Default Endless Reboot (Did a Search!)

Well each search on this topic brought up a different cause and a slight difference. Ok, heres mine:

A program was searching for files and then Explorer crashes, so we restart and then the Windows XP boot screen appears and brings me to the screen of where it has the options such as, "Safe mode, Start Windows Normally", etc etc. But each one, when we try it, it will just do that over and over. Computer is new fyi. So yea, start throwing possible causes at me, could the RAM be dead? I cant understand why that could cause this though.

If the computer is booting to the windows xp screen it might not be a mobo or a ram problem. U might just need to reinstall xp.
One disk to rule them all,
One disk to bind them,
One disk to hold the files
And in the darkness grind \'em.

go into bios and change the fast boot setting. since its happening in safe mode, I would try reseating the mem and cpu and have a bare minimum start up config (as in, remove the floppy, cdrom, snd card, etc.. just bare minimum)... and try to boot then add them back one at a time and see if you can get into safe mode first. If you can, then try for nomral mode.
