Auto Reboot On System Crash
http://www.theeldergeek.com/auto_reboot_on_system_crash.htm
By default, when the Windows XP operating system crashes an automatic reboot of the system occurs. While this behavior can be convenient, the downside is the error message accompanying the crash is not visible. Often times this information can be a great help in troubleshooting the source of the crash. This behavior can be modified in two ways; via the registry or using the System Properties property sheet.

If you have not made any hardware changes...........
and
If you have another power supply laying around and
if
you are comfortable swapping out power supplys.
do that real quick and see if it boots.

Problem resolved. I had a virus on the boot of the hard drive. Also at my McAfee antivirus it said about a new virus advisory of a high risk worm. This is what it says:

W32/ircbot.worm!ms05-039 is a high risk worm. You can be infected simply by going online. Once infected, your system amy restart continously.

So I had another hard drive wish I formatted and installed Windows xp.

At my Amibios setup, I had Trend ChipAway virus enable on my western digital hard drive. So I used my western digital Data Lifeguard tools disk.
Suddenly a message said that i was infected with the above virus.It said Trend Chipaway had detected a virus on the boot drive. And to go to certain website( i forgot) to remove it. I wonder where i can go to remove it.Thanks to all.
