My computer has been rebooting within 2-5 seconds on my account and anywhere from 2-5 seconds to 2 hours on the other account. I've gone back to last known config, and Ive gone back several restore points and nothing works. When I try to reinstall windows XP and reformat, it loads the blue windows xp setup screen and loads the setup files, then says setup is starting windows and computer powers off. When I turn it back on it shuts off after 5 seconds and I have to turn it on again. Every once in awhile setup loads but when I press enter to start new installation it shuts off. I also tried using zerofill from seagate and it loads it then freezes up after the utility loads. I can keep the computer up in safe mode, but if I run norton it locks up. I've looked in the event manager and I get these two errors every crash.
