As soon as it starts to reboot, keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose safe mode with networking
Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.
Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

edit: after reading posts from other people with similar problems to me i have figured that it may be a problem with the cooling of my computer. i downloaded SpeedFan and it tells me Fan1 is at 1688RPM and Fan2 is at 0RPM. i have never cleaned my computer or even opened it up.With no programs running and only 2 explorer windows open the results from SpeedFan are: Temp1 is fine at 34degrees celcius but Temp2 stays between 47-50degrees celcius. when i tried playing a small online flash game, the Temp2 rose to 50 degrees and stayed there. would this be because of Fan2 not working at all. If it is then can you give me steps on cleaning out my computer and fixing the fan. thanks.

F8 usually gives the start up options, delete or F2 gives the BIOS set up
Run the check disk
It is looking like hardware
