:thumbsup: Hope someone can help ... new to site so just hope this works!

Currently trying to boot up on xp but before it can get to login screen computer restarts ... and basically just keeps going in the same loop! Have tried loading in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration and normal mode... all with same result, computer restarts itself before getting anywhere near login screen ...

Really am desperate now for a remedy ...any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Cheers Guys :flowers:

It sounds like at this point the best option is to do a repair install.

There is nothing I have seen that will solve this issue if Safe Mode & Last Known Good Config. will not work.

What kind of computer do you have?
Some have restore partitions installed on the hard drive.

Did your computer come with restore disks or do you have a Windows XP full installation disk, or ?

It's as lim chance but you could try to run 'chkdsk' from The Recovery Console via XP cd. If you don't know how to achieve this, post back.
