Vista Home Premium Toshiba Satellite keeps rebooting even after Repair Disc has ok'd it

Toshiba satellite A300 with Vista Home Premium

Have looked at the forum and the overheating option might be the cause- except this happens on cold startup too.

The battery held no charge originally and I have replaced this.

Drivers are all up to date

I used the bootable repair disc and it ran chkdsk and originally corrected some errors. Now it gets as far as a 'Configuring Updates - stage 3 of 3 0% complete. Do not turn off your computer-then restarts repeatedly. Any ideas?

Many Thanks

Looks like an update killed it boot disk revived and update is reinstalling and killing it again. see this thread

Thanks Fruitbat

Used the repair disk to do a system restore- first one corrupt 2nd ok - so I am out of that loop!

The downloadable windows standalone updater (on the link on the thread - hangs...)

So far so good though - so many thanks!
