    Help...Boots into windows then restarts, infinite loop...

    Here's the latest. The computer boots up fine, gets into windows, and just about as my desktop comes up the computer restarts. It's not always at the same point, sometimes it's able to almost completely load windows, other times its before windows even loads, while the splash screen is still going. I don't get it. Power supply issue maybe?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    you may be getting a BSOD and have your computer set to automatically restart....

    Right Click My Computer ----> Properties

    Advanced Tab

    Startup And Recovery -->Settings

    Under System Failure, uncheck Automatically restart.

    If this is the problem, youll be able to see the actual error then go from there.

    Yeah, I figured this too, but recall that it happens even before windows boots sometimes, at the windows splash screen.

    Plus, I can't even get into windows to change it, unfortunately...

    Thanks for the idea though

    You think? Would it just go bad all the sudden it's been working for 2-3years.

    Possible I guess, but again...nothing's changed. Why this all the sudden?

    But do you see a blue screen flash, even if its a split second?

    Ive recorded the screen with my camera and then froze that exact frame to find the error.

    Nope. And to the best of my knowledge, it's not possible to have a blue screen before windows even starts...
