Use the system disk to repair XP

by bobp In reply to Computer restarts itself ...

Boot from the system CD. This may require hitting a key to change the boot order - so that it boots from the CD. After the various parts load from the CD, hit Enter as if you were going to reload the system from scratch. Hit F8 to approve the MS agreement. When it goes to the next screen, hit R to repair the system. It will remove many parts of the system on the hard disk and replace them with fresh ones from the system CD. The should fix your problem if it is caused by a damaged system.

Due to the date of your post, this won't help you, but could help somebody else.
