Windows 7 Computer keeps restarting! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everybody!

    I have a Windows 7 HP Pavilion Slimline, with a Intel Pentium G630 Processor. My computer will randomly restart.

    I have checked for malicious software and viruses, done a rollback to before (I thought) the problem started, checked computer temperatures, etc. It only showed a Bluescreen once, and I forgot to write down what it said. Oops. Additionally, occasionally when I log into my account, it just shows the cursor and a black screen, I just Ctrl Alt Delete out of it. Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    I recommend you to run a memory test on your computer

    Please, search for memtest86+

    You download an ISO file, burn a CD and boot from there.

    It'll run a thorough memory test, if you get any errors then you got a fried SIMM to replace!

  • Hi,

    From your post, I know that your Windows kept restarting randomly. BSOD happened one time and sometimes you couldn’t log on Windows with black screen. You have tried to scan system and restore back, but to no avail.

    Regarding current situation, this issue can be caused by corrupted system files or components, I suggest that we follow these steps to check the issue:

    Run System file checker tool and memory diagnostic tool in Safe mode:

    Start your computer in safe mode:

    System file checker (SFC) tool

    To run the Memory Diagnostics Tool manually

    If the issue still persist, let’s try Windows startup repair tool to repair your system:
