Question about Microsoft Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005 for PC
Unfortunatly, a surge protector is no use for power outs.
You need a UPS battery backup.
You may have damaged some system files.
IF you have a copy of your windows installation on disc, you could try a repair installation. You boot from the disc, do not choose repair windows. You click the install windows option, when it checks for previous versions of windows, if it can be repaired, it will as if you want to do a repair installation.
It looks just like a full install, but you do not loose any files or programs.
If it does not give you the option, then it is damaged too much, you would need a clean installation, you would loose everything

When a desktop computer continuously restarts, it is typically an issue with the computer's power supply not being able to put out enough power to boot up the computer. (It takes more power to start the computer and get everything loaded than it does to keep it running.)
Usually this is caused by a faulty power supply, and the easiest solution is to replace it. New power supplies can be purchased for $30-$50... just make sure you get one that is compatible with your computer.
However, if you're having power issues as well, you might want to check the outlet where your computer is plugged into if you have a voltmeter or multimeter. If the voltage coming in isn't within the standard range (about 120 volts, plus or minus a few) the power supply won't be able to work correctly.
Your surge protector might also have been fried. Try plugging your computer directly into the wall outlet (bypassing the surge protector) and see if that makes a difference.
