Hello,
I am not an expert with computers. I have a computer which is pretty old and windows xp. I dont know much other information about it but everytime time i try to start it up, it just reboots. I saw a few posts on this website and people talked about CDs. I dont know what they are. When i try to start my computer normally, during the "welcome to windows xp" part, it restarts. When i try start it in safe mode, "welcome to windows xp" shows up, and then it restarts. When i try with Safe mode with Networking/ command prompt, "welcome to windows xp" shows up and then reboots.

Please tell me what to do!

Hello,

Try this 1

1) When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options Menu" ( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and

keep tapping the F8 key)

2) Select the option "Last Known Good Configuration".

If the problem still exists then we need a Windows XP CD to check if the problem

is not from the OS.

Good Luck
