Tried installing Windows 7 again, and it's still a no go. I looked all over the internet and it seems that this continual re-start problem is common and yet there doesn't seem to be a fix for it. Is it possible that this issue is related to the graphics card? I only ask because I installed XP, but once I installed the drivers for the graphics card, it stopped working. When I turned the machine on, it logged into a blue screen and then went black.

I'm going to try to re-install XP since it's the only OS I've been able to install so far, and then I'll look to see if there are updated drivers for the graphics card.

I did not read through the whole thread, so please excuse my ignorance if this has already been suggested.

I had a similar problem with a client's machine.
What I had to do was disable Native SATA Support in the BIOS, which I believe is the equivalent of running the hard drive in IDE mode.

I'll give that a shot and let you know. I'm not that familiar with BIOS, but I did try re-setting it. I went in there and selected an option to load all fail-safe options. For the more savvy, please let me know if this actually resets it. I just assumed that's what it did.

VanillaCena's suggestion is a good one, you'll see options like AHCI or perhaps compatibility mode. Try disabling it and see if it helps.

When you got the blue screen, was the error code something like nvldsomething? I had a similar problem with a client's computer. New video card didn't help, I still don't know for sure but we assumed it was the PCI slot. Later I found out that it was a driver not loading properly, the nvldsomething doesn't copy to the windows32 folder at the time of installation.

I only found one thing that said anything about AHCI, so I changed it to IDE. Then it wouldn't recognize the hard drive, so I changed it back. I'm back trying to install XP again.

The blue screen was only for a few seconds. It wasn't the BSOD. It was actually a little lighter.

HDD problem. Had the same issue on a Pentium 4.

Thanks. I tried a new HDD and it didn't do the trick, so that wasn't it.
