Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5400US PC Desktop ?

My computer is on windows will reboot in 28 sec. then when it reboots it goes back to that screen


Answers :

Do you mean you see a message saying, "the PC will shutdown in 28.. 27... 26..."?

In that case it is probably a corrupt system component, possibly due to a virus. Try booting from a "forensics CD" (you find several ISOs ready to burn with Google) and run a system scan. Then, try repairing the installation using the Windows Recovery Console.

If the damage isn't too great you just MIGHT be able to boot in safe mode by pressing F5 or F8 as soon as the PC boots, then running the System File Check utility (SFC /SCANNOW).

Even so, the system may display some instability due to an incomplete recovery. Once booted, however, you have the option of backing up your data and reinstall the OS.
Usually a device driver or a Windows update got corrupted, try starting in safe mode and remove any new devices that were recently added that could be a culprit. Alternately, try using windows system restore and go back to before the problem occured. Hardest part is figuring out what is causing the problem.
