I was installing MS updates and my system went down and began looping in startup. I have tried F8, safe mode s/u, safe mode w/networking etc. No luck. It keeps looping. Help! Thanks for any assistance!

Hi and welcome to TSG :)

If you have you original XP installation cd :

Boot from the installation CD, and when given the option, select Install, let setup scan for (and discover) a previous installation of XP. You are then given the option to either install a fresh copy or repair, select repair.

You may need to alter the bios boot sequence if the cd isn't recognised.

Further info here. Scroll down and select "How to Run a Repair Install"

Your data should be ok but critical updates and SP2 will need to be installed.

Also be aware that your system, once re-installed, will be vulnerable to certain viruses. Read the link provided carefully.
