When i turn my pc on it loads through the normal load up. It goes right into windows lasts about 30 seconds and reboots, showing a very quick blue panel on the left hand side.

We have tried pressing F8 and booting xp from disc but nothing works and it keeps booting and restarting??

Its very confusing, not sure on what is causing this to happen?

Please help!

You may not have tried to enter Safe Mode correctly. You need to enter Safe Mode in order to turn off the automatic re-boot, in order to read the BSOD failure error message, in order to know what might be wrong.

Boot to Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key repeatedly, as soon as the power button is turned on.

Once in Safe Mode, navigate:

My Computer>(right click)"Properties">Advanced>(under "startup & recovery)>"Settings", and un-tick "Automatically Restart", and click "Okay"

Then navigate to My Computer>C:>Properties>Tools>"Error Checking">click "automatically fix errors" and schedule a chkdsk to run on reboot.

Then reboot.

If it gets to desktop, HD errors were the cause of the problem. If it doesn't please post the exact text of the BSOD error here.
