My machine is in an endless boot cycle. An error message comes up, but flashes by too quickly to see. I have found out that the osloader.exe program might be corrupted. What does this do? Thanks.

not sure what that does, but either 2k or xp has a feature that reboots if a driver or something is bad. id boot to safe mode and reinstall your vid drivers first. then id try a repair using your 2k cd.

My ethicator machine must've had a built-in moral compromise spectral release phantasmatron! I'm a genius!

The only time I've seen Win2k constantly reboot like that is when it has a registry problem. Does it boot so far, give a blue screen for a few seconds with just a few lines of info before it reboots again?
