Hey,

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.

Date: 5/15/2005 Source: event system
Time 12:23:17 AM Category: (50)
Type: Error Event ID: 4609

Computer RYAN-025YJDVQHR

The COM+ Event System detected a bad return code during its internal processing. HRESULT was 8007043C from line 44 of d:\nt_qxp\com\com1x\src\events\tier1\eventsystemobj.cpp. Please contact Microsoft Product Support Services to report this error.

and

Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreatInstance. hr = 0x80040206.

then under the system tab:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
black.

Sorry this is so long, but I've been workin at this all day and can't figure it out. I haven't added any new hardware or software for a few months.

when you view these events you can send a report and access the M$ knowledge base. Does the knowledge base provide any insight? Constant reboot is generally caused by heat, memory, driver issues or power supply. Next post, provide your system specs including the psu amps per rail.

The computer wont stay online long enough to connect to the internet. So I cant send the event.

VCORE Voltage 1.68V
+3.3V Voltage 3.20V
+5V Voltage 4.83V
+12V Voltage 12.41V
ASUS PC Probe that came with my mobo shows that the power hasnt had any spikes or drops in the past month.

Thats all I can get through BIOS, computer wont stay up long enough to run anything that can tell me more, and their isnt a label on my psu.

The accounts are letting me stay on and dont reboot for several hours now. I still can't reformat or run zerofill. I ran AdAware, Spybot S&D and found nothing. All my temperatures are normal and haven't fluctuated more than 5 degrees in either direction.
CPU : 54 C / 129 F
Mobo: 34 C / 93 F
HDD: 42 C / 108 F

I also sent the errors to microsoft, and the COM+ came back telling me to enable it in MCC but my I still have the inability to reformat.
