Hi fellow geeks :tazz: My computer specs are Windows xp home edition 60gig hdd Intel celeron processor 2.70ghz 512mb intel extreme graphics video card (64mb)

ok well it all started when I was playing xbox live with afew friends & I seen my computer shutdown so i went to turn it back on & see if the power or some thing over-ran it self It was fine but when I restart it..

The Emachines logo shows when i turn on my comp & then when its just about to go into "Windows loading" Screen It Restarts..

I tryed pressing F8 to go into Safe mod Didn't work when I goto Safe mod & press Enter it just says Boot From Windows (default) And it just keeps doing the same thing over & over & For any other option when I try to Get my last known good settings It just says Windows (default) but although I can manage to get into F8

I really dont know what to do the last thing I wanna do is Pay 50 bucks & give it to a Comp tech Here in jersey.. Anyways I dont have my windows XP Cd but I'll keep searching for it Although maybe my cousin has one but What ever is there ANYTHING I can do to get back into windows And find out what caused this? Im virus protected with AVG & Znealarm for my firewall (always set to high some times medium) but please any help?

if you can't boot into safe mode at all, you will need a bootable disk to do any troubleshooting. If you don't have one, go to http://www.bootdisk.com/

Do you have the windows install cd or the emachines recovery cd?
