Hi i was in the middle of copying some files over to my MP3 player, then my system just rebooted.

And now every time i turn my pc on after you have a choice to enter the BIOS it just restarts it self?

So it gets pass the first screen, but it restarts before the Windows Logo comes up, any ideas?

Ive tried reseting the BIOS, took the Battery out, reset the jumpers, unplugged the Hard Drive, Ram tried everything.

So could someone help me out.

Not really to sure what it could be?

Thanks

Sounds like something is overheating like the CPU or perhaps duff memory. How old are the components your using in there? Could also be PSU not providing enough power, do some tests though first and let us know what the temps are of CPU, motherboard etc and then do a memtest and find out if the RAM is faulty.

I haven't overclocked the system, my components are about 6months old and how would i do a memtest if i cant get onto windows.

My CPU temp is around 40

You taken the USB pen out?
(I've done this then scratched head for 30 secs. :p )

Can you press F8 when booting then disable automatic restart in case of Blue screen.
Then see if it actually gives you a blue screen?

Also try chkdsk if you can get into safemode with CMD prompt.

I can press F8 and the list of commands come up, safe mode, last known good config etc, but when ever i press any of them the pc just restarts.

And when i press disable automatic restart theirs no blue screen, it just restarts itself.

Sorry, completely forgot about not being able to boot into windows. That temp on the CPU is after how long? If thats after 10 or 15minutes seems to be ok, might be worth posting your spec. Other than that it could be like I said faulty RAM, or PSU. Do you have another system that you could test the RAM on?
