Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

PC keeps restarting itself. Trying to log on to my pc ,get to first vista page to choose my account and it restarts. Cant get as far as the start up button to do anything.

Answers :

Reboot in safe mode (at very first manufacturers start-up screen, press and hold F8, choose "Boot in Safe Mode". When prompted, you can either a) System Restore to an earlier date, or B) load and then run anti-virus software. I would suggest updating your virus definitions first, then running a comprehensive virus scan BEFORE trying the System Restore (many re-boot issues are code-executed, and are usually because of a virus). If you need to do a restore, pick a date well before the problem occured, as is may be an older issue than just the re-boot problem!
