My Windows XP keeps Restarting Over and Over

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.

2 steps to access your repeatedly rebooting XP and fix the issue

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.

Step 1. Create a bootable CD/USB drive

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. Microsoft’s official tool for creating installation media and ISO images with Windows 10 is Media Creation Tool. You can download the latest version here – https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10
  2. Select Download tool now, and select Run. You need to be an administrator to run this tool.
  3. If you agree to the license terms, select Accept.
  4. On the What do you want to do? page, select Create installation media for another PC, and then select Next.
  5. Select the language, edition, and architecture (64-bit or 32-bit) for Windows 10. 
  6. Select which media you want to use:
    • USB flash drive. Attach a blank USB flash drive with at least 8GB of space. Any content on the flash drive will be deleted.
    • ISO file. Save an ISO file to your PC, which you can use to create a DVD. After the file is downloaded, you can go to location where the file is saved, or select Open DVD burner, and follow the instructions to burn the file to a DVD. For more info about using an ISO file, see Additional methods for using the ISO file to install Windows 10 section below.
  7. After the installation media is created, follow the steps below to use it.
  8. After completing the steps to install Windows 10, please check that you have all the necessary device drivers installed. To check for updates now, select the Start button, and then go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update, and select Check for updates. You may also wish to visit your device manufacturer’s support site for any additional drivers that may be needed.

Step 2. Fix your "Windows XP keeps restarting" issue

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.
