    So my laptop is acting up. It was working fine, I shut it down and now when I start it it goes through the XP load screen, shows the background of my desktop then restarts. I've started it in safe mode and it starts but all the programs run very slowly then i switch back to normal mode and it does the same restart.

    It seems to be software but can it be ram or something?

    Restart problems that come out of nowhere are often caused by virusses. www.avast.com, is what i use as a virusscanner. What you should try with that is a boot scheduled virusscan. along with lavasoft adaware and spybot search and destroy. If you let it search then most likely it will find a dozen or things that cause the problems.

    Nope not a virus, I thought so too but I believe it was a confilict with avg b/c everytime it would update the restart issue would occur, went back a couple of weeks on a system restore and it seems to be working.....and yes i have run a virus scan since then and nothing, no spyware either.
