  1. Im having problems trying to get my computer to boot back up. yesterday i updated the bios of my motherboard b/c i got a stop message saying that the bios should be updated, so i did. and now it wont boot up properly, it starts up normally, then when it gets to the windows xp loading screen, it takes a long time and then the screen goes black and it starts to restart again. i tried booting from the cd and repairing windows several times and nothing happened. ive also tried the floppy method but dir c: comes up with invalid drive. any help would be appreciated

    First, what BIOS do you have (or that you updated to)?

    You could try setting your Bios to fail safe settings.
