What do you mean that it 'won't start up, it just keeps restarting again'?? Where does it boot to? Does it get past the BIOS screen and then reboot? Does it make it to the Windows screen and then reboot? A little more detail about your problem would be helpful.

Try starting your computer in Safe Mode. To do that, tap the F8 key when your computer is booting. Have you recently installed any new software?? If so, that could be your problem & you could try uninstalling it while in safe mode.

Okay. Restart your computer. When you see the BIOS saying the version etc, tap the F8 key. ( you can't wait until it's past that point, or it won't work) You should then see the Windows boot menu. If you are running Windows XP, the boot menu has to be there, and if it's not..... NOT a good thing! :)

For now, just start it in Safe Mode and see if it will boot all the way into Windows without constantly rebooting.

Ok.. Are you talking about 'memory' in terms of RAM or disk space? You can do several things to help free up disk space. You can clean out your internet cache. You can uninstall programs that you don't use. You can defragment your hard drive. As far as memory (RAM), you can download a program such as Startup Guru, that will show you everything that's loading when you boot your machine. That way, you could stop some things that you don't need/want from loading, therefore saving memory.
