Win7 Restarts On Startup Periodically

Thought it was the motherboard at first, but still sporadically does a restart within a minute or two of starting up, especially if i try to go into firefox or aim within that time frame.

The screen goes black, it says "no signal" then resets.

I check the minidump with windows debug and it comes back as the potential problem being "hardware", so i'm currently getting the replace motherboard checked at asus to see if it was truely a motherboard problem.

I asked a repairman at a local computer store and he suggested to reinstall windows from scratch, and when i mentioned that i upgraded from xp to 7 he said "even microsoft suggests to never upgrade, even from vista". That would not explain the hardware failure though.

Absolutely nothing else goes wrong if it gets past that that 2 minute mark, and the problem seems to be random: sometimes taking 2 days between restarts on startup, all the way to almost a month.

Did memory diagnostic and the memory is fine, hard drive is running fine, i updated the drivers twice on the video card.

This problem seemed to have been prevalent since i upgraded to windows 7, and i fixed up the registry with ccleaner recently.

Laptop Periodically Gets Stuck At Welcome Screen

I have a brand new toshiba satellite laptop and it has windows 7 on it for it's operating system. I've done all of the critical and suggested updates from windows update successfully. Periodically i've noticed that when i power my laptop on, it goes through the normal boot-up cycle and then gets to the welcome splash screen prior to loading the desktop, and then never goes to the desktop.

It just stays stuck at the screen that says "welcome". If i power off the laptop and then start it back up, it will give me the option of starting in "safe mode" or "normally". If i choose normally, sometimes it will startup and work perfectly. Sometimes it may take a try or two (still getting stuck at the welcome screen). Any idea as to what is causing this?  This laptop is just slightly  more than two weeks old.

Pc Restarts Randomly

Okay so i have a relatively new velocity micro gaming computer that is about 3 weeks old and i have recently been experiencing one big problem. My computer just randomly restarts for no apparent reason (usually when i leave it alone for like half an hour to watch tv or something) and when it starts back up it gives an error message like windows did not shut down properly and it gives me the option to enter safe mode. I am currently running the paid version of norton internet security and i have already scanned my computer for viruses (full scan not quick scan).

In addition i have updated windows with all the recommended settings and updated my nvidia gt 220 video card driver from their website. I have performed all sorts of scans but i don't see any real problem that could be causing it. I am pretty sure it is not power-related because i'm using a good outlet with a surge panel. I also went into my system settings and unchecked the thing that says restart on system failure, but the problem still persists.

Update Restarts Computer

Each night windows update restarts my computer and updates my driver software for wireless. I have to roll back the driver to get the wireless to work. Not sure why this is happening or what the root cause is, but each night the driver is updated by windows update and the wireless radio won't work. I then go and roll back the driver to the previous version and it works perfectly. I have 64 bit windows 7 hp laptop with an atheros ar9285 802. 11 b/g wifi adapter. If i click update driver in the device manager the same thing occurs.

Computer Freezes And Restarts

I have bought a new computer in late december 2009 and from the beginning i've been having two problems, the computer randomly restarts and more seldom but still a problem, the computer freezes. These events can happen with a frequency less than one time each day and sometimes as often as three times a day. The computer can be on reasonable load or hardly any load at all when it happens.

My computer parts looks like the following and i've got windows on one of my two ssds:

Western digital caviar black wd2001fass 64mb 2tb
Lg bh08ls20
Corsair dominator gt ddr3 pc12800/1600mhz cl8 4x2gb
Gainward geforce gtx 275 896mb physx pci-express 2. 0, 2xdvi
Gigabyte geforce 210 oc hdmi 512mb
Antec p183
Asus p7p55d-e premium
Antec cp-850 850w
Microsoft windows 7 ultimate eng
Intel core i7 860
Intel x25-m g2 160gb
Logitech wave keyboard (sv)
Lg w3000h

The first time i've received a message when windows was shutting down was just a while ago, and it said something about the memory. I have run memtest86 which showed no problems earlier. I can't open the mini-dump file but got hte following message this one time (have not had any messages like these before and the event viewer hasn't given me any useful information).

Pc Crashes And Automatically Restarts

Original title: pc has become massively unstable when i first installed windows 7 my dell desktop was reinvigorated and ran like a fresh young athlete it woke fast and went back to sleep as quickly.

However this is but a distant memory as my once lithe machine is now nothing more than a grumpy unpredictable demon.

My problems are not measured in days or hours my problems can best be grouped in minutes.

1. The machine will simply re-start sometimes i get a warning more often i do not with absolutely no explanation.

2. Firefox 3. 6 crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

3. Chrome crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

4. Internet explorer crashes normally within minutes of loading; once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

5. Windows desktop manager is either corrupt or just plain angry as it crashes without warning or seeming reason.

Anyone with any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better still a solution will be listened to with my full attention! The sooner the better please as one more week of this and i am going back to xp pro!

