I have reformatted three times, 1st time updated everything except sp2, got the same endless restart. Second time updated a critical fix (ends in 626) supposed to fix the bios, from Compaq, same result, endless reboot. This third time I am running with no updates, spyware or virus protections.
Microsoft recommeds that I contact Compaq, and Compaq recomends I contact MS. Other than splurging for a MAC I dont know what to do. Some other poor chap in this forum has the same problem nut has not posted his solution, if he found one.
Please help someone...
thanks in advance. (PS my pc works perfectly without any updates, so I know its not the equipment, but I know its vounerable this way)
