computer was humming along fine, then just shut down. now it conitunually restarts itself (XP Professional). I hit F8 and it stops at windows boot manager screen.
only option it lists is Windows Vista as the Operating System. this computer was recently purchased and my husband did not want Vista and requested XP.
if i hit enter it does go to the welcome screen which says XP professional, then it shuts down, and starts all over again. i cannot get into safe mode, etc.
not sure what to try next.....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated - my husband runs his business off this computer so he is freaking out.
PS. Just hit the space bar while holding the tab key and came to the safe mode screen...not sure which mode to proceed in.....
Now it is making continuous clicking noises shutting on and off immediately. had to unplug everything to shut it down....slight burning smell...i assume this is NOT good.
