    hey my teacher/coach's school computer (dell optiplex gx150) is stuck in a restart loop. When it boots up it will make it to the windows os load screen and then restart. i already tried all the settings in the F5 menu and none of them worked it just restarts again.

    p.s. I also see a blue screen flash on and off the screen b4 it shuts itself down and starts again.

    i need some major help on how to diagnose and fix the problem.

    ya if its any software its a currupted windows file.....pop in a disk and type this in the consol

    chkdsk /r

    but other than that sounds hardware...pull out a stick of ram and see what happens. try clearing the cmos to.
