The problem all comes down to the computer continuously restarting... forget the rest I was just reitering on how the problem started... what it all comes down to is the computer continuously restarts and I have done the appropriate actions as per described by several tech sites on renaming the kernel32.dll file via through xp pro cd and expanding the one on the cd onto the comp.

I think i've said it clearly in my first post but n e way again... my problem is I cannot log into windows at all or even reach the windows xp log on screen. The computer just continuously restarts over and over again. I need help for that.

Two suggestions

In reply to: urgent

First -- Stick to one thread for one problem. If you do start a new thread and refer back to the first, please provide a link. It is a pain to search for the oiginal, and many will not bother.

Second -- As your problem seems to be related to some system file, but not necessarily the one mentioned in the error message, try running SFC (system file checker). It may find the problem and restore the proper file.

Please describe the symptoms exactly

In reply to: urgent

When does it restart? Do you get to any sort of boot screen? How far into the boot does it go before restarting? When did this behavior begin?

Recently I had a similar problem on one of my systems. It would start into the boot sequence with the little blue bar floating back and forth, then the screen would go black like it was ready to put up the desktop graphic, and then it would beep and go back to the power-up BIOS screen and start the boot cycle again. Nothing helped, not safe mode, logging revealed nothing useful, it always restarted itself just as it reached the end of the boot sequence.

The problem was a faulty Windows update patch. Microsoft tech. agreed that particular one was problematic on some machines. In the end, I used the XP installation CD to do a repair reinstallation of the operating system (all programs and data were retained) and then when I downloaded the update patches again, I skipped that one. If this describes your situation, I'll look up the exact number of the bad patch when I get home tonight.
