PC Performs Loop Restart Error

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

My computer restarts itself whenever I try to open it. It does not load the Windows operating system. Instead, it displays an error message saying that there must have been recent changes in my hardware or software, but as far as I know, I haven't done anything to it.

I have tried running the system in Safe Mode, but this does not solve the problem. What could be the problem, and how am I supposed to fix this? I'm guessing that this must be a BIOS problem. These are the specifications of my computer:

Operating system: Windows XP

System type: 32-bit

Processor: Intel Core i3 M 380 @2.53GHz

Installed memory (RAM): 2GB

Attached is a sample image that I've found in the Internet. This is the exactly the same message displayed by my computer.


We apologize for the inconvenieice, but Windows did not start successfully. A hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automaticall shut down to protect your files and folders choose last Known
Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked,

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren’t sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Nornally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Connand Pronpt

Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)

Start Windows Normally

  • There are a huge number of possibilities why this error is coming. Let's try doing few steps in order to shortlist the problem.
  • First try to remove your system RAM and use another spare RAM to see if it is giving error. If you don't have the spare RAM, move to next step.
  • Try installing new windows and see if it helps. Sometimes the boot order is misplaced in the hard disk and your PC can't find it in order to go to windows screen.
  • Try changing your hard drive and install windows in it. If you don't have spare hard disk, move to next step.
  • If you have an external graphics card then remove it and use the built in graphics display port and see if it solves.

BIOS problem refers to the problem of motherboard. Since you are nontechnical person, I would not suggest you to mess up with it. Better go to any hardware vendor and ask for its help.

Hey Animonkey,

I guess your hard disk is not working properly which is not allowing bootup of the windows properly. Just check whether the red  light indicated on the CPU is blinking or not. Well if it is not then it is the hard disk which is not working properly. If your hard disk is in warranty then you can get it replaced. But if hard disk is working properly then you have to check whether RAM is connected properly or not.

All you just need to do is open up your cabinet and remove the RAM and just fix it again properly. Then your windows must be able to load properly without any problem. The problem which you indicated can have these two issues only. So just try to do as I told you and you will definitely recover with your problem. Hope this would help.

Thank you.
