When I turn the computer on it starts up and I can see the desktop with no icons, and then it automatically shuts itself off. It does this continously. I have booted into safe mode and done a system restore with no luck. I don't have an XP installation disk, so haven't tried to "repair" it that way, any ideas as to what I can do? Thank you.

In safe mode:

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This should result in the BSOD error...report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
