My computer (XP) continuously re-boots.It comes up normally, but then the screen goes blank and the computer re-boots itself as if I purposely hit the re-start! It has rendered the system totally useless. I tried to boot from the XP CD to repair or recover, but as it goes through the motions to read the system, the same re-boot occurs. I have tried to boot up in safe mode with the same result. Is there a fix? Help please!:eek:

That it occurs when you are trying to boot to a bootable cd (the XP install cd) would to me indicate that the most likely culprit is the Power supply , which is cycling off and then the bios setting of restart after power failure is starting it back up.

Yes, bad memory, a bad IDE cable or ide controller, bad motherboard or any of a number of other things could cause it too.