Pc Restarts Each Time I Try To Shut Down

I've looked through the forums to see if i could find a solution to this issue, but the most i've been able to find is that there might be an incompatible driver somewhere on my system that's causing this to occur. When i click on "shut down", the computer does shut down, but then it turns back on after a few seconds. I had a clean install of windows 7 ultimate (64-bit)done on the computer to wipe everything off of it and start from scratch, and this still occurs. My computer is an mpc clientpro 424. I've tried disabling automatic restart, and the issue still occurs. Can anyone help?

Automatic Updates Restarts

I have windows 7 with automatic updates on. What really frustrating to me is that whenever i am working on my computer, the windows update decides to restart my computer, terminating all applications without warning or notification to my knowledge. Due to this, my documents in word were closed down without saving and everything i had on the desktop were terminated. It was a force restart and the computer did that automatically without my knowledge. It is very frustrating and i think that whoever designed it this way is not intelligent. This type of design in the system is flawed and should be fixed immediately.

I should have complete control over my computer, not windows having control over me. I should be able to control or postpone the restart, but the computer did not ask me that at all, it just restarted without warning. I am furious by this and would like to know if there is a solution. I switched the settings, now, to "download updates but only i select which to install". Even with the automatic installation of updates settings on, the computer should ask me if i would like to restart now or later, it should not automatically restart. Thank you for your time.

Laptop Restarts After Installing Updates Without Prompting

I just purchased a new laptop with windows 7. It has several times restarted after installing updates without prompting me first so i lose all my work. Vista used to warn me and let me postpone restarting my computer. Is something similar possible in windows 7? Thanks for any suggestions

Win 7 Freezes And Restarts When Transferring Files Through Usb

I have been having this problem since the day i got windows 7 and it is really starting to annoy me.
Any time i transfer files through any usb port the computer freezes, a buzzing noise comes from the speakers, the monitor turns off and the computer restarts. This happens when putting films on my hard drive, songs on my phone and syncing my mp3 player so that i actually can't do any of them.

I have uploaded the dump files here:

While using different (manufacturers) usb flash drives on this computer from time to time my computer
Restarts itself while "safe remove" is being performed. Also, note that the same thing happens (again, sometime!) When i physically unplug the usb drive. Same usbs on different xp machines. No problems! Where do i need to look for a solution to this. I've noticed other people having the same problem as well (googled it).

Computer Gets To "starting Windows" And Then Restarts Constantly

I just finished my first computer build. It was working fine, so i decided to take my graphics card and install it since everything else seemed good. I install it and the most recent drivers from ati. When i reboot, it gets to "starting windows" and then restarts. Safe mode still works. In my bios it says the gpu voltage is 0. 000, however the fan on the card is spinning. I've tried everything i could find on the web to no avail. Does anyone know what this mixture of symptoms could be caused by?

Win 7 Startup

I'm running a dell e521 which started life with vista. I upgraded months ago to windows 7. The upgrade went quite smooth. This past week i was performing a system restore to a previous date when during the process the computer rebooted which is normal. I got the dell logo, then the windows 7 start-up screen with the four little revolving lights. Then the computer progressed to the black screen with the cursor in the center and froze at that screen. I have been unable to get past this screen since. I tried rebooting with the windows 7 repair disc but with no success.

I have since bought and installed a new hard-drive and was able to extract most but not all of my files from my external hard-drive. I would like to know if there is a solution to fixing my old drive so that i can retrieve all of my data and perhaps use it as a second drive in my computer. Note; when this problem hard-drive is connected i can't get past this black screen so i cannot access my computer to find a fix.

Unmute On Startup

I purchased my laptop with vista on it, with an upgrade to 7 home premium when it was released. I've since installed, but now the system automatically turns the sound on at startup. It never had a problem with vista, and i didn't mind that the very first time i booted into 7

This is particularly annoying when i'm in class and someone sends me a message and the whole class think's i'm talking away. I've had more dirty looks from instructors in the past few months than i can remember.

I know i can go through and disable all the sounds, and switch between sound schemes, but i would rather not bother going through that path 2-3 times a day. How do i get my sound settings to stay where i put them?

No Startup Folder

Recently, i put a program in the startup folder in

C:usersadminappdataroamingmicrosoftwindowsstart menuprogramsstartup

I later decided that i didn't want the program to startup every time i log on, but instead of deleting the program i accidentally deleted the startup folder instead. The folder is no longer in the recycling bin. Does anyone have any idea of how to replace my startup folder because i would really like to put some programs in there.

