    Is my computer dead?

    So this afternoon I restarted my computer to get a new keyboard to work. After I restarted it starts nup, then goes to the screen where you slect if ylou want to start up in safe mode or standard. If you go to startdard, it just restarts again, and repeats the same thing
    If you go to safe mode then its normal safemode. I have windows xp
    Is my computer dead? Any idea on what to do?
    I did a system restore on safe mode but that didn't do anything
    Help!!

    hhhmmmm, it may have done that as a precaution or a saftey issue, such as it may have detected a virus or some sort of spyware, my computers have done that several times before, the most recent being is the 'blue screen of death' that I just had and lost everything....

    I tried the old keyboard, yes.
    Well i was able to get on my old comp and backup only files i really needed for my production company, but i lost everything else this morning. so the computer is literally "dead".
    I took out the graphics card and firewire, put it on this new one we swapped out from the attic and everythings good.
    I can't belive i didnt do this earlyer...we have had this comp im on for 6 years now and haven't used it! And its great! Windows XP and all
    I'm such an idiot sometimes...lol
