Sounds like it could be bad memory or hard drive.
Have you tried to take everything loose and plug one thing up at a time? That is the best way to figure this out. You can try the hardware in a working machine and see if it works. You can put working hardware in this to see if it works. This is a hit and miss situation.

It really sounds like a bad hard drive more than anything.
HARD DRIVE PROBLEM

This sounds like a bad hard drive. What make of hard drive is in it?
Figure out what brand hard drive it is first. Then go to the website of the manufacturer.
While you are on the site look for software for hard drive repair. It could be listed in many ways. Download the windows version if you have another computer to test this in. If you do not have another computer to test this in you will have to use the Dos version. The instructions will come with the siftware.
Then you will go through these steps.
Do you have another computer that you can use to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook it up to the other computer. This will be an external slim hard drive enclosure. A desktop hard drive can be put in another desktop and used as a slave drive. Just make sure that you look at the back of the Hard Drive and make put the jumper on the slave pins. Then you can run the test through the other computer to test the Hard Drive. The test will let you know if the Hard Drive is bad or not. If you can see your files on the drive you might want to back them up before you start the test. If it comes back as good go to the next step.

FIX BOOT
You can boot it up with the recovery CD and run through it as if you were doing a setup and then when the second repaircomes up..... hit repair. This should repair any problem with the operating system. If you want to try the simple way... use the first repair that comes up. When the screen comes up with a blinking curser hit the number 1 then Enter........ When it ask you for a password hit enter. There should not be a password unless someone has put one in it. If there is a password it should be your master password.
Then type fixmbr and hit enter. This will fix your master boot record. If that does not work use the second repair. Sounds complicated but it is not.

CDROM PROBLEMS / Hard Drive Problems

Check your IDE cable inside that plugs into it. This will be the wide cable. Does it light up? Your power supply could be going bad. Unplug them one at a time and see if they work. Look at the jumpers and make sure the last one on the cable is on Master and the other one is slave. Sounds like a bad cable or connection if you swap the cable and it works.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya. I did more than try, I told you exactly what had to be done.
If that does not solve the problem, let me know what is wrong and I will try to help more.

How do I repair a system that boots to the Windows 7 logo and then reboots itself a second time?


I agree (in part) with "map9966's" answer, but instead of trying to blindly load the "last known good configuration", You really should try the Windows Startup Repair option. This option should also be located in the "safe mode" menu, which again access by repeatedly pressing F8 right after turning on the PC. Once you get to the menu stop pressing F8.

Using the arrow keys on your keyboard, highlight the choice which reads (something to the effect of) "startup repair". The PC then *should* "boot" to the start up repair mode. This mode is an automatic utility, and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the speed of your PC, the severity of file system damage and the underlying cause of your start-up loop. Let the utility finish, (again, this WILL take awhile.. go have yourself a snack, take a walk, watch some TV..) Once it's done, restart the PC.

In most circumstances (assuming the start-up loop isn't due to a hardware failure), your PC should boot up just fine. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me!

When I boot up it loops from the first windows screen to setup is being restarted am running win xp cant get it to boot from cd.


Sounds like you may have to reload windows, so Yes, your first step is to get it to boot off the CD. When you first turn on your computer you have to go into the BIOS by rapidly hitting the <Delete> key. There is a chance it is another key which would be F1, F2, or Esc. Once in here you should see a "boot menu" where you can change the first boot option to "CD" Exit with Saving. This will then enable the computer to first boot off the CD.
One thing you can also try is rapidly hit "F8" and you will get a windows menu before you see the windows screen. Try the "Last know good configuration" option to see if that will get you back into windows. Also you can go to the safe mode and once in there go to Start-->Accessories-->System tools--> system restore. Then pick a date when you know the computer was working fine and hopefully it should boot back up fine.
Good luck
