My computer would not start. I suspected the power supply. When I replaced it, it get to the windows page and reboots. I try to boot in safe mode but it just continues in the reboot loop. It is WinXP home so I try the repair but it only goes to recovery console. Any idea of what I do from there. I ran chkdsk but came up with nothing. What can I do without reinstalling windows?

Can you continue there, or it reboots, as well?

Are you getting there, booting from Windows CD, or...?
In any case...

You will be at a command prompt window.
At the prompt type in fixboot and hit Enter.

If the above didn't work, repeat the procedure, but this time type in fixmbr and hit Enter.
