My Compaq laptop starts booting then shuts of

September 15, 2010 at 14:11:35
Specs: Windows XP
When I turn the laptop on it states that it was shut down incorrectly or new hardware was added(neither of these things occured). It then starts to beboot the windows and shuts down quickly. It automatically trys to restart in about 3 seconds. Repeats over and over until I shut it off. I have unplugged it and let it set overnight and cleaned the vents etc.
Please help

Tap F8 whilst booting and select Safe Mode from the list. It might take a while to arrive and the screen will be poor quality with large icons. If it boots from there then there is a chance you will be able to diagnose and correct the problem - possibly a driver issue which will show in Device Manager.
