My computer starts to load xp but then turns off, it doesn't even get to the xp page I've tried running it in all modes but nothing seems to work. I've even unplugged all external hardware and it still won't work. HELP!!!!

... can you enter the bios?

... if so leave it turned on for a while to see if it stays "on" also check to see if the dates are scrambled and that it see's the hard drive etc

... see if it'll save settings on exit .... if not suspect cmos battery!... change it... caution if removing it on certain machines with bios password unknown.
