With so many possibilities, start with a simple test:
Shut down and after 30 seconds switch on again and keep tapping F8
When the screen shows alternatives listed in white on black, use up/down arrows to select

"Start using last good configuration"
Press <Enter> and cross your fingers!

Tap F8 on startup again, select Safe Mode with Networking.

Assuming it loads up ok, download bluescreeview (click here) and open it.

See if it brings any new info to light. Post back the results if there is anything you don't understand.

Can you recall any change you made or anything at all unusual happening just before the reboot looping problem?
