Specs: Windows XP


I was hoping someone could help me with my computer issues. I've been playing around and looking for information on the internet for a few days now to no avail. Previous posts seemed close to my problem, but not quite.

My computer repeatedly and automatically reboots itself once it reaches the screen with the Windows Logo. I've also tried Safe Mode and last known config. which also causes the computer to reboot repeatedly. I just can't seem to get into my computer to look around, it's locked me out! I'm not sure if its a virus from h*ll, or hardware problems. HELP!!

Boot from your OS cd.
Choose Recovery Console.
At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r
Hit enter and after it's done type exit hit enter, reboot and you should be able to get in as normal.

I will try this tonight (computer is at home) and be sure to respond. I do not have an OS disk, everything was pre-installed on the Acer. I'm guessing I would use the F12?
