Restart virus and desktop load problem

OK I have 2 computers, One has the restart virus (not sure what the technical name is) and one will load to the desktop all the way to the desktop but won't show any icons or toolbars. Ok the first one, it goes through the BIOS and the scan but then it shows the windows xp logo with the loading bar. Once that finishes it shows me a black screen and then it shows me a blue screen with some text on it, probably telling me what the problem is. Problem is, it only displays it for about half a second before it beeps and restarts, it just loops from there. The second one will load everything, all the way to the desktop, it displays the background and the cursors but not the start menu, icons, or toolbars. It wont freeze and it won't show any errors it just stares back at me untill im ready to throw it out the window. But when I moved the hard drive and put in in my other computer, it showed all the " found new hardware wizards" but then it stares at me some more.

If anyone can help me it would be extremely appreciated.

(first computer) The blue screen is the windows "blue screen of death", not a virus......what this means is that either Windows has a problem or there is a physicial problem with the computer.......Boot into safe mode by hitting f8 while booting, does it work there?

(second computer) Boot into safe mode by hitting f8 while booting, if you can get the computer to do anything in safe mode, post a highjackthis log into the cybersafety forum
