Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

The dell 330 keeps restarting to the WXP screen

Answers :

Is it a constaant restart without being able to use it at all, or does it restart at various intervals while using it? If it's the later, it's most likely a ventilation issue. Using canned air, blow out all the cooling fins around the case and blow the dust & dirt out of the cooling fans. Try to keep it on a hard surface when it's turned on. An under computer fan system will help .
Try this first, on the recovery CD there is an option repair just right before you press the F8(before you perform format) there is a selection that says press F8 to continue or R to repair, if you ss R it will Brin you to a command promt type "fixboot" and hit enter then type "fixmbr" the hit enter again type exit and see if your pc boot normally if it still restarts replace you memory card
