Therefore, you may want to uninstall Windows XP SP3 as a troubleshooting step. This article describes how to remove Windows XP SP3 from your computer.
Wondering now, if I can get hold of a copy of Windows XP, if re installing it would fix the HP?

Important Notes! XP SP3 cripples some PCs with endless reboots - (HP/Compaq with an AMD (non INTEL) processor systems)
• Jesper's Blog: Does your AMD-based computer boot after installing XP SP3?
NOTE: The May 14th update to the above link includes a small tool: removeIntelPPMonAMD.vbs written by Microsoft MVP Jesper Johansson that will detect the IntelPPM problem and mitigate it before installing the service pack.
• HP has posted a work around with instructions to boot into Safe Mode and disable the Intel Power Management. See HP Pavilion and Compaq Presario Desktop PCs - Computer Restarts after Displaying Stop Error 0x0000007E (After Updating with SP3)
• HP also released a patch for AMD based systems: Microsoft Windows XP SP3 Upgrade Utility for systems with AMD processors.
