What then are the effects of having the computer to not auto restart when there's a system failure? Wouldn't having a system failure and continue entering all the way to the desktop be more hazzardous?

At the event of system failure you get a BSOD. If auto restart is enabled the system would restart itself... again encounter the failure...thenBSOD and restarts... that's why the continuous restart cycle.

when auto restart is disabled then at the event of a failure you get the BSOD and you could do a manual restart or shutdown.

I am not a expert... this has worked for me in troubleshooting the system later on.. i dunno if dsenette has missed that point for a reason.. so "if u have any doubts dont do anything" until you are convinced...

cheers

I had my system administrator to come check it out.

Turns out that my graphic card's fan wasn't spinning. It burned out. Thanks for helping. You can close this thread. (:

Regards,
Jay
