it will not boot from the windows xp cd goes to the screen with safe mode etc and when i choose safe mode the windows xp splash screen comes up then it just shuts down and restarts on its own
This is happening because you need to change the boot order in the BIOS/SETUP so that it tries to boot from the CD-ROM drive before the Hard drive. When you first turn ont he computer, it should say what F
key to press to enter SETUP. If it doesn't, the normal keys that are used are DEL
If none of that works, then please post the make and model # of your computer and I will help you find what key you need to press to enter BIOS/SETUP.
