When you say it won't restart, are you getting any error messages?  Does 
the Windows XP logo come up at all?

Do you get a blue screen with something like "INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE" 
written on it.

You might also want to try pressing the F8 key at boot up (or keep 
pressing it) and if a boot menu appears, look for an option to start in 
Safe Mode.

What make is the PC? (or is it one you've put together yourself?)
