Computer started rebooting randomly

Postby guest » Wed Dec 07, 2011 7:02 pm

My client's computer started rebooting randomly about a week ago, maybe 2 - 3 times per day. He has looked at the logs and error reports, but he can't find the specific problem. No new software and hardware installed since the problem started.

Here I suggest you reboot this computer into a clean mode and check if this symptom will disappear.

Perform a Clean Boot:
---------------------------
1. Click "Start", go to "Run", and type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) in the open box to start the System Configuration Utility.
2. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
3. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
4. Click "OK" to restart your computer to Selective Startup environment.
5. When the "System Configuration Utility" window appears, please check the "Don't show this message or launch the System Configuration Utility when Windows starts" box and click OK.

Note: Temporarily disabling the Startup Group only prevents the startup programs from loading at startup. This shouldn't affect the system or other programs. We may still manually run these programs later.

Return from a Clean Boot state
1. Click "Start"->"Run", type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks) and press ENTER.
2. On the "General" tab, click "Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services".
3. Click "OK". Click "Restart" when you are prompted to restart your computer.
