How to Fix a Constantly Restarting Computer or Laptop

By Edited Nov 18, 2013 0 0

Everyone from time to time has come across this problem. This can actually be a very simple fix to this problem and not have to go to a costly service center. People tend to overlook some of the smallest things that can cause problem with any electronic device. I will show you now exactly how to troubleshoot this issue.

Things You Will Need


Step 1

First thing you should always do is check the power cable. Although it is unlikely that this is the cause it is still a good idea to check and make sure that everything is connected correctly and tightly.

Step 2

Next is to think of if you have recently installed any new hard ware or software. If you installed new hardware remove it and check to see if the problem is still there. If you installed new software tap F8 as the machine is starting up then choose Last Known Good Configuration. This will revert windows back to the last time you successfully logged into the machine.

Step 3

If you are still getting the reboot loop open up the machine. Check to make sure the fans are running then blow out all the dust with a can of compressed air. Dust can cause many strange problems in a computer and it is best to clean it out once a month to keep your machine running in good condition.

Step 4

Next step is to check your ram. Check each module individually after that I would recommend a repair shop. As the problem may lay within one of the components or the windows installations itself. If you would like to test the components yourself instructions on how to do so can be found in my post titled "My computer wont start" Array

Tips & Warnings

  • If you do not feel comfortable doing this go to a repair center
  • You do this at your own risk
