See if you can get into Windows Safe-Mode, to correct the problem.

I have exactly the same problem!!!! Nothing works... not safe mode, not "find last good configuration"... NOW WHAT????
I have a Sony desktop with Windows XP on it.
Does it help if I say that first it kept saying: "Doesn't have a disk in A:" ? (that would be my floppy)

It may be a fatal error that is causing the computer to restart. Dll problem can occur when removing programs. You can maybe stop the restart problem by changing your system features to restrict automatic startup when your computer's having a problem after that check out the event viewer for the cause. Here is how:

Use System Failure Settings to Stop Automatic Restarts.

1. Click Start and Open the Control Panel
2. Go to System and Maintenance, Click on System.
3. Select Advanced System Settings and choose Advance tab.
4. Under Startup and Recovery, click on Settings.
5. Under System failure uncheck Automatically restart.
Hope this helps!

Other possibilities can be that:

-Your CPU and/or motherboard is overhating. Check CMOS in the Hardware Monitor and it's above 80F then there's your problem.

-Your power supply may be bad

I tried "response 3" 's idea... actually I just wanted to, because unfortunately my computer doesn't stay on long enough to get into Start.... and in Safe Mode the monitor doesn't get power.... ANY IDEA?????