I've tried using task scheduler, but didn't find it to be very effective. What i really need is a new startup folder.

Freezes On Startup

I have a computer that is one day old and will not start up (windows 7 home premium 64 bit). It will freeze at "windows starting. " It will freeze under safe mode at the classpnp.sys file. I have attempted to boot from a recovery dvd and it will not not not boot from it and freeze, and the bios settings are set to boot from the optical drive 1st. It will freeze when i try to enter the repair console.

I am out of ideas as to what to do, and i can find no answers online.

The comlete story is as follows: i was installing various programs fine (office, symantec, turbotax 04-09, etc). After installing adobe photoshop, the os "freaked out. "  I have no other way to describe it. Various components of the screen starting flickering (not the entire screen, but certain parts of programs). The touchpad became unresponsive, jerky, and seemed to click on its own. The computer began a shutdown sequence - because updates had queued, those began installing once the os logged off. Upon power on, i made it to the welcome screen. Each time, the touchpad was unresponsive, and the keyboard seemed to have its own inputs, because it would freeze and lock me out of the system.

After a few cold shutdowns, the touchpad and keyboard stopped acting weird (i know this sounds crazy, but i swear its true), and i was able to log in. I created the recovery dvds using the vaio console, uninstalled photoshop, and did a system restore to before the photoshop installation. The computer shut down, but has never been able to completely boot into the windows welcome screen.

Startup Faliure

On june 23, 2010, my computer received an auto-update from microsoft. I believe that that my computer restarted once after the update, but since then, it fails to start up at all. The computer does not usually get as far as providing me with the repair screen options, but occasionally does. Those efforts were unsuccessful. I have even tried making the repair using the os software disc. However, that was not successful. Usually, i end up with a completely black screen. Dditionally, i tried to restore the computer to three prior periods, but each attempt has failed. I received the following information after the failed repair efforts:

Problem event name: startup repair offline problem signature 01: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 02: 6. 1. 7600. 16385 problem signature 03: unknown problem signature 04: 21201010 problem signature 05: auto failure problem signature 06: 4 problem signature 07: bad patch os version: 6. 1. 7600. 2. 0. 0. 256. 1 local id: 1033

I'm guessing that i got dinged in the update that was downloaded. Regardless, i just want to get my computer back up and working. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Yes, i have disconnected all of the external devices and still have made no progress with this problem.

How To Get A Program Run On Startup?

Win 7 home premium i'd like to get a temperature utility program such as realtemp or core temp running on startup.core temp has a setting to have it run on startup, but it doesn't. (Neither of these are installed programs, but standalone .exe files that i run with a shortcut. )I've tried placing a short cut for either program into the startup folder but still have to start either one up manually. If i run system configuration, with either shortcut in the startup folder, it shows it being set for running on startup, but it doesn't run.

Taskbar Freeze At Startup

I had tried several times now, but the same happend. When i upgraded first time from xp to win 7 everything went ok until a few days later. Then started the taskbar to freeze, i could not click any items in the taskbar etc. Until i start the task manager by pressing #ctrl-alt-del" when i had dne that the task bar can be used again !I had tried to run 5-6 different virus scanners, i have avg installed, nothing from any of them, i thought in the beginning it could be a problem with the csrss.exe file as in the task-manger can i not see the properties, it not come up at all, also it not show who user ise the csrss.exe, my notebook does that !

I had re-installed the win 7 2 times again, and now it seems like the taskbar freeze at sratup, so when had had started the task-manager 1 time it works all ok ! That is quite strange !Any have a brilliant idea about what is wrong ! My computer is an acer stationary, 2 gb ram. Intel core duo e4500 2. 2 ghz. Windows / 32 bit.

Taskbar Freezing After Startup

When windows starts the taskbar is frozen, and i cannot click on anything. All icons on the desktop are not affected and can be clicked. When i click ctrl+alt+del, then cancel it, it goes back to normal and works fine.

I was on windows vista when this was happening. Once a installed windows 7, with an otherwise empty computer, it is still happening. As there is nothing else on my pc now, i presume it is microsoft related, or hardware.

I have tested the memory and its fine. I have checked the temperatures and there fine. The bios is upto date. There are no virus's or malware present.

I have now ran out of ideas, and for the life of me cannot work it out

I have checked on google, and used many tech forums to no avail?

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated?

Startup Programs Not Starting

Have just moved a few pc's at home to windows 7 (one ultimate and the others home premium) and am having problems with startup programs not starting. The programs are all in msconfig as startup items but when i log in they don't start. All of the users are administrators but the only way to get them to start is via the start menu. When i do start them it comes up with the warning about do you want the following program make changes to your computer. Is there anyway to make these programs run at startup?
