    Ok I have a tower with all it's guts and whatnot.
    But it gets to the windows loading screen and restarts & just repeats this process.
    Anyone know why?
    Thanks

    Sounds like Windows system files are corrupt.

    What did you recently do? This doesn't just happen unless the hard drive is failling.

    To fix it: Put your Windows CD in and run the system files Recovery. (Boot to CD)

    What you can try doing, is booting from a linux live CD. I'd recommend ubuntu, don't install it, boot from it. If that works then it's not a hardware problem, and also you should have access to your files, that way you can make a backup if you need to reformat and reinstall windows.

    You need the same version of Windows, burned on a disc in your case I guess, that the computer was using. Just boot from disc and run the recovery, and it will fix any corrupt system files.
