    Was it working OK? Have you installed anything on it?

    Give us a little more info. Did this just start happening? Does it do it every time?
     
  4. I was working on his computer. It was working fine, but what happeneds is when it shuts off, you see for a very quick split second, you get that error blue screen, and then it shuts off and restarts everytime. This happened after putting on some updates from Microsoft's update site. I cannot do a restore on it, so we are stuck.. the only problem with the whole thing is that when you hit the "shut down" key", it reboots.

    Cheers

    Try right clicking my computer\properties\advanced\startup & recovery\settings. Untick automatic restart. See if that will give you an error you can read.
     
  7. Ok.. it gave me this error " IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
    Now what do I do?

    Thanks Hipster :)

    Cheers

    You can find some possible reasons and solutions here
     
  9. Ok... Well here is what I have sort of figured out.. When I went to update on Microsoft's website, after I downloded sp1 it gave me this error. It could be a bad driver, or something else.. Microsoft's own website doesn't really tell me a solution.. I'm hoping one of you expert know, because I sure don't. Otherwisee the computer act's fine, but just restarts, and right before it does, it gives me that "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" screen for a split second. Is there an easy fix?

    Thanks again everybody :)

    Cheers

    Do a google search for IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. There are heaps of things to go through. Have fun. :D
     
  11. I tried.. nothing there works :-(
