PC automatically restarts after installing LAN game

Asked By 230 points N/A Posted on -

This problem is indeed bothering me! It all started when I reformat the computer. On the first day, it works properly but on the second day when i turned on my computer it'll always restart and then it cannot even load the Windows Vista logo. Yes I am using Windows Vista Premium for my computer. But before that happened, i used to install a LAN game after reformatting the computer.

How does this happened? What would be the problem of the computer?

It's getting me worried i don't want my computer will be malfunction.

Post your answers.

Please thank you.

PC automatically restarts after installing LAN game


You are using Windows Vista. And I'm pretty sure that you are not experiencing problems during the course of the installation.
You mentioned that you install a LAN game after you installed the OS. This particular game may have corrupted your files.
And another possibility is the minimum system requirements for that particular game must have been too high for your computer.

My recommendation for you is to look at the box of that game and see its minimum system requirements. First thing to look is the minimum memory requirements. Compare it with your existing installed RAM. If your computer did not satisfy the requirements, then there will be problems on this game if you insist installing it. You can also opt to buy additional RAM for your system to cope up.

Hi Mhash Stefen,

This may be the reason of the restarts of your PC.

Computer virus.

Computer viruses such as the blaster virus are written to reboot your computer without warning. Usually these viruses will make the computer reboot ever 5, 10, 15 or 30 minutes after the computer has booted.

If you believe your computer may be infected with a virus or are uncertain if your computer is infected with a virus make sure your virus scanner definitions are up to date.

Heat related issue.

Many computer today are designed to turn off or automatically reboot if the computer, processor, or other device in your computer gets to hot. If you have heard any abnormal noises coming from your computer recently such as a high squealing this could indicate a fan may be failing in your computer.

First, verify the fan on the power supply is working by examining the back of the computer and seeing if the fan is moving and moving smoothly. For all other fans in the computer you will need to either open the computer and verify all fans are working.

Issue with operating system.

If after following each of the above recommendations your computer still continues to reboot it is likely that you are experiencing a Microsoft Windows operating system related issue that cannot be explained. To help make sure this is the case try the below steps.

1. Reboot the computer and enter CMOS setup as the computer is booting.
2. After you have loaded the computer in CMOS setup let the computer sit.

If the computer does not reboot while letting the computer sit in CMOS it is likely that you are in fact experiencing an issue with Microsoft Windows and it is recommend that if you have followed all of the above recommendations that you Re-install Microsoft windows.
