Question about HP Compaq dc5100 Small Form Factor PC Desktop
Compaq Presario starts booting but powers off/on at the Windows screen and starts the boot over again. It is in a continual loop. Tried booting in Safe Mode...same problem.
Open up the desktop and replace your CMOS battery, or atleast test it and see if the re-booting stops. If not and you have your XP installation disc you may have to do a system repair, start your pc with disc in and press enter when prompted, but make sure that your cd drive is set up as first boot in the bios.
