Get to know more resolving the various issues that may result in Windows not restarting.
Windows XP is one of the most common operating systems now-a-days. This is simple and the user could use this simply. But the system might show some types of errors while you restart the system. The reason for this restart issue will be different. But you need to fix them correctly to resolve the issue. The main reason for this refusing during start up is the registry errors. The user needs to remove the details related to each of the application in the system after un-installation. If the registry contains details of any of such programs, then the registry will be corrupted. This is one of the reasons for the restart issue in Windows XP. The next reason is the hardware issues. If any of the hardware in the system gets troubled, then also the system will refuse to restart.
Following are the resolving methods for the restart issue in Windows XP:
- Fix the driver
- Trouble shoots the hardware
- Registry corruptions
Drivers are software programs used to provide the working details about devices. Without any proper device, the Operating System could not recognize any of the devices in the system and thus the device could not work. The driver failure also might affect the system start up process. The startup process includes the loading of drivers and the services. So the incompatibility or corruption in the drivers will prevent the start up process. If the drivers are the reason for the start up issue, then you could solve it by upgrading the driver or the reinstallation of driver.
Trouble shoots the hardware
If your system beeps when you restart it but does not display anything on your monitor, then that might be due to the damaged hardware in the system. Then first you need to check the monitor in the system. If the monitor has any problems, then also you could see only the black screen. Sometimes your system won't restart because your computer is not compatible with a hardware accessory. If you have just added a new hardware accessory, turn your computer off, remove the accessory, and restart your system.
Windows saves all the changes in the system to some particular location and this location is known as registry. The registry files might be corrupted if it contains duplicate data. This duplication will results some types of startup issues. To fix this issue, you could use any of the registry cleaners. By removing the unnecessary files, the registry cleaners will help you to fix the registry corruptions and thus the start up issue.
