what kind of pc is it? I know hewlitt packard has an issue with the service pack and they have a fix for it on thier site that removes the service pack .....restart usually means an error.but instead of the BOD,it restarts.

you can disabe this by right-clicking My computer > Properties > advanced >under startup and recovery click settings > uncheck automatically restart.

but i suggest you try to decipher the problem first. open the case and make sure all fans are working also check out this link and see if it helps

if not post back and will see what else we can do and by then maybe someone else will have another idea

hmmmm.....what model compaq is it? give this a try and let me know how it goes

"Restart your computer while holding down the F8 Key,
You'll access the 'Advanced Options Menu',
Select: Last Known Good Configuration & press Enter."

I am looking for other answers to this problem so check back and let me know how it is going..also if the solution above works you can go to add/remove programs and uninstall sp1 so it doesnt give any more probs

ok if you can get it to go to command prompt you can uninstall the service pack from there here is how hopefully you can get to command prompt while booting

To uninstall a service pack from a command prompt:
Click Start, click Run, type cmd, and then click OK.
Change to the c:\$NtServicePackUninstall$\spuninst folder.
Type Spuninst.exe, and then press ENTER.
Type exit, and then press ENTER.
