if you have two strips of ram take one out and try reboot again, this is a good way to see if your ram has become faulty, if not boot from cd and re-install windows could be you have missing or corrupt system files, or another good possibility is a hardware conflict, if you reboot the pc continuosly press f8 until options come up then start in safe mode and go to control panel click system then devices and check to see if there are any yellow circles next to devices this is a sign of conflict or driver not installed properly, also remember that if you have onboard sound chip etc and are not using it make sure it is disabled in the bios ok
