Having problems with your Gateway 838GM (RB838GM) PC Desktop ?

Computer is hung up in a loop and can't restart.

\015 My computer has Windows XP installed and something happened while I was gone. It is like it is hung up in a loop and can't get out. When I cut it off and cut it back on it acts like it is restarting but then it stops, goes blank and then carries me to the start up in safe mode window. I have tried all the choices but it does the same. Can you help?\015
