Question about ASUS P5V800-MX Motherboard
I am guessing from your description that you are stuck in a reboot loop where no matter what option you choose the computer automatically reboots before you get into windows. If you have not tried other options then I would start with last known good configuration and if that does not work then try safe mode. The problem is most likely a driver causing problems on startup.
If safe mode works then you will need to find the driver or other software causing problems (likely the last software that was installed) and uninstall it then reboot to see if that works.
If last known good configuration works then you should not need to do anything else.
If none of it works then you will need to reinstall windows. If you have a regular windows disk (I am guessing you are running XP) and not a manufacturer restore disk then you can boot off the disk. The first screen will ask if you want to run the recovery console. just hit enter to go past that. The next screen should say that it found a previous windows install and ask if you want to repair it. Hit R for repair when you see that screen and you should not loose any data or have to reinstall any software. That might not fix the problem though which would mean that you need to do a fresh install instead of repairing the current install and you would then need to reinstall all of your software. You might also want to find out about getting any data off the drive that you do not want to loose before you do a fresh install.
