Blue Screen constantly rebooting. Please help

Please help!

I put together a PC with brand new parts and installed Vista Ultimate about
a year ago. Besides for waiting for driver updates at the begining when
vista first came out, I have not had a problem with vista until yesterday.

I kept getting blue screen, it would reboot, I could get it to safe mode,
the Microsoft prompt would come up to check for solutions, but nothing came
of that. I have a Radeon 1600x and I think after one of the restarts it
tried to fix it but it didnt work. And it blue screened and restarted.

I am to the point now where it allows me to select what mode to go into but
once I select safe mode it goes through the command prompts and eventually
just restarts again. I thought it may be the graphics card, I took that out
but I still get the same issue.

Do you think my Hard drive is the problem now? Or is my PC toast?

Thanks Mark,

F8 was what I was looking for.

I didnt get me to a recovery menu(let me select if I want to boot with
floopy, DVD, or hard dreive) but allowed me to access my vista disk DVD to
repair pc. I ran through a couple times and it allowed me to do a system
restore. I was able to get to my desktop(while hooked up to my PC monitor.
So I thought I was in the clear.

I then hooked up to my LCD TV(via HDMI). After I started it up, I got a
blue screen.
After a reboot I was able to get to my desktop in safe mode, and then i did
another system restore for a week from today. And so far so good. I
disabled system restart when the blue screen comes up so I can see what it
says next time.

A prompt came up saying that one of the things I installed caused this whole
problem

So far so good.

Do you think i should install vista's sp1? I have a feeling that is what
caused this whole thing.
