Computer Tech who works out of my home.
I also provide on-site services, pick-up/delivery, and discounted services to the elderly and handicapped.
Been tinkering with PCs since Win 3.0 and have a small collection of working PCs and Laptops - 95(2), 98(3), ME(1), XP(2), Vista(1), 7(1)
Would love to get a hold of a working 3.0 or 3.1 for my collection.
I've also dabbled a little with *NIX systems, but I'm far from knowing all the in's and out's of them.
Tried the MAC OS, didn't much like it, so I don't do much with them other than hardware repairs/upgrades.
Don't claim to be a "Know It All" - There's always something more to be learned !
Rispondi a "PC Keeps rebooting OS Windows 2000"Although an old question (I'm new here) I had a problem like this come into our shop about 6 months ago. It was not a malware/virus etc problem. Wasn't a PSU issue either. And the motherboard tested fine using a P.O.S.T. card and booting from an offline OS. Add to that it would only go through repeated reboot after the unit had been running a while (10-20 minutes). Then the nightmare would occur. Letting it sit a few hours it would start up fine and stay running for a while. (see above) Turned out (after much head scratching) it was the power button on the front of the unit. The contacts were wore out. Once the unit warmed up it would cause the contacts to separate enough to cut power. Then in a matter of seconds they would cool enough to power back on. A few second later the boot/reboot fiasco would start all over again. What I learned in the process was never overlook the most simple of things while assuming it may be something complex. Replaced the switch (cost me $.49) and the customer was more than...
