View Full Version : computer restarts



15-01-2000, 02:33 PM
when i try running a program from the cd-rom (eg;encarta 98)or an exe file from the floppy disc drive,the computer restarts itself as if the reset button was pushed.
Then it says windows was not shut down properly & goes through scandisc.When i tried installing a program from the cd-rom to the hard drive it worked fine.
computer is a 486 dx2/66 & win 95b
any clues as to what this problem may be would be appreicated -thanks
