It is more likely with the age, you would experience an issue such as this. If this constantly reboots and fails to POST, (before windows) sounds like a hardware issue. (maybe you proc overheated, something like that). If it is getting to windows boot screen, then restarts, your windows is bluescreening and the startup and recovery option is to automatically restart on those types of errors.
So let us know, if it only stays on for like 4-6 seconds before it reboots, that would be failing to post and is most likely a hardware issue.
Let us know!
I need some info & I hope you all can guide me in the right direction.
I have a ThinkCentre PC MT-M running XP Pro w/SP2. It stays on constantly. I've never had an issue of any kind with it. No new software or devices have been installed recently & no changes have been made to its power saving settings in any way.
I came down yesterday & noticed it making a boot noise & then, in about 2 seconds would cycle off. I took off the side cover & noticed the fans would kick on, I could hear my screen get signal & then down it would go. This repeats continuously. It has a LiteOn PS.
Any help would be appreciated.
