Does it allow you to go into safe mode or does it just cycle while trying that also?

At this point I personally would pop in a windows disc and completely reformat your computer. If you had a lot of stuff that you needed to backup you could always make a new partition on the hard drive using a windows disc, install windows to that new partition, and then see if you can access your data on the old partition. If that doesn't work then best bet would be to just do a complete format and start windows from scratch. Wait a little bit to do all of that though and see if anyone else here has any input. Some of the veterans here will hopefully have some more things for you to try.

As it's booting, press F8 to give you more options. What we want is "Disable automatic restart on system failure. This way instead of cycle booting, we can get an error that will help us find the cause of what's going on. I wouldn't go with a reformat yet. To drastic for something that could easily be RAM.

Yes I would try a repair with the cd aswell then if you get it to boot run a spyware scan.
