Microsoft® Windows® 7 Installation Keeps Restarting
What are the common causes due to which Windows 7 installation keeps restarting?
Computer can be affected by a variety of hardware and software issues that might cause the computer to crash or stop functioning suddenly. A common type of computer crash is a Blue Screen of Death, which is a blue error screen that appears when a fatal system error occurs on a Windows, based PC. The default action that your computer would take after a blue screen crash is to automatically restart after a few seconds. You might wish to keep your computer from restarting after errors occur so that you have more time to view the error information or to prevent the same crash from occurring again as soon as the computer restarts. Microsoft Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool helps the remove specific prevalent malicious software from computers that are running Windows 7.
The following are the different ways to fix installation issues in Windows 7:
- System File Checker tool
Click Start and then click the Run and type sysdm.cpl in the run the text field and the press enter. In Windows Vista and 7, you can also type sysdm.cpl into the search box and press enter and then Click on the advanced tab and then click. Settings under Startup and Recovery and uncheck the box called "Automatically restart under System Failure", and then click "OK." Your computer will no longer restart after errors occur. If an error occurs you would have to manually turn off the computer to shut it off and get rid of the error screen.
System File Checker tool
You might also do a System File Checker scan on your computer. The SFC tool scans system files and replaces incorrect versions of the system files by using the correct versions. Click Start button and then type cmd in the Start Search box. And then Right-click cmd in the Programs list and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or the confirmation type your password or click Continue.
After shutting off automatic restarts, you can record all of the error information that displays when a crash appears and use it to troubleshoot the cause of the problem. Bad driver software is a common cause of the computer errors and the blue screens and using a fully updated antivirus program can help prevent computer errors. By default, Windows is set to automatically reboot in case of system failure. It helps on solving the problems sometimes but in case of fatal errors this normally does not help and just makes it difficult for you to read the error messages.
