Angry Ok, wtf is going on?

Ok just a couple of minutes ago I restarted my pc trying to boot into Xp Pro. Ok it's all well loading and stuff...the indicator bar keeps going and going and then a blank black screen and the pc restarts. It keeps on doing this every time now? Any ideas on what might have caused this?

Try tapping the F8 key while it's booting, then select Safe Mode. If you can boot into safe mode fine, try selecting 'Last Known Good configuration'.

If you can get windows up and running try using BootVIS to optimise your booting
