Hello,





All of a sudden Xp keeps rebooting while loading up. It gets to the splash screen and then reboots. I can't get into safe mode, same thing happens. Even if I chose safe mode command prompt it will just reboot.

I am desperate to try and save the files/applcations on the computer so am reluctant to reinstall

This is a friends computer and the CD's are long gone. The computer itself is about 3 years old. Not even a registration key
