I downloaded the Windows 8 Consumer Preview and everything seemed to load fine, except when I try and sign on it says "Welcome" and then restarts itself back to the sign on.

Did you try reinstalling it? – surfasb Mar 3 '12 at 23:21

Are you in the same hardware conditions you were when you installed Windows 8 Consumer Preview on your PC? I got a similar problem when try to boot up Windows 8 with new hardware devices attached. Removing them, then reboot and let Windows 8 detect the devices with plug & play worked.
