in safe mode or normal if you can:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

then start the computer in normal mode instead of restarting it should give you an error write it down then post back and let us know :tazz:

Thanks, PastaBoy, but unfortunately I reinstalled before I read your message. I am now pondering whether to buy a motherboard or a new PC.

To gerryf -- I decided to get in on Dell's back-to-school sale. For $450 I was able to get a PC roughly the same as the one I have, CD/RW drive and modem, plus a combination color printer/scanner/fax and a 17" monitor (but not flat-panel), which is not bad. My monitor is really old, so this may work out well. I read up a little on how to build your own and it would be quite a learning curve for me.

Thanks again for your excellent help. I will make a donation either to you and the other helpers or to the site, whichever is appropriate.

Hi,

I'm not sure if this will work, but if you can, try and set the frequency of your RAM to it's lowest setting, my computer used to give me the blue screen of death and reboot sporadically until I set the ram from 400Mhz to 333Mhz, depending on how old or new your system might be your memory might range from 66MHz to 533Mhz, just pick the lowest value, save changes and see if that works. Oops forgot to mention that you change your RAM frequency in the bios but be very careful and don't change change any other settings, remember change your RAM frequency not the CPUs.

I hope this helps instead of hinders

Thanks, fungit, but I have looked and looked, and I don't think it's possible to change the RAM frequency on my PC. I have already bought another one, so this one is toast, but I appreciate the offer of help.
