First make sure there isn't anything in any drives CD's floppy, USB thumb or hard drives. When it's rebooting and the screen goes blank and starts up again, Start tapping the F8 key continuously as soon as you hear the post beep. If that doesn't work, try entering the BIOS by doing the same thing only use the key for your machine to enter the BIOS (most desktops are "delete"). If you can get into the BIOS, set your CD drive as first in the boot sequence. If that works save changes in the BIOS and load your XP CD and do a repair install

ok i tried to put the cd as the first one in the biosscreen. but it is not staying booted long enough to read the the backup cd i burned. i was messing around with it before you responded and got a screen that said c0000135 (unable to locate componant)this application failed to start because winsrv was not found re-installing this application may fix the problem. i t will let me in bios and the f5 the safe mode screen but after you leave those applications it reboots

Have you tried putting the disk in the PC, and letting it reboot with the CD in?

I'm no techie, but my PC did that to me once, and it turned out that the processors automatically updated their drivers, which caused it to reboot on a loop. The tech guy told me if it were to ever happen again to just go into safe mode and roll back the driver(s) on your processor(s)...

Like I said, I'm no techie, but I'm just trying to pass along what little I do know. :thumbsup:

Kind Regards,
