Hello, I have an AMD athlon xp CPU with 512 RAM, Nvidia 5700 GPU and an Asus A7N8X MB. Recently when I start my computer, it undergoes the usual sequence of starting up but when windows tries to go to desktop, I get a very brief flash of a blue screen ( so brief that I am unable to read the message) then it reboots and repeats the cycle over and over, never going to desktop. I do not get any error reading on posting from the motherboard and I haven't made any recent changes to the computer. The only new software I installed recently were some children's games. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
