    What you mean by restarting?
    Comp shuts off then comes on, or it literally restarts (says windows is shutting down, then starts up)?

    Turn off the automatic restart feature of Windows.

    Right click 'My Computer'>Properties>Advanced>Startup and Recovery>Settings>Remove the checkmark from [ ] Automatically restart and then press OK and OK again.


    Edit: Is this still Windows ME?

    snob


    Couldn't this be because of overheating?
    I had it too one time, that when I wanted to shut down my pc it kept rebooting over and over again.
    Didn't even get to the login screen and the only way to stop it was cutting the power.
    Twas all back to normal the day after.

    hmm...asspie

    Sorry, but these guys are right Johnq86. ME is a complete pig of an OS. Best thing for you would be to upgrade. Hell, even a downgrade to Win98SE would be better than keeping ME imho.

    If your system specs aren't high enough to run XP, I'd follow peat moss's advice. Win 2000 is great on low end systems and it's easy to find and errrr ..."register".

    If it's not an OS prob, the cause of random restarts can be very difficult to pinpoint because they're the symptom of a wide variety of PC issues. It could be anything from a dodgy graphics or sound driver, right the way up to a faulty hardware component (dying video card, motherboard, bad RAM or even something as simple as a CMOS battery losing its charge).

    If you ever find how to disable ME's auto reboot, you'll get a stop code from the BSOD (blue screen of death) next time whatever's causing your problem happens.
    Make absolutely sure you write down the stop error code and the name of the file that threw the error, then post it here. We'll continue from there.

    One other thing: Are the reboots completely random, or do they occur when you do something specific or use a particular program?

    That's about all the help you can hope for at this stage.
