Make sure you read and do everything here. If nothing works, post your system specs using the dxdiag method mentioned in that link.

i do own the game and i did all that....

my computer can handle the game cause it worked before, but i formatted and need to try to get it working again. The drivers are up to date because i just downloaded them from nvidia.

And i am not sure which files i can close under the proccesses tab(winxp) because they say they r system files...

Actually a couple error messages did popup real fast before it restarted...didn't get to read it but it said something about a dll...

I did the sfc /scannow ... haven't tried to install since then tho...

I reformatted my computer but it still restarts. It also restarts when i try to install the hl patch. When it comes back up it says it has recovered from a serious problem...

Have you cleaned out your computer recently? Open up the case, and clean out all the dust inside, then point a fan towards it, and try again.

If that doesn't work, I would suspect some faulty hardware...
