>Ok, if anyone knows or thinks they know what's wrong with this computer, please describe it as if you were talking to your 80 year old grandmother. I'm kind of new to this.
>The computer is an HP Pavilion laptop running windows xp sp2.
>When I turn on the computer, it brings up a black and white menu screen telling me that windows could not start in normal mode, and asking if I want to start in safe more or from the last working settings. Every time I pick one of these options, windows starts to star, and then the computer restarts.
>I made a UBCD and have figured out how to use it (more or less) with the computer. I was thinking that perhaps I have a virus, so I've tried the various virus scanners that come on the UBCD. Some of them find nothing, but 2 of them start to scan, and then restart the computer in the middle of the scan.
>Does anyone know what is going on? Is this a virus, or maybe something else? If anyone knows, I would very much appreciate some help.
>(PS... I don't really know what any of the other stuff on the UBCD is, so perhaps there's something else I could use besides the virus scanners to figure out the problem?)

Well if the pc can't run long even with the live cd / scan perhaps you
have a heat problem.
Open the pc power it up and make sure all the fans are running.
There is one on the power supply..one ah you get the picture just make
sure they are all spinning.
Take it from there.
