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 choose the third way: get a Windows bootable CD or USB that can help you access your computer and repair your Windows problems. Here is my recommendation: Wondershare LiveBoot Boot CD/USB. You can use it to make a bootable CD or USB and fix your XP 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.
After installing and running the program, insert a blank CD or USB drive into the computer that keeps restarting. On the wizard as follow, there are bootable CD or USB making guides. Choose one for your own and click the green burning button, and then your bootable CD or USB drive is burning now.
Next, switch to the computer that keeps rebooting. Insert the burnt CD or USB drive into the computer and reboot it. When hearing the beep of system load, press F12 to get into the Boot Device Menu. Here, select "Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive" on the menu, and you'll get a window as follow. Click "Boot from LiveBoot" to access your rebooting XP system.
After a few minutes, Wondershare LiveBoot will automatically appear when you accessing the system. Go to the "Windows Recovery" and choose "Loading Crash Solution". Here you'll see that the problem you're meeting is listed in the Symptom. Read on, and you can get the solution below. Follow the methods provided and begin to fix your issue now.
When the problem fixed, take out of the LiveBoot CD/ USB drive, and restart your computer as normal. Then you'll find that you can boot your computer successfully as normal.
