I would check out a program called "HD Tune" and go to the S.M.A.R.T Tab and check "reallocated sectors and pending." If this is happening when you write to the drive; it could be the power supply in the computer and/or ram chips. Typically, reboots only happen when power drops.

Open a command prompt, go to programs accessories and click on command prompt, type in chkdsk /f/r
then press enter
it will ask you if you want to run this next to the computer starts, say yes then restart the computer. This may take a long time when it starts, but it will fix any bad sectors on the hard drive. Once this is completed hopefully your hard drive will work more proficiently.

Can't restart windows 7 on my dell d610, did a format on the hd, re-loaded the windows 7 disc, everything runs great until I shut it down then it won't restart

Recently a put windows 7 on my latitude d610 only problems I had were incompat. Drivers (wifi, sound, graphics.) all were fixed with googling those drivers with windows 7 because this hardware is not compatible with 7 but seeing as it is a restart thing,

Check the drivers u have installed try to see if any need updating or are no compat.

I have a folder that everytime I try and drag music to it tells me that the disc must be formated and it won't let me delete it either. But ever other folder works fine... The drive is almost full and...

Restart in safe mode it should delete then otherwise start taskmanager and look under processes something must be running in that folder to stop you deleting it. Try making a new folder first and copy everything you can then delete it. Its not a major problem dont even think of formatting it. Cheers and please vote

you may have to check the fuel pump function for pressure and volume when this happens as it could be a bad pump,you could have it checked when working as it could show up something but more likely should be done when it stops running.

See if you can repair the program by just reinstalling it again . Or you can save your projects in a temporary folder and then uninstall and reinstall the program. Afterwards you put your projects back.

When I restart my laptop to my HD crashes when windows starts to start, she took the laptop outside and put on another laptop to back up, but when it starts copying, the screen goes blue and restarts...

You will have to take the drive off, put it on an external hdd enclosure with a usb connection, connect it to a working computer, scan it for viruses and spyware, copy all of your data to another device (i.e. hdd, flashdisk, cd, etc). Then, reinstall the hd back on to the original computer and turn it on. If it works it you've solved your problem. If it doesn't then reformat your hdd, reinstall your operating system, programs, and data.
Time consuming? yes but it works.

Macbook cdrom stuck in copy mode

hold down power button until your machine shuts off. then power back on. you should be fine. if the cd is stuck in the drive, restart the machine and hold down the mouse button while restarting - the cd should eject itself.

Computer shut off

you have a hardware conflict or a bad power supply/MB. or a bad video card/driver. or a bad RAM chip. uninstall everything but one chip, one HDD and CDROM, and one video card. install the OS rom there... then add items until it becomes unstable. the last thing you installed is the bad boy.
