now while windows boots up it keeps resetting and starts over again so that it goes into this endless cycle
i remembered having a similar problem once due to a driver issue so i booted into safe mode and surfed thru the device manager but there doesnt seem to be any hardware conflict.
everything was fine prior to the sp2 install.
also ive reformated several times already, did all the updates, and driver install only to have this same problem again.
if anyone has any suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated
