I have posted this topic, which I hope does not get complicated. I have searched to come up with explanations of why windows keeps looping by restarting during the boot up but none of them seem to help.

Heres the problem:

After reading the guide on this site on repairing windows, I decided to actually do it, because of several factors. I keep getting C++ runtime errors when I try to play some games, Cant play DVDs or use windows movie maker. And also, I installed an update which I cant get rid of, and it stuffed up my 5 in 1 card reader/writer.

So this is what happens, I reboot with my XP installation CD (which came with the computer) and it got as far as the "Installing Network" stage, then it stalls. I tried once again, and again. Now I was angry, I cleaned the CD, but came to no solution, it still stalled. Now something new happens.

Currently, this is what happens:

The computer starts up, shows the XP loading screen, and then says "restarting setup", it then displays a black screen and reboots itself.

I hope a good solution will come up for this problem, and helps other users with the same problem.

Thank you for any help.

:tazz: It sounds like you need to perform a clean install, not a repair.

Yes, but now all it does now is start up, shows the loading screen for XP then restarts again after first showing the windows install screen with "restarting setup" and reboots itself.

and that means I cant perform a fresh install

Thanks for your help anyways
