Hi TT81,
I'm assuming you're using WinXP,if so,click start & right click my computer>properties>advanced.Click "settings" under "startup & recovery".Uncheck "automatically restart",then click ok.Thge next time a problem occurs,instead of restarting,you should see an error message,Post back with the error message exactly word for word.
Take care.

To sandy,
thanks for your reply...Yes, i'm using Win XP and i followed your instruction to close the Automatically restart button, but the samething happen again....it didn't restart normally, but rather abruptly.and jump to Disk scan before loading the Window again...

i read your pass messages about the PC reboot problem, and you were saying it might be the problem of Ram stick or the power supply. but how do i check if my powere supply is still good?? in fact, i had this rebooting problem since i upgraded my PC ( but i didn't change the casing and the power supply too), and how do i check if there is a problem with my Ram stick?

thanks for your advice !!

Hi TT81,
The only way to see if the power supply or the ram is bad is to substitute known good ones.There isn't an easy answer.If you don't have another computer around to try them,then the only other suggestion is to take it to a repair shop & have them check it.
Take care.
