At this point my PC is continuously rebooting just when the Windows XP screen appears. I canít boot to safe mode in any fashion or any mode. This started after I re-installed the OS. Prior to this re-installation my PC started to behave erratically. Repeated error messages for my anti-virus software, extremely slow processing of other programs, and other out of the norm issues. So after trying to correct this unsuccessfully via updating my anti-virus, spyware, adware, and so on, I did a fresh re-install of my OS. As mentioned previously. However, that didnít seem to solve any of the problems, so I tried to refresh the BIOS. Still the same issues. So I used Active Kill Disk to wipe the HD to zeros and did another fresh install of the OS. This time my OS just keeps rebooting (restarting) shortly after the splash screen, just when the Windows XP logo appears.

Iíve tried a few things to correct the lasted problem but nothing has worked. I tried booting from the installation disc and doing a ® repair to the system. First, CHKDSK, BOOTCFG, FIXBOOT, and FIXMBR. Second, a system32 fix with the kernel32.dll. And now Iím not sure.
Any assistance in solving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Time to run the appropriate hard drive diagnostic, I would think.

Louis,

Thanks for the tip. I passed the PC along to a tech company contracted by the company I work for. They suspect a HD issue as well. I was hoping it would be something less invasive. At least I have all my data backed up on an external.

Cheers!

James
