Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
I would bet even money that it is your software, not your hardware. But rebooting does NOT always fix this. Because this often happens when the OS can not initialize a core device like your system board, video, etc. For example, take a Windows OS loaded on an Intel PC and move it to a PC using an AMD processor, "Yeah, good luck!". Similarly, drive failures can also cause a perpetual reboot, I had it happen when a Windows 2000 computer crashed during a defrag of the system drive. In these cases I have always had to either restore the system partition, restore the registry (hard in Win2K), or reload Windows completely. Even trying "fixmbr" or "fixboot" in the recovery console didn't help.
If this is the case for you and your not doing NT backups on this machine, I recommend doing an NT backup of a similar machine and restore the system state from the recovery console.

It is stuck in a loop, when it is rebooting turn it off at the power button on your pc.
Turn it back on, then it should say windows shutdown unexpectidely and then prompt you to start windows as normal, highlight it and press enter.

That can be frustrating :( hope my solution below helps..
on the current situation, I suggest trying the following steps: restart
the computer and keep pressing F8; Use Last Known Good Configuration.
the issue still occurs after that, I suggest testing if we can boot
from a Windows disk. If so, please install Windows on another
partition and access your important data. After backing up those data,
you can use Windows disk to format the drive and reinstall Windows.
However, if we cannot boot from a Windows disk, the issue can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings or damaged hardware. I recommend contacting your computer manufacturer to check BIOS and hardware.
