    Apologies for the vagueness of question but when i switch my pc on it gets as far as the windows screen and then switches itself off, a screen then appears to ask if i want to start windows normally or last good configuration etc. It does this continuously and every time the windows screen appears it restarts. Just wondered if anybody had encountered this problem or could give any advice on eliminating possible causes. Thanks in advance.

    Didn't you update some drivers or install some programs? Didn't you try to boot Windows is safe mode? Try to find out why your PC has that strange behavior. Anyway I need more info about your problem to say something definite.

    The fact that it reaches the windows screen and then turns off suggests to me that it's a problem with either drivers you have installed or even software. Try and run your machine in safe mode as it will disable these - if your computer successfully loads up then you have found the solutions to your problem.
