Can't even get to log in screen (Windows xp pro)

  1. A couple days ago my computer (not this one) has started acting weird. Like when you turn it on the IBM screen comes up, then it tells you that you have like 30 seconds to start in the last good config, safemode, or normally. The when you choose one the windows xp logo comes up and acts like its loading, then the bsod flashes really quick and the whole thing restarts and does that all over again.

    I've tried booting from the a win xp cd but nothing even comes up and the whole thing starts over
