It it sent to not restart automatically, and it continously does.. I have dont this setting, and because its not BSOD i have no dump files, also have it set to no restart upon power failure in my Bios Settings, The monitor didnt even have a chance to start as the boot cycle was so short, is the CMOS battery the cause of this crashing?

I think with the CMOS battery so low, less than 50% your board may be losing/lost all of it's settings. A new one if quite cheap and would be worth a try. You will need to reset your BIOS to default setting after replacing it and test.

Does a CMOS battery create constant crashing upon startup?
Is it very important for me to replace this? How do I fix my computer?

I find that, when I boot up my computer, sometimes it can stay on the main desktop, as soon as I run software with a bit of memory and CPU usage, it'll crash, and instantly become a boot cycle like the video has shown. But sometimes it'll load desktop and crash without me opening any software

inside Bios settings > Power > Reboot after power failure: Disable .
Computer>Properties>Advanced System Settings>Start up and recover>System Failure
Ticked box Write an event to system log
Unticked box Automatically Restart,
Kernal Dump memory..
Its not a BSOD.
Also my times on the system are completely fine and have not been affected so im not sure a CMOS is the posibility of constant crashing upon my computer.

Cant be SSD as it got replaced just recently, and same problem are caused.

Are the motherboard drivers up-to-date? What date is your BIOS?

Correct me if i'm wrong

Based on the video you have uploaded... these reboots are happening before even you see the bios .. right ??

If that is the case... then you have a hardware problem... Two possibility

1. Check your PSU, suggested by Britton30. try to borrow a PSU from your friends.. and check to see if it resolves the problem... Most probably a case of bad capacitors.. inside them

2. Check your motherboard for Bad capacitors ... look for signs for bulged capacitors... if dont know what it looks like ... look here for more visuals..

I'm leaning more towards a faulty motherboad, but thats just me.... post some snapshots or video still .. though we may or maynot be able to make it out with these... it might help

The other things you could also do is to strip the computer to bare minimum....like you could take the motherboard out of the cabinet and place them on your desk..... connect only the main HDD(the one windows is installed in), RAM, keyboard and mouse as well as the monitor to the motherboard display port...... remove the graphics card, dvd drive and other accessories (yes that goes to your 7 cooling fans as well!!)

Start your computer now and see if it still reboots...

Let me know...

Has anyone else figured out a workaround to this issue or is uninstalling this the only option? I have had 50 machines over the last day having this problem. Any easy way to uninstall every update? I'm not running WSUS just yet. So manually uninstalling is in my future :/
