Does that help you in trying to see what is going on with the computer? It also left a bunch of technical numbers if you would want those too.

If you have the original Windows OS CD there is a chance that this link
could help you coming out of the BSoD, if the problem is not too complex as you probably have seen the link from Computer Hope http://www.computerh...es/ch000605.htm
The Fault Code can give more details; if you please will post it next time.
If this option didnít help try getting into Windows Advanced Options Menu again and choose the Last Known Good Configuration, then press Enter.
If this didnít help please go again in Widows Advaced Options Menu and navigate to Safe Mode_ NOT Safe Mode with Networking, then Press Enter:
After this, if the BSoD didnít show up, please follow the instructions in this link
to enter System Restore and restore the OS to an earlier date when your PC functioned good.
Another point is you stated in your last post that you were able to enter Safe Mode. The reason for that was to uncheck the Automatic Start of the PC as its in this link that I initially posted in my first response:
For Practicality reasons I copied the part of the instructions which is advised to apply to your PC to prevent it from Auto Start by malfunctioning of the PC:
For Windows XP users
Windows XP is designed to automatically reboot each time an error occurs such as a BSoD. Although this may be nice for errors that do not occur often, users who have a re-occurring error may wish to identify the error to troubleshoot it. Below are the steps on how this feature can be disabled and enabled in Windows XP:
- From the desktop right-click on My Computer.
- Click the Properties option.
- In the System Properties window click the Advanced tab.
- In Advanced click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
- In the Startup and Recovery window uncheck the Automatically restart check box.
- Click Ok.
(You can perform these steps after accessing your Desktop through Safe Mode, again.)
Now if the computer generates an error it should not automatically restart and enable you to display any errors your computer may be experiencing.
Õím just carious if the Automatic Rebooting problem started after the installation of the Power Supply! You might want to look at the following links if the problem is not helped yet and you feel comfortable in applying them to your computer. These links are from HP Customer Care and they explain that ďPower supply problems can be easily mistaken for other start up issues. To try and isolate the problem and use the correct troubleshooting stepsÖĒ.
I wish you lots of luck!
If my advice didnít help; Iím sure you will be better helped by G2G Tech Team as soon as they can.

Unfortunately I do not have the original Windows OS CD. I can get into Windows Advanced Options Menu and tried to start using the "Last Known Good Configuration" but it still keeps rebooting. The rebooting problem did not start after the installation of the new power supply. I actually re-installed the old power supply as that was not the problem, but the rebooting started before any of this was performed.
Here are the fault codes I received: "Stop: 0x000000ED (0x83649620, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
Hope this helps and thank you again for trying to help me.

Could you please check if this group of numbers ď0x83649620Ē is what your pc has displayed?

If there are procedures that you don’t feel comfortable doing them; just skip them.
This is a comprehensive overview for the below given PC Problem. Its not necessary to apply all the given methods if the computer functioning is helped after applying some of them.

UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME" error message
- Windows restarts without warning

- computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller

STOP 0x000000ED (0xaaaaaaaa,0xbbbbbbbb,0xcccccccc,0xdddddddd)
"If the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, the cause of the error is that the file system is damaged…(If not) check the IDE cable and load Fail-Safe settings"
Skip method 1 and apply method 2

As for losing your data I see no reason for that at the moment; however this is no Guarantee!
You might want first to only look globally through info in the links. See the troubleshooting process like brainstorming. Register all options, give it some time then make choice and select what is needed to solve the issue placing the most important elements on top of the fix list.
