Anyways, something totally weird happened to my poor pc. I recently noticed that whenever i tried installing any new program, my computer would just restart on me. As soon as the setup of any program begins installing the computer just reboots. Any of u guy/girls know a possible cause/solution?! Plz help, i would much appreciate it!

I wish I knew more about troubleshooting computers, but this would most likely help:

- Restart your computer in safe mode with the command prompt
- Type in chkdsk
- When done, type in scndsk

That should fix any of your computers problems. Restart and give it a go.

I would give you the most likely solution taras.t.t, but as you have been so rude to the previous poster I cant see it happening anytime soon by me or anyone else?

If our solutions do not work we will just get abused, so why would we bother?

I beg to differ with your assessment of rudeness. The assistance offered by Leiki was logical and a practical possible solution, even though it didn't actually solve the problem, and it was suggested in good faith.

Troubleshooting is often a process of elimination. Things must be tried and ruled out as possible causes.

I think a more sincere apology is in order.

Please read the forum rules before posting again.

Rather than beating a dead horse, I'll make a suggestion, if it wastes anymore of your time, I'll apologize now ;)


If you are running these setup programs from your cdrom, my thought would be a poor connection to the drive itself, either power or the IDE cable, or an underpowered power supply.

I've been waiting to use that :D Gotta love it :D :D
