All of the sudden my computer started rebooting itself. It's doing it non stop. Even in safemode. I can't keep it up long enough to see what's going on. Anyone know what theis might be?

Hi smartsites, welcome to BC!

Try this:
When the computer starts, start pressing the F8 key (as if you were going to enter safe mode)
Instead of safe mode, select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure"

I suspect that your computer is BSODing and is set to automatically reboot on such errors. Once (if) you get the Blue Screen of Death, copy down all the info and post back here.

This type of rebooting behaviour is often caused by your computer overheating. I would recommend that you open your computer case and make sure all the fans are spinning okay and that there isn't an excessive amount of dust in there that would impede air flow. See the following Bleeping Computer tutorial for guidance on cleaning inside your computer.
