Hi, I'm facing some problems with my vista in my old notebook.
It's a Pavillion, dv2500, Intel core 2 1.5ghz 4 gb, 32bit OS, W. Vista SP2. (It has ubuntu in another partition, but ubuntu is wirking pretty fine).
The computer keeps reboting after some minutes while it tries to load the system. Safe boot is working normally. I've already tried system restore during a 'safe mode boot', but this works just for the first boot, and than in the following boot it begins to reboot automatically againg.
Avast and Malwarebytes logs are clean.
Thank you for your help,
Mauro

Hi there :)

Is there any BSOD appearing before the reboot?

Good :)

Pleace go to C:\Windows\Minidump folder. There should be some *.dmp files. Please zip the last few and host in a place like dropbox, giving the link in your next post.

If having any dificulties, please let me know :)

I have done this:
"You can disable the automatic restart on system failure option in the Startup and Recovery area of the System applet in Control Panel."
And the error is IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
# STOP: 0x0000000A 0x8304f425

OK, but please provide some more data and host last few minidumps.

Did you recently (before the issues started) install some new software, hardware, or any drivers?

Hi. I think I've solved this. I have just reinstalled Avast and everything worked pretty fine again. Thank you for your attention!!!
