Windows 7: System reboots several times during startup only

26 Mar 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional 32-bits
System reboots several times during startup only

I have Windows 7 on Intel D945GPM MB, 3 GB RAM.
System always reboots itself several times duing startup (3-4 times, including 1-2 BSOD). Took 4-5 minutes. After 3-4 times, Windows 7 loads normally, then I can use it the whole day without any problem what-so-ever.

After I shut it down or go into hibernate, then I have to repeat this multiple reboots again each time.

I read extensively about it. If it is driver or hardware issue, I don't understand why it ends up stable after 3-4 times. I don't have any problem with any problem with devices after Windows loads up eventually. The reboots only happens during startup.

Safe mode or Windows repair does not make a difference. I tried them all. It is so strange. I just have to wait for system to reboots itself 3-4 times.

Does anyone have any experience with this?

Welcome to the Windows 7 Forums

Try the following after carrying out a thorough virus scan.

Boot your computer into "Safe Mode" by pressing F8 repeatedly during startup. If the computer doesn't crash, that suggests that there is a startup item that might be causing it crash. In that case carry out the steps below.

1. Run "msconfig".
2. Go to the "Startup" tab and click on "Disable All".
3. After several hours of rest boot your computer normally, and see if it works.
4. If it works, enable the items one by one, followed by a shut down of a few hours and then booting every time. When the computer crashes again, disable the one that you just enabled.
5. Enable the rest of the startup items.
6. Do not enable the problematic item at start-up

I hope that this helps in resolving the issue.
