[/FONT] Tap F8 when the PC starts, but instead of Safe Mode
Select disable automatic restart on system failure on the Windows Advanced Options Menu.
That's not always an option on all systems though.
If not, boot to safe mode, and disable the automatic reboot like this:
Right click My Computer, click Properties
Click the Advanced tab
Under Startup and Recovery click the Settings... button
Under System Failure uncheck
Automatically restart
Ok back to the desktop, and then reboot. This will let the system stop so you can see the error

Post the complete error message here.

*Do you have a restore recovery or install disc if so what does it say on the disc?
