hello, the pc repeatedly keeps booting up. A blue screen appears very quickly and says something about an error ati2dvag,loop, hard ware device and other stuff but it only stays on for about 4 seconds and then goes to start up settings and then it all repeats until you force it to shut down.Using xp windows home. Any suggestions thank you

hello, thankyou for your suggestions and links. When i went in to up date the drivers it was already set as the one suggested- pci to pci.I swapped to the other type and rebooted and then reverted back to as it was and up to now after 3 starts it has continued to work ok.Thank you for your support
