Looping restarts are a pain, mainly because you cannot see the error code associated with them. I am going to assume it is a generic driver error (error code 0x00000007E). That is a generic driver issue. If you cannot start in safe mode, then you likely have a bad memory chip or a hardware device going bad (probably the video chip). Get the diagnostics discs and run some tests on the hardware and memory. IF your hardware passes the diagnostics, then the OS could have a faulty driver. If thats the case, you may need to reinstall. But, before you go that far, try replacing the memory chips.
Sounds like it could be a virus. Or, a heat buildup problem - are all fans inside machine working? Is the fan inside the power supply operating? Was there any work done inside the computer recently? If the hdw is all ok, go out and buy yourself a copy of Norton Internet Security 2009 - 1 user lic - $49.99 @ Staples. Do *not* buy any earlier vers. of this software! Install, update it, run computer computer scan - probably will find/remove some/many viruses.
If this helps, please take the time to rate my response to you. Thanks and good luck.
You have a driver problem, possible conflict.
Go to the Device Manager and see which devices that need installing and are not working.
You could disable the drivers you installed and enable one driver at a time and test for stability before you enable another driver.
You could reinstall XP again or restore back to a date before you installed any drivers and then install one driver at a time and run your laptop for a while to see if it is stable before you install another driver.
I had to format and reinstall XP.When I run the driver (Realtek 97 AC), it warns me that it is not passed windows compatibility testing but I continue and it get about 90-95% complete when my computer restarts. help!!!!! need to onstall on xp
