I can't use my computer.

When I go to log into my computer with XP(for the record I have 2 computers, 1 running on Windows XP and the other on Windows Vista) it keeps saying a really long message that I can't read because it only shows up for about half a second before my computer restarts. It keeps doing this over and over again nonstop and I need some help on how to fix this. I'm not sure what the problem is but it's making me mad because I just got it back from the computer shop and they said it was running perfectly.
Please respond before I blow a mental-fuse.

Can you get to the Windows Selection Screen by pressing F8 during boot? If so, select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure". Then you will see the blue screen error. Record the data and post it here.

Note: This is only available if you have SP2 installed.

You can also try selecting Last known good configuration (that worked) from that same selection screen.
