    Hey guys, I am working on a Dell Inspiron 2500 that's running Windows XP Home. After you turn the computer on, it revs up and then suddenly reboots. If I go into safe mode it works just fine. At first I thought the problem was caused by Norton Anti Virus 2002 and Symantec Live Update so I removed them both in safe mode but after I rebooted into normal mode the problem began again. Thanks in advance!

    Look through the startup items (start, run, msconfig, startup tab) and try disabling some things there.
