Error message would be nice to see. No more CAPs.

Uninstall video drivers. Go back to standard VGA drivers. Video drivers can cause problems restarting. Run anti-virus scan to make sure no viruses exist. Uninstall anti-virus software, spam, spyware, firewall, and any other utilities. Run chkdsk (error checking) and defrag on all drives. Empty all temp files.

Don't overclock while running OS or service pack installs. This can cause issues.

I've heard of some people having problems installing SP2 over SP1. Try removing SP1 if it's installed.
