Constant restart

I have a probelm with a restarting Windows.  Safe mode will work, but normal startup thorws it on a loop after the logo screen.  I'm looking at the system logs and I see X Erros, one saying that The Following boot-start or system-start drivers failed to load:
AMDk8- I applied some updates for the mobo, but with no luck changing the situation.  
Fips- No idea what it might be.
The issue started around SP3 being installed, unstalling SP3 did not bring it back.  Any suggestions?

so im guessing you uninstalled sp3 through safe mode?  

try to download and install all of the necessary drivers for your motherboard and hardware and see if it fixes the problem.

In Safe Mode, open MSCONFIG. On the Startup tab, select Disable All. Reboot. If the system comes back up in Normal Mode after that, go back into MSCONFIG and re-enable one item at a time until you get to a failure point. That'll be your culprit. If still no go. in MSCONFIG, on the General tab, select Diagnostic Startup. Again, if the system comes up fine in Normal Mode after that, something's starting that's causing you problems and it'll be a matter of trial and error to find out which device, service, etc., it might be.

For some odd reason safe mode will not boot anymore, agp440.sys is the file it stops at, any other suggestions?  
(I've ran RAM and HD tests, all came back passed)

AGP440.SYS sounds like a video card driver. Does the system have both onboard video *and* an AGP video card? If so, has the onboard video been disabled?
