Does it reboot when you are running the program or at random times when you are not? It sounds to me like a hardware problem - CPU running too high use and too long a time. Is that a laptop and if so, is it getting enough cooling? Bad memory and or a bad hard drive are also possible causes. All video editing is very CPU intensive.

 

You might want to also update and run your anti-virus by booting to the safe mode. Did you have the anti-virus turned off when you installed the program? How much free space on that hard drive?

 

Is the computer running slow also? Make sure you turn off the Media Manager cataloging of the files on your hard drive.

Also try disabling "Automatically Restart" option to identify if there is a driver conflict or is it related to any hardware issue.

 

For XP -

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System

2. Go to Advanced

3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...

4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

 

For Vista -

1. Go to Start -> Control Panel -> System (Under Classic View)

2. Go to Advanced System Settings

3. Under the Startup and Recovery section, click Settings...

4. Under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

Thanks for the quick replies...however I guess I didn't make my self clear. I suffering from Windows XP reboot loop...

after installiing EMC 10. It goes as far as Windows' logo and reboots again and again and again... Any suggestions?

I can't afford to reformat HD just too many important files.

 

Thanks again... :blink:

Are you getting a error message or are you getting the NTLDR is missing error? If the later, read this.

 

When you do get it started, make sure you buy an external hard drive and back up those important files or burn them to discs.

Making the change suggested by firenhancer has nothing to do with "reformat HD". It is simply changing a setting.

 

And if you have "too many important files" to consider a reformat, you should be saving them, as sknis says, either to an External Hard Drive, or to CD or DVD, or to at least a Flash Drive.

 

If that disc fails - and I've had a failed Hard Drive - the only possibility of recovering what was on it is if they are saved somewhere else ... or, for a huge price, there are some places which will take apart the Hard Drive and see if they can get anything off the discs inside it - they had a lot of business recovering data after Hurricane Katrina.
