    I have a P3 733MHz, 256MB PC100 SDRAM, WinXP Pro SP2.Intel i810e
    chipset, Samsung Puma 80GB ATA, LG CDRW drive.
    I had kept my comp turned on for 8 days at a stretch.
    Now, it reboots even before it enters the OS.
    What may be the problem?
    I have valuable data related to my project reports on the HDD....
    Please help..
    Regards, Amit S

    Well, now, that was totally uncalled for...

    Have you tried booting into safe mode? If you can do that, run your
    anti-virus software and scan the whole C: drive. And run chkdsk /f (start,
    run, cmd, chkdsk /f)

    Try booting with the XP CD, then recovery console and enter fixboot
