Specs: Windows 8, Corei5/4gb
When the power is turned on, it keeps cycling through the splash screen. Looks like it keeps restaring over and over again. Can not access anything. How can I reimage this hd?

Does it ever appear to begin booting into windows? Do you notice a momentary blue screen? If so try tapping F8 before windows starts to load and see if you get the windows boot menu. Try safe mode from there.

If that doesn't apply then see if you can get into bios setup. As soon as it starts up start tapping F2. Thst should be the key to get into bios setup. Once there you can check to see if it's seeing the hard drive. But the problem you're having wouldn't normally indicate a bad drive. Did you make any changes to the computer prior to having the problem?

Also, as soon as you power on start tapping the F8 key. If you manage to get to the startup screen (white writing on black background) then it might be possible to move forward from there. Try Safe Mode, if you get that far, and let us know if you make it.

If you can get to either Command Prompt or Safe Mode then System Restore might be possible - that way you don't lose all your own stuff.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

It's not going anywhere besides the Viaos splash screen. This is truly the first time I have seen this.

It goes Power On- Viao Splash screen-restart, Viao Splash, restart.....

Can't press any keys because it's not on long enough for me to press anything before it reboots and continues the cycle. I have tried taking the HD off replacing it, replacing the RAM, and still keeps doing the same process.

Mostly this turns out to be some sort of hardware fault. Overheating is possible. If you leave the computer off for 30 minutes or so does it still restart immediately?

Do you recall doing anything just before this problem came along?

You will most likely to have to do some work inside the laptop to make any headway, although watch for other ideas on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

"How can I reimage this hd?"

You have a hardware issue, not software. Attempting to reinstall Windows is a waste of time. As mentioned above, overheating is a possibility. Try cleaning the dust from the cooling vents by blasting them with compressed air. Then do a hard reset - unplug the power adapter, remove the battery, then press & hold the power button for at least 20 seconds.
