Hello, I recently solved a “restart shortly after XP boot” problem
I pressed F8 while booting, went in “Safe Mode” . In “run” type “eventvwr.msc” (without quotes), then Enter.
in Event Viewer go to System and look for a red button with an X cross on it. This is a detail of a serious error,and make sure the hour is when the computer crashed/restarted .
Open this error log and please indicate its content. Or, just google about that specific error.
In my case was a processor “intelppm failed to load” error. I had to disable ,in registry, the start of this service “intelppm” . After this my computer works normally, doesn’t restart itself.
The [B]services[/B] in registry are normaly in [I]HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services[/I] find the faulty one ,and modify its Start Dword value with 4 to disable (3 to enable)
Good luck ! PcTechPetru:iagree:
