Incomplete install SP1, reboot recycles

By Chris K ·
I'm new to forum and XP. Have been using it awhile but frequently freezes. Sooo, uninstalled SP1 and SP2. Then from WinUpdate tried reinstall of SP1 and froze at very end and not complete. Reset and ever since then, it boots up to XP logo screen, then to light blank screen, then to dark, then to light and then loud click and it starts over.

Was finally able to get to Safe Mode screen and tried last good config, safe mode and all the other options and the same thing happens. It justautomatically recycles the reboot process.

What should I do?? I can't find my boot up disk but I have XP install disk. I do have some docs on there that I would not like to lose.

My machine is a AMD Athalon proc, 750 Mhz, 120 GB hd (80 free),256 MB mem, 2 CDROM, Netgear adaptor.

I tried the MS XP newsgroup but response is terrible slow. Someone said SP2 and SP1 may be incompatible so that's why I uninstalled them.

Help and Thanks,
