    Hi I have a gatewy i purchsaed in 2002. I was trying to install windows service pack 2 which failed, at the end i got an error message which i do not have the number. However it was for some type of securtity issue. Now i cannot get into windows, the computer keeps powering off and on after seeing the windows xp logo on the screen. I have tried safe mode and the recovery console with no luck. I have not had any issues up until yesterday. I would appreciate any advice or input. Thanks. :)
