Red face windows boot problem

okay guys...so here's the deal....i've been using my computer for 6 months with no problems..then today...i restart it and it gets right to the end of the lil green xp loading bar...then the computer restarts...over, and over, and over...and i have no idea whats causing it...i've tried last known good confguration, startup in safemode..all that it always restarts....any questions (and when i use the xp install disk to restore it...it doesn't detect the previous install...) as always, thanks a lot for the help!

I had that same thing happen to me. The problem for me ended up being the power supply

Torvalds was contemptuous of Microsoft's claims and has asked Redmond to name the patent infringements so that their veracity can be challenged and workarounds found.
"Naming them would either make it clear that Linux is not infringing at all (which is quite possible, especially if the patents are bad), or would make it possible to avoid infringing by coding around whatever silly thing they claim,"

"So the whole 'We have a list and we're not telling you' should tell you something. Don't you think that if Microsoft actually had some really foolproof patent, they'd just tell us and go, 'nyaah, nyaah, nyaah!'?"
