Re: system restarts on its own.

If you have been connected to the internet without the proper virus software or spyware software then you may have contracted a virus or you may have spyware causing your system to automatically reboot. If you do have a virus software remove your computer from the internet after you have updated the virus software. Run the virus software to see if you have any viruses. I suggest then to look in Add/Remove programs and start uninstalling any software that you are not familiar with if the system allows you to do so.

Product key win xp sp2

The product key is located on the side of the desktop tower or bottom of the laptop it came with. If you bought the cd separately it will be located in the packaging. I can help further if you explain the exact problem you are experiencing.

My computer reaches the win xp starup screen then a blue screen flashes theen it restarts

There are a lot of reason why this is happening. It may be a newly installed hardware, one of the hardware is damaged or it may also be the RAM. You can try reseating the ram first. If that does not help, if you have hardware connected through USB, disconnect it first.
Install the operating system (win XP) with the mouse, keyboard and the monitor connected. Other peripherals (hardware) should be disconnected to the tower.
