I have read some posts on the internet, but none seem to be similar to my situation. I have loaded and used Vista Ultimate for over 3 years now with my 3 year old computer and just recently it started to restart automatically when it's loading windows. I get an option to safe mode start with either networking drivers or command prompt but any selection I choose still gets restarted automatically. It never was a problem before and my computer has been stable for 3 years now, anyone know of a solution to get back into windows so that I may save my files and then I will just do a clean install. I don't have a secondary HDD so a few options are out anyone know anything else that might help?

P.S I also have Windows 7 Ultimate and when I put the disk in it loaded the installation phase but I cannot upgrade from startup I have to be in Windows to do that, and I don't want to do a clean install. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.

Specs:

AMD 5600+
ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe
4GB Patriot DDR2 (4x1)
150GB WD Raptor
SB 2 Audigy
ATI 512 DDR3 VD (i dont remember the model, was made in 2006-2007)
500W Antec PS
