I had the same problem with my pc which lasted for several months,I went through a lot of steps to solve the problem :
-I changed my motherboard ,which resulted in several days of smooth pc operation but the problem returned after awhile
-I reinstalled my xp,again the pc worked well but afterwards the problem returned
-I had the pc set to a lower frequency because I thought my processor and the mobo
could not handle the default settings
-then finally one day the pc could not boot anymore,I brought the pc to the shop where I bought the mobo and they found out that the mobo was dead.The technician removed the mobo and tested it with another unit and it functioned very well but when it was re-installed to my pc ,it did not function so the technician decided to look for the cause of this and he found out that the re-start button of my pc was not functioning well and it was forever on a re-start mode making it impossible for the pc to boot and all the while the re-booting that i was experiencing was caused by this malfunction.
Now my pc is functioning smoothly and I haven't experienced any unnecessary re-boot since the coorection was made.
