How can I reboot my acer travelmate 2310? it loads as far as the windows xp loading screen then goes off and then turns itself on again and this keeps repeating. I have tried to reboot it using F2 to enter setup bit to no avail. Can anyone help,will I able to fix this myself without taking it to be repaired. Thanks steve

If you tap F8 after pressing the power button you should be given the choice of entering various chioces from there try load last good configuration, or words to that effect and see if that helps. If not go back the choices and try safe mode, from there you can get to system restore and there you can pick a time when your PC was working fine. Another option is if you have an XP disk is to do a repair install: Repair instructions here.

Safe mode etc screen: F8
