You might need to work your way through this MS Knowledge Base Article - How to Troubleshoot Windows Protection Error Messages (http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;q149962).

What happens to you try and boot into Safe Mode? Trying pushing F8 when the machine has finished POST and before Windows starts to load.

the strange thing about this error is that it doesn't have a code that goes with it..
it just says system halt and need restarting

Have a look in the event viewer and look for any errors for the time the computer crashes.
