Any messages when the computer restarts? i.e "System has recovered from a serious error", that sort of thing?
You may want to try this:
Shut down your PC (or wait for it to reboot)
Before the Windows XP loading screen appears, press F8 (repeatedly if necessary) until you see a menu. If yuo get the Windows XP logo, you've missed yuor chance.
Select "Disable Automatic Restart..[blah]", press Enter
If you get a blue screen with white text instead of your computer rebooting, post the message here, in particular the number after the word STOP: e.g STOP 0x000000E2
The information should be in the event log, but it doesn't always get put there.
