Subject: Dell d430 laptop power issue: the pc operates fine on battery power. However, when I use AC power, the pc goes into an auto reboot loop and will continue doing so indefinitely. running win XP sp3. I also sometimes experience an auto reboot when addining a USB device.

Is this a hardware or software problem? how can I diagnose? I have run all the diagnostics that came with the dell d430, and they all say that everything is running fine.

I am new to this, so my apologies in advance as I have probably not anticipated some of the information that will be needed.

Your operating system most likely corrupted, and can be repaired using the instructions posted in this forum, sixth post from the top.
I think that if you do the repair, the problem will stop.
