BUT, only when there's a CD in the DVD multi drive! Read earlier posts and it was mentioned once but with no further explanation. BIOS is set for HD0 as first boot. Be very grateful, again , for any help

Try setting bios to look at floppy drive first.

set your BIOS settings to 1st boot floppy 2nd boot HD0 3rd boot cd-rom....T

Is there an error message on the screen before rebooting? If not then disable 'auto restart'.....right click My Computer select Properties/Advanced/Startup and Recovery/Settings and deselect 'automatically restart'. Post any error messages here.

thanks very much for advice. I have set the boot sequence as advised and the rebooting has not occured so far. There were no error messages but, there was one when XP did fire up( after I removed the CD) . It stated that Windows has recovered from a serious error......I didn't understand the details, but if the fault is directly related to the boot sequence then this should solve it.Why does it do this, tho? I have clean - installed XP on 5 PCs to date and this only happened twice- the first time I re-installed Win2000!Perhaps on the others, I did reset the Boot sequence to floppy first.
Thank you, again
