likely driver related. An analysis of minidump(s) will usually pinpoint the cause.

Does it reboot in SAFE MODE?

by cody In reply to windows keeps rebooting

Does your computer reboot when you are in SAFE MODE? You said you've done a few things in safe mode, so I'm assuming it doesn't reboot in safe mode.

If that is the case, then something that is starting up with Windows is causing it to hang and reboot.

Have you run MSCONFIG and checked out the [startup] tab to see what is starting up? What you can try is to DISABLE THEM ALL, reboot then see what happens.

Let us know.

Well...

by cmiller5400 In reply to msconfig

Did you follow the other advice about unchecking the reboot on error? The machine is probably throwing a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) and it is going by too quickly for you to read...
