    I'm not exactly sure what's going on here, but my PC keeps automatically restarting. I can't even get into Windows XP. I don't have the software with me and I have no way of getting it soon. Maybe three or four days until I can get it. Starting in Safe Mode doesn't work, last known configuration doesn't work either. I'm running out of options here, could someone please enlighten me?

    Many thanks. I guess I will just have to wait until I get the CD. Again, thank you.

    I went through this a while back and my solution was so simple that no one thought of it. My computer was over-heating. The fan that cools the motherboard broke loose from it's containment device. I replaced it with a two dollar part (that I had to special order - grrrrr) and all has been fine ever since. Try removing the side cover of your CPU and just set a larger fan to blow inside. It's worth a try!
