Computer Won't Boot Up - Continually Reboots

Aug 16, 2006

Suddenly, today my computer won't boot up. It gets to where it displays the Windows XP screen, then for an instant there is a screen with some printing, but it goes too fast to read because the computer shuts down and reboots. It does this continually. I can boot up in safe mode so I went to add/remove programs in control panel and found two entries that I didn't recognize. I tried to remove them but they would not remove. Their names were ANIO Service and ANIWZCS2 Service. Keep in mind I was in Safe mode and logged on to a personal account, not the administrator account. I then went to Windows Explorer and there I saw a folder with the name ANI. Within that folder there were two more folders with files in them as listed below:

Laptop Continually Reboots After BSOD

Dec 10, 2005

HP laptop with XP pro continually reboots after a BSOD It starts to load the windows logo.It will not boot to safe mode or any other mode.Last known good does not work.
Hardware and disk test OK.I believe it is most likely a corrupted windows file or registry.I have the OEM restore disks.Q1. will the restore discs overwrite the data? I suspect they will.Q2. Can I get to the restore point if i can boot the machine to DOS?Q3. What other tactic other than restoring from scratch might work?

Computer Continually Restarting

Dec 18, 2007

I did a registry edit, (I think I didn't reboot the computer before turning it off and packing it for the flight, but I'm not sure) and without ever restarting the computer, I went on a plane flight. Now I'm at my destination (on another computer atm) and when I boot my computer, the lights literally turn on for only ~3 seconds, then it reboots, it will just continually loop this once I turn on the power supply and press the power button (turning off the power supply is the only way I've found to stop it). I don't think it even sends a signal to the monitor to turn on. I have been googling it and trying to find out what it is, it seems like it might be the registry that's the issue? If this registry edit did cause my computer to go haywire (even though I kind of have a hard time seeing that considering the reboot is so fast.. but I'm sure you guys know more than me) then what would I do to fix it? Get a boot CD right for my OS? Does that entail buying a new Win XP CD? Or can I use to fix it? If I can get to Windows I can revert the registry change, no problem, if that is what's causing it.

Computer Continually Restarts - Mouse/keyboard Donot Work

Jul 30, 2007

Hello, I am new to this website, and need some serious help. I have a Gateway GT 5028 that is about a year a half old. I came home today to turn it on, and the only thing that happens is the fans both work, the cd drive lights come on, the power button light comes on, and the orange cpu light comes on. After a few seconds the cd lights flash again, and they repeat this process. The screen, keyboard, and mouse do not work. The monitor stays black the whole time. It has windows xp on it. I got it at Best buy, but it is out of warranty. It seems as if the computer continually restarts?

Disk Boot Failure: Pc Reboots During Uninstallation Process?

I was uninstalling Norton Antivirus 2005 and during the uninstallation process, the PC rebooted (without warning me) and then the computer sat at a black screen. The screen said "disk boot failure insert system disk and press enter". Can you please let me know what might be causing the problem? I haven't made any recent hardware or software changes to the computer (other than attempting to uninstall Norton Antivirus 2005).

Cannot Start Windows / Reboots To Boot Selection Screen Each Time

Dec 24, 2006

I am trying to help out a neighbor today who has computer related problems. He boots up his computer, to go to the screen where it gives him 5 choices to start his computer: start windows normally, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, last good known configuration, etc. No matter which one he chooses though, they all give him the same result. He sees the windows logo with the bars loading up XP but shortly after that he gets a Blue Screen of Death for about a second (not long enough for me to see the error), then it goes back to the Boot options I listed above. Not exactly sure where to go when I am trying to help him at the moment. Usually, I can get the BSOD error and go from there, but this time I'm stuck because I can't see the error in time. At the moment, I have limited computer specs. from him (pretty sure its a dell) but other than that, not much else.

Computer Boots Once Only Then Reboots?

Oct 31, 2006

ASUS laptop P3, 386MB RAM; XP2 - after scrubbing the drive of spyware and a virus - there was still one remaining - worm/spybot which included these 3 files: explore.exe, svshost.exe and windowsupdate.exe all of which are bogus files. I deleted these manually but did not find any registry entries (run once) that typically is associated with one of these files. Everything looked great until I rebooted because then XP starts, right after the logo screen things go black and the machine reboots forcing you to go to safe mode. You can go to safe mode once then reboot and come up into standard mode ok. Next time you reboot the reboot thing happens and you are stuck in this loop.

Computer Reboots Itself On The Old Memory

Oct 22, 2007

I recently just built this computer so its still all pretty much brand new. Im not really sure what is making it reboot but it seems like im always playing a game when it decides to do it. After somone else suggesting it was the ram i decided to check my ram with memtest86+ and during the scan my computer rebooted itself pointing that it was prolly the ram. So now i am using my old ram while the other 2 gigs is bein sent back for return and the computer rebooted itself on my old memory so now im pretty sure its not the ram. I understand that it could be numerous things such as a loose wire,drivers,crack in motherboard but it would be nice if the problem could be determined or atleast narrowed down.

Computer Randomly Reboots

Feb 25, 2004

My problem as it stands is: My computer randomly reboots when utilizing graphics intensive programs. For example: games such as EverQuest, Final Fantasy XI, Quake III and programs such as Adobe ImageReady CS. I can't seem to establish any patterns between the crashes aside from they all seem to happen in graphics intensive programs (although ImageReady CS doesn't seem to be too graphically intensive to me). For a while, after a random restart, I would get an error saying my system has recovered from a serious error. Now I don't even get that. I just hang up on the "Welcome" screen in XP and have to ctrl+alt+del.When I first had a problem, I also had a problem that seems to be pretty common on the internet - My HD kep crashing and getting write errors to $Mft. So, I took the HD back (before I read about the problem) and it happened on the new hard drive. So, I called my friend and asked to borrow his XP SP1 CD to see if it might have some better effect on the situation than mine (my other friend suggested that it might have some problems copying certain files). When I reformatted and reinstalled with my friends version of XP SP1, I seemed to have no problems at all. No $Mft. Nothing. I upraded my motherboard drivers (including IDE bus/onboard sound/AGP driver), video drivers, directx. Still no problems. Then about 2 weeks after this, I started crashing randomly. I've scanned my computer multiple times for adaware/virus' and nothing has come up, so it's not that.

