Help. We just recently went to a cable modem. We have two computers and installed a router. Everything was working fine. Last night I went to start up the computer, it would act like it was booting up and then you would see the windows logo and it would go black and restart. It just keeps doing this. Any suggestions????

Stop overclocking???

It might be some hardware error while moving the pc...

OR when you installed driers for the routers. Maybe you didn't check the compatibility of those drivers. Unix drivers and MS drivers difference. I never had that exact conflict yet, I hope these questions brightened you and maybe other geeks will help you. I hope the best for you.

Hello and welcome to Geeks to Go! :tazz: I'm kool808.

Can you go into safe mode? ( just before you boot up, with the black screen where numbers from memories, etc. appears, continuously tap the F8 key until you arrived to an option screen, choose safe mode)

Did you mean that the two computers did not work, or just the other one? Lets try troubleshooting first the one that don't boots up properly. Unhook them first from the router then examine one by one.

you have windows XP? when it boots up choose restore windows instead of normally choosing windows XP home edition and then choose a option it will be able to get in the computer. its either a hardware or software change that makes it. Anything uve recently installed yourself may be causeing the problem. Tell me anything uve recently installed within the last week?

Hi and Welcome,

A few things we need to address so we can trouble shoot this problem. ;)

1. Can you boot into Safe Mode? (Keep tapping F8 on boot up then select boot to safe mode with networking) More info: http://www.computerh...s/chsafe.htm#02

2. Have you changed any hardware recently?

3. Have you tried using the feature "Last known good configuration" which can also be found by tapping F8 on bootup, you can use your arrow keys to select it, then hit enter.

If you can get to Safe Mode, right click My Computer, choose Manage, then Event Viewer, the click System. Do you see any errors listed from the timeframe when you tried to bootup? If so, right click and choose properties, and then copy the contents of it, and paste it here.

Then after you try those things, post back, and let us know how it went, we will go from there if need be. ;)

Good luck! :tazz:
