I have Windows XP, and when the Windows loading screen appears, it lasts for about two seconds and then my system restarts. Any ideas, tips or suggestions? Thanks.

If you have SP2 you should be able to tap F8 at boot and navigate to the "disable automatic reboot" with the arrow keys. It may blue screen afterwards, write down the error message and post it here.

If you don't have SP2 and you are able to get to your desktop:
Control Panel> System> Advanced> Start Up & Recovery> Settings> untick "automatically restart my comp."
