Computer won't start

My Gateway computer goes to the screen windows 2000 professional and then automatically shuts down and restarts. It continues in this loop. Please help.

first off, were you using updated antivirus software?
have you tried booting into safe mode?
do you have the windows 2000 disk?

I think antivirus is updated. Tried safemode but it would'nt allow it to start up. We have windows 2000 disk.

As you have the disk, put it in, and try to reformat the computer. It will wipe out everything on the hard drive if it does, but it MAY allow it work again like it did from the factory, IF it is a bug causing the problem.
If that does not work, then it is my guess it is a hardware problem. Is the computer still under warranty by any chance?
