For some unknown reason my Laptop keeps restarting itself upon bootup.
When you turn it on, the bios loads, goes past it and then the windows background comes up with the moving loading bar. After 5 seconds of this my laptop restarts itself. It actually never reaches the windows user login window.
Since it's been restarting itself, the Windows DOS option screen comes up.
":ie. Last known good configuration, start windows normally, safe mode etc,
However if you select any of these options, windows just restarts itself on the loading screen.
The laptop is running XP (pretty sure its a SP3) and is an Asus X52S.
Can anyone suggest a fix for this? Or is it possible to retain all my files without losing them, with a fresh install of windows?
Appreciate some help! thanks guys
