I have been working on these all night.

My PC POST but blank afterward.

Long story short, at first, it POST then stayed on the XP logo screen (the very 1st screen before xp login) for about 1 minute then restarted itself. This kept repeating.

Here is what I've done for that:
1. I tried the Safemode. It immediately restarted itself. Same for all available XP boot option.
2. I tried booting from XP Disc and chose the REPAIR option. It restarted itself.
3. I finally decided to try a clean installation. Repartition and installing a clean XP.

The installation process seems to going well. However, after reboot and POST, now it just stay at the blank screen. BIOS recognizes the HD and the memory stick. What else could be the problem??

I suspected the PS, but if that will be the case, it will not power up at all, will it? How about the memory stick? It passed the BIOS memory test.

Any suggestion is very much appreciated!! HELPPPPPPPPPP!!

To clarify my post above, what I mean by the XP installation process is the direct installation from the CD (with blue backgroup color), not the configuration process in the XP. It never boot into XP.
