Whenever I boot up my Presario it does things in this order:
Starts making the fan noise
Displays the red Compaq logo
The Compaq logo gets weirdly distorted
It reboots and does it all over again!
I can't get into the BIOS or any other preferences, and I can't get to the Control Panel either. When I try to put in a recovery cd, it spits it back out and goes nuts again. Sometimes, if I leave it alone for a while (about 45 minutes- 3 hours) it lasts longer when booting and can actually get to Windows XP. Then, after about 10 minutes it reboots and goes nuts all over again. Here are my system specs:
AMD Athlon XP Processor 2000+ operating at 1.67GHz
2x 60GB Ultra DMA Hard Drive
256MB DDR SDRAM Memory
Integrated ProSavageDDR KM266 graphics with 32MB shared video memory
Windows XP Home Edition
I know that the CMOS battery, the RAM stick, and the hard drive are OK.
What is going on with my Presario???
