Having problems with your Compaq PC Desktops ?

My computer keeps restarting before loging in.

\015 I turn on my computer (compaq SR5234X) and it loads up. When I get to the opening Vista page to log in the computer it restarts and does it all over again. Can anyone help me? I have used a dust can and sprayed the inside, that didn't work. What else can I do?\015

Answers :

The fact that it does it at th same point each time would suggest a software error.

\015\012You should start in safe mode and see if you can get in that was (F8 whilst booting)
\015\012
\015\012If you can get in then check for any recently installed software and remove it (esp toolbars)
\015\012
\015\012While you are there run you anti-virus and any other clean up tools you have. when you are don't try again to start up the computer. If you see any error messages then take full note of them as they may well help others to help you
