well, my first inclination is that the issue is a BIOS update....I have run into a few pcs that will nto work with sp2
choose socket 462 in first box
choose your motherboard == K7VTA3 version 1 in the second box (be careful, there are 8 versions)
and download the bios update and install
However, this cpu is running pretty hot right now at 61 degree celcius.
Does this ever reboot with sp1?

When you installed, did you install Windows XP rtm, then sp1, then sp2?

Yes I installed Windows XP, I then attempted to install SP2 but it wouldn't install, the automatic updates kept stating that it failed, so I found SP1 thinking that maybe there was something it in that would help me with SP2. I was finally able to get SP2 downloaded and install and then my current problems arose.

Do not install with that update. I would have liked to see the windows update log for that error
A TWO WEEK difference in bios updates usually means they discovered a BIG problem--I would definitely be updating BIOS if that is the case.

I've download SP2 with the automatic updates four or five times so I've used different downloads. The seem to install OK, just when I restart I only get to the Windows XP screen and it restarts.
You state that you would like to see the windows update log where would I find that?
By the way thanks for your help!
