Hello,
I have a Compaq that had the hard drive replaced. This was about 4 years ago. We dusted it off and got it up and running. Started doing high priority updates. One went wrong and so we did a system restore. I went in and started doing just the high priority ones. There were 23 last night. Once it was done, I went to restart the computer and this is what happens. Compaq screen...flashes...Windows XP...flashes...restart over and over again. I can get the F8 screen and tried to do the Last Know Good Configuration but had the same result. Please help about ready to throw it!!!

We don't have the CD because hard drive was replaced by friend who put XP on it for us. Is there another way to fix it?
