XP gets to load, restarts

June 18, 2009 at 21:13:00
Specs: Windows Vista
So my son is playing a mmo and he is playing away when it freezes. so he waits five mins then manually shuts down. then he proceeds to start it back up.

It will make it to the Windows Xp logo and the little loading bar and then restart the computer. it will not load in any safe modes. I have read the others but i still can't figure it out.

If i have to reformat then that is what i must do. but i need to know how i do this. it will not let me go into the bios. it freezes.

Please help

If you can boot into "safe mode with command prompt" type format C:\, which will wipe your drive, you can then proceed to reinstall from an install disk. However if it is freezing in BIOS it could mean a motherboard problem, in which case i would contact the maunfacturer
