I have a dimension 3000 XP and my computer was working fine yesterday and today is just keeping restarting I ran a system restore on safe mode but it didn't work. I don't know why it keeps restarting like that. Is there any way to fix this problem? I have important folders and files that haven't backed up. Thanks in advance.
When your Windows XP keeps restarting, there are a few ways that can help you correct it and get your system back to normal. First of all, get into the Safe Mode to restore your system: Start Menu>Programs>Accessories>System Tools and choose System Restore. Second, If you didn't back up your system before, you can choose to repair your XP with the Windows XP Install Disc: boot your computer with the Windows XP Install Disc and select the option to repair your XP.
Don't have a Windows Install Disc or it still doesn't work? You need to createt a Windows bootable CD or USB that can help you access your computer and repair your Windows problems.
After purchasing this software, you'll get a download link and a license from Wondershare. Download and install it on a good-working computer, and then follow steps below to create a bootable CD/ USB drive and solve your XP boot issue.
To create a password reset disk, the first thing you need to do is to choose a program that can be burned into a bootable disk. Microsoft Media Creation Tool is such a kind of program, which permits you to enter the computer and reset the lost administrator password in Windows 7. You can use it in Windows 7, XP or Vista, and burn it into a CD/DVD or an external USB drive.
1. Insert your Windows Vista or Windows 7 disk into the DVD player and restart the computer.
2. You'll see the boxes of Language, Time and Currency and Keyboard in the next screen.
3. There are two options on the lower left side. One is "Repair your computer", and the other one is "What to know before installing Windows".
4. Click on the first one: "Repair your computer".
5. Windows will then try to find the installation directory for Vista or Windows 7, depending on what you have.
6. Next up is a screen with a box called Recovery Options. Click the first option, Startup Repair.
You'll see a Startup Repair box with the message "Startup Repair is checking your system for problems…".
7. When it's done, it will prompt you to reboot. If there is more than one problem it may reboot again to continue repairing.
8. At this time, you can plug out the DVD, restart your computer and everything should be working normally.
When the problem fixed, take out of the Bootable CD/ USB drive, and restart your computer as normal. Then you'll find that you can boot your computer successfully as normal.
