    Yes, that can also be a problem, actually the most common reasonf or this problem is first the power supply, then RAM and lastly the processor..

Starting problem


Immediately after seeing the Dell logo, keep tapping the 'F8' key,
until you see a "menu" (white text over a black background)
giving "startup" options for Windows XP.

Select "Safe Mode" and see if you can start in that mode.
Then, use "System Restore" to go "back" in time, to the most-recent checkpoint (date/time) where your computer _DID_ work.

Restore to that point, and restart.

Rebooting is tipical of Windows XP when there is an important error. Most of the time this error is coming from the hardware.
There is a way to know the error code that make Windows XP mad, but you have to eliminate the automatic restart option.
With your mouse right click on My Computer, select properties, select advanced and you should see something similar:

deselect Automatically restart.
At this point next time you will have the error instead of rebooting you will see a blue screen with some message at the top and some code at the bottom, please write them down and post them here.

In case you cannot even enter in Windows XP because is keeping rebooting too fast, try to do the above steps in Safe mode.
To enter in Windows in Safe mode you have to press F8 as soon as you boot and before you see the windows logo on you screen, then select safe mode and repeat the steps above.

Last but not least, please send me the exact type of motherboard, processor and memory that you are using.

A Security Central adware/scareware has infected my windows xp and will not allow download fixes. I am told microsoft offers a free service takeover remote repair and clean up. Being computer illiterate,...


The only spyware removal service that Microsoft offers free is a Trial of OneCare or the free Windows Defender.

To self remove this, your best bet is to reboot in safe mode. To do this reboot the computer, tap F8 after your logo screen but before the windows logo screen. Select Safe mode with networking. Download www.superantispyware.com and update it. then run and see if that solves your problem.

Microsoft offers no support for their products if the product was purchased through a computer manufacturer like Dell, Acer, Gateway, Emachine, etc.

My Acer Aspire 1 gets stuck when the Windows XP logo apears and just keeps booting, what can I do?


Hard Drive error on the Disk most likely... Try to go to Windows "Safe Mode"... pressing F5 before you see the XP Logo and after you see the system information screens. Once in safe mode... run ScanDisk.
Open My Computer | Right Click C Drive | Left Click Properties | Tools Tab Run Check Disk for Errors... also check mark both boxes.
Reboot

My Gateway GT4010 PC keeps rebooting itself before


Try replacing the hard drive cable. If that doesn't fix the problem, then you may have bad RAM, bad motherboard or a bad power supply. Sounds like a hardware issue and not software. try booting your computer in safe mode since it doesn't load all the device drivers. If it still reboots then you'll have to keep swapping parts and booting up the computer to isolate the problem.

Black screen on monitor


do you have your original windows software disk?
you can go to safe mode by pressing f8 during the boot sequence.. tap f8 a few times from the second the computer starts to boot.
It is possible you have a virus or something that damaged the master boot record.

Here is a tutorial on recovering the MBR:
To access this, I booted the system from a Windows XP CD, waited for files to be loaded into memory, then selected R for recovery console, selected my Windows XP installation and entered the administrator password.
Once inside the Windows XP recovery console, I tried the fixboot command. This didn’t seem to make any difference on reboot, so I tried again with fixmbr. After another reboot, Windows XP was up and running (some Internet sites suggest fdisk /mbr but that’s not a recovery console command under Windows XP).

Hello,

To boot from the disc, you need to restart your computer. As soon you see the HP logo screen keep on tapping F12. You should select the option CD/DVD drive or CD drive. Make it sure that your XP cd is inserted.
