FAT32 is used by Windows (or sometimes NTFS). EXT4 is used in Linux and macOS. These file systems are probably familiar to you; Windows computers use FAT32, while Linux and macOS use EXT4. Every file system does more than simply keep your information safe; it also has its own unique structure. As a result, they may be understood by a wider variety of operating systems.

When Your Computer Turns On But Does Nothing
1. If you turn on your computer and see nothing, here’s what may be wrong: There might be an issue with your power source. If this occurs, you’ll need to remove the computer’s back panel. And unplug the power and data wires from the motherboards (the large plastic board). Now disconnect the power supply’s switch from the motherboard. Reconnect the cables in the same sequence as before. Start up the PC and see whether everything is functioning properly now.
2. It’s possible that the computer won’t turn on at all. Many things can go wrong and cause this, such as RAM failure, a faulty hard drive, a malware infection, etc. First, attempt a manual restart, and if it doesn’t fix the problem, use the Windows repair tool.

When Your Computer Keeps Restarting During POST
PSU (Power Supply Unit) Testing
Most power supplies fail because internal components are broken during delivery. Which you might not realize if this is your initial time working with computers. Overloading the gadget while it was charging might cause this. Verify that you are employing the correct computer charger. Check the UPS’s battery life to be sure it can manage the load before relying on it. Never put more on an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) than the manufacturer recommends.
Failure of capacitors on the motherboard or in the RAM modules is the most prevalent cause of memory difficulties. Typically, these problems result in sluggish operation, system crashes, or even total system failure.
There may be an internal problem with some hard discs. However, not all hard drives are created equal. And some older models simply weren’t intended to operate at such high RPM and hence die under such stress.
Backplane or Motherboard
After a while, motherboards usually start malfunctioning. Externally or internally, they may develop faulty chipsets, memory problems, or data corruption.
Inadequate Visualization Hardware
It’s possible that your computer isn’t able to properly identify the graphics card. Because of a problem with its ability to do so. As a rule, however, this problem only arises at some periods and not at others.
An NIC, or Network Interface Card
If your computer is unable to detect your network adapter. It might be because something is incorrect with the computer’s network card. This can occur if the driver software was not installed properly or if the firmware upgrade was too outdated.
What Causes the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) if Windows Starts to Load and Then Restarts?
Sometimes Windows will appear to be loading normally. But then a Blue Screen of Life will appear, causing the operating system to shut down and restart (BSOD). Your computer’s central processor (CPU) may be overheating, which might be the source of the issue.
Why Does My CPU Keep Getting So Hot?
The brains of computers, the central processor unit (CPU), is where all the action happens. It relies on thousands of minute parts to execute programming and carry out its many functions. They’ve shrunk in size and sped up in performance, allowing them to manage many applications simultaneously. However, issues with overheating have arisen as a result of this higher velocity. Without adequate cooling, a processor might overheat and fail.
We advise you to keep your PC cold to avoid overheating. One method is to maintain a steady temperature in the space where your computer resides. If a fan is used, it should exhaust air from the rear of the computer. Rather than blowing directly against the case’s outside.
What are the warning signs that my computer is overheating?
Keep your PC at or below 40 degree Celsius at all times (104 F). Overheating your computer might cause irreparable damage to its internal components. You can gauge how hot your PC gets by disconnecting the power supply. Look at the base of the computer. See if it’s warm to the touch by placing your finger on the surface. Over 85 degrees Fahrenheit is considered too hot, so keep it cool.
What Occurs If Windows Starts Loading, but Then Aborts or Restarts Normally? In what way should I proceed?
Numerous people who have installed Windows 8.0 on numerous computers have reported encountering this issue. For example, if you update to Windows 8 and then try to utilize it right away, you may run into this issue. As soon as Windows begins loading files, it abruptly stops, restarts, and displays no problems. There have been reports of people having to restart their computers many times before Windows 8.0 loads.
This issue might have two origins:
1. It’s possible that the installation of Windows 8.0 will clash with any out-of-date system drivers currently stored on your hard drive. If you want your computer to run at peak performance, you need to keep the motherboard’s BIOS up to date.
2. In all probability, one of your Windows 8.0 files is damaged. To clear up the space on your hard drive and get rid of temporary files, run Disk Cleanup. Disk Cleanup must be executed before Windows Update can be used to get the most recent updates.