I've tried reformatting a few times and the same thing ends up happening in the end.I somewhat think its a complication between my video card and my motherboard versus my version of windows XP, and this is why:The odd thing is, if I plug in my old Hard drive (which I used with my new SAPHIRE RADEON 9700 for a little while before replacing it with a new one), I have no problems whatsoever. My computer is completely stable asside from the fact that the hard drive is slow. I replaced my video card about 3 months ago when my old GeForce went out. I used it with that old hard drive for a while with no problem. Then I got a new hard drive to give my computer a new kick -- and now I have nothing but problems.

When Installing SP2 i kept getting Application errors for numerous Application stated below.

Computer Crashes / Randomly Reboots

(World of Warcraft and Counter-Strike Source) as well as during startup and during desktop use, that my computer sometimes reboots itself automatically. Like pressing the restart button, or the screen freezes (occurs when playing Counter-Strike Source) and my audio emits a very high pitched stuttering sound and no commands work, and as such the computer must be manually restarted. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would be able to give me some clues as to what is wrong.I am currently using the latest free addtion of Zone Labs 'Zone Alarm' firewall and AVG free anti-virus + Ad-Aware SE Personal Spyware removal. These programs have not found any viruses on the computer, although sometimes during a virus scan with AVG the computer will automatically reboot half-way through the virus scan procedure.

Computer Reboots At Shutdown And Hide Icons In Systray Doesn't Function

May 7, 2010

When I went to start up my computer (HP Pavilion 750n, 768 MB RAM, 1.6 GHz Pentium 4 processor) yesterday, there was no power. I took it to the local repair shop. The tech said it was the power supply again (the second one I've had in 6 months). He replaced it with a non-HP power supply. It boots up and all the programs are functioning, but when I do the START>SHUT DOWN>SHUT DOWN, it just reboots. I did some investigating and found a work around for this (right click on MY COMPUTER>PROPERTIES>ADVANCED tab>STARTUP and RECOVERY SETTINGS>unchecked AUTOMATICALLY RESTART under SYSTEM FAILURE). I'm still concerned about why the icons in the SYSTRAY can't be hidden now.

Continually Restarts During Start-up, Gets 0x00000024 BSoD

Jul 15, 2008

My desktop currently boots, but before starting XP displays a warning that the system was restarted to protect from data loss after an unexpected start or system failure. All of the options (safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, safe mode with networking, last known good configuration, and start normally) don't work, they all lead to a short start-up and then the system restarts. I turned off auto-restart on system failure to see the blue screen that would tell me the error, and the error I got was "*** STOP: 0x00000024", which from what I've researched usually has to with a corrupted ntfs.sys file but I'm not sure. I tried booting the Windows Recovery Console from the OS choice menu and that goes straight to the error, and booting the System Recovery disc lets me start up the process, but when I press "r" to run the normal fixes (that don't include wiping the drive) the process goes nowhere. It starts, but after finished the loading bar it goes to a solid baby blue screen.

I direly need my files off of the hard drive, so I'm not really looking at a full system recovery as an option, I just need something that'll buy me enough time to transfer most of the content on the hard drive (around 160 gigs) to an external hard drive.

I've also tried testing both sticks of RAM by removing one and then the other to see if one is bad, but the error still persists.

When i select one of the options, the hardrive spins up, and then my gfx card bios info and mobo splash screen come on.

Constantly Reboots Itself

Mar 15, 2006

An interesting problem. I have a box here that constantly reboots itself. Firstly I thought it may be a cmos problem, so I drained the cmos by removing the battery. Nope. Then I forced the bios to find hardware (I think it's eecd?). No problem finding hardware, but constant reboot. I thought it may be a hard drive problem so I changed the h/d. Nope, still constantly reboots. I took out the cdrom. Nope. I then low level formatted the h/d (the box worked just fine for this, using a cd with the format program, booting from the cd) tried to install a new o/s rebooting again during the install, after several tries got the o/s in the puter boots to the point of xp starting, then reboot or teases the heck out of me by actually opening xp to the welcome screen - then reboot. The box uses XP, the pwr supply is good and I am at a loss.

New System But Reboots Itself?

Oct 24, 2006

I come to you with a rather strange problem. I come to you because I have no idea where to begin diagnosing such a problem. I just ordered parts for a brand new computer, built it, and am now running it very happily. However, within the past few days (the computer was finished being built about a week ago), it's started randomly rebooting while undertaking routine tasks in Windows. There seems to be no logical software-related pattern to the reboots so I have no idea what's causing it. It happens thus: audio skips for a few seconds, I hear a click inside the computer, and then it just restarts.
As I said, there seems to be no software pattern to the reboots... The only recent hardware change is that I've put in the Firewire card (it came in later than the rest of the computer, so I ran a few days without it). I almost want to suspect the Firewire card is causing such a problem -- is that reasonable?
In addition to that, I have an external USB hard drive that's failing... it's connected via the Firewire, and one of the restarts happened when I turned off the drive. Assuming that means it's one of those two, could it be the hard drive or the Firewire from that?
