Here is a thread which talks about the blue screen message on disabling the bios cache. It does not talk about your continuous restart problem but does give some insights into the original blue screen message you saw.

http://www.hardwareanalysis.com/content/topic/71919/

Have you tried methods to interrupt the start up process by either trying to trigger safe mode or get into the bios setting for your motherboard?

Putting together the key points of the thread referenced above:

"This particular error would typically indicate a problem with memory mapping associated with a peripheral device."

"it's still a good idea to simplify the memory environment as much as possible by disabling any added cacheing and shadowing.

It might even not be a bad idea to reset the CMOS to default values, and minimize your hardware configuration until the problem is solved."

"These controls are located in a part of the system called "BIOS Settings", "BIOS Menu", "CMOS settings", "CMOS setup" or some similar variation. This should be covered in your user manual.

You usually enter "BIOS Settings" menu by pressing a specific key or keys during the beginning of the boot-up process. The specific key(s) to press are usually mentioned in a corner of the display as the system boots. They should also be in the manual. It is sometimes the "F2" key, or "Del", or a combination like "Ctrl+S" keys.

Once you've entered the menu, you'll see it provides many parameter settings organized in "pages". Basically, walk through the on-screen prompts until you see the settings having to do with cacheing and shadowing.

Every system and even current BIOS version has a different way to present these data, so we generally can't give you a specific keystroke-by-keystroke set of instructions. Again, your user manual should detail this information.

If you don't have a current user-manual, you should be able to go to the motherboard or system manufacturer's website to download a copy. It will usually be in .pdf format which will (in order to be able to read it) require a free .pdf reading application like Adobe Reader or Foxit."

This seems like good advice to me.

System manufacturer and model?

you stated that you had a BSOD error

We can figure out that with a program

Download BlueScreenView
No installation required.
Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.
When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.
Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.
Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

and this is for chkdsk log location http://www.computing.net/answers/windows-x...iles/58895.html if you ran a chdsk: /f

I was thinking of restoring back to another save point. but It looks like you solve it

While the system is working...

Disable Automatic Restarts When Windows Crashes - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/

I would run chkdsk /r on the system partition. Start/Run...type chkdsk /r and hit Enter. Type Y in new screen and hit Enter. Reboot the system.

Chkdsk /r should run to completion and then boot into XP.
