HP 550e OS-XP Home- Computer does a continous rebooting when turned on, gets to XP Screen then reboots. Cannot get past this screen. Have tried to start in safe mode using F8, gets to safe mode screen then locks up crtl delete to shut down it restarts and reboots its self continously. When it goes through it's first rebooting after intial start up first time I get no response from the keyboard or mouse after that have to do manual shutdown.

Please help if you can, will provide more computer details if needed.

Might be a faulty motherboard if you are not getting response from the mouse and keyboard and it keeps rebooting.

Wait and see what some of the other members have to say about it.

Regards,
David.

I think I'd try shorting the CMOS jumper (or achieve same effect by removing CMOS battery temporarily).

What was the last thing you can think of that you did to the computer before the problem happened?
(installed, removed progams?)

If you go into the Startup and Recovery section of the System Properties you can uncheck the Automatic Restart and when your computer starts it should stop and show you an error message. Please post the exact message back here.

Start> right click on My Computer> Properties> Startup and Recovery Settings> System Failure

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Also, this used to happen to me during overheating of the processor-it shuts itself down in case of dangerous temperatures. What are the temperatures in the BIOS before boot? Mine were 76C (and I'm guessing at around 85C it rebooted).

I want to thank everyone who has responded. It will take me a few days to do follow ups. I travel for work and CPU is at home.
