Having problems with your Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop ?

Compaq presario is in a continual start up loop (it's not a notebook). I got it to come up in safe mode but don't know where to look for the next problem.

\015\012Another good source of info is to do a google search on "troubleshoot xp startup problem", or vista, if that's what you have. See here, e.g.
\015\012Finally, see this article for excellent advise on how to troubleshoot the issue. The restart condition is a default system condition that is reverted to in the event that there is some kind of system failure. This can be caused by hardware devices or drivers, corruption of the file system, malware, and so forth. You can disable this restart and get a stop error code that will help you to diagnose the exact cause. ( See article and here.) The event viewer will be an invaluable tool as well, in determining the source of the problem. As will the device manager.
\015\012If you get specific codes you'd like help sorting out, write back and let us know what they are.

Boot.exe virus might cause the problem or the memory, or Hardisk full?Try to replace the memory,check IDE/SATA connection if symptom persist, there might be a problem with the boot sector.In safe mode try to run CHKDSK, if this wont solve the problem,try another solution reformat the disk ,but delete the old and create new primary dos partition
