This is very common

and it happens because windows is set to "restart on error"
If you want to try a few things you can press the F8 key repeatedly during start up, then you can select the option to "disable restart on error"
Once you do that you will either get a blue screen error message or check disk will be invoked. That might fix the problem for you.
If none of that works you can try starting the computer with the xp installation disk and do an in place repair of the installation.
If that still doesn't fix it you will be faced with a 3rd party software issue or possibly a hardware failure or conflict
