Hey guys, my girlfriends computer crashed recently, and when we restarted it, it would continously restart...never go to windows. I shut it down, restarted it. Same problem, make it to the Windows XP screen then quit. I shut it down again, got mad, then decided to put the XP CD in and try to use Recovery, it crashed before I got there. Got more mad, and decided to reformat...got to the point in Windows XP setup right after it loads everything on the bottom of the screen and it says "starting windows" (I think thats what it says). Soon as it hits the screen you can select different options it shuts down. I tried a different hard drive and it came up with the same problem. Its not over-heating (I can leave it on CMOS forever), reseated memory, checked everything visibly. Wierd thing is is that I just had the same problem with my computer about a month ago. I replaced the MOBO, and everything was fine. Sure do hope I can get some help, cause I'm at a loss. Soyo Motherboard 2.4GHz Pentium 4 768mb DDR 133 Visiontek Radeon X1550 The computer has ran like a champ with no errors or mess-ups for about 6 years, then she started getting a lot of spyware, viruses, and other crap that these lazy people come up with, then thats when the problems started happening. Random program crashing, computer not performing as well, etc. Had AVG, Symantec, and I believe Zone Alarm. Nothing picked up anything recently. Thanks guys.
