That usually indicates a scratched or damaged CD
it gets to expanding files in vista or 34 minutes remaining (sometimes 25!) in XP and restarts itself every time.

I can't believe its the CD's because I have tried XP, Vista and now Windows 7 Discs. They all fail. Also it restarts during a normal chkdsk.
In the Bios. Under standard cmos settings only the hard drive is listed.

Thanks for your mesaage.
I will check the voltages tonight.
During setup of xp, vista or windows 7 it restarts without notice (as it did during chkdsk). In XP I was getting to 34 minutes remaining (although I once got to 25 mins), installing devices. However I just tried it again this morning after resetting the cmos and it got to the first planned restart and then said 'There is an error with your Operating Sytem' after it asked if I wanted to boot from cd.
I have replaced the ide and sata cables and check they are fully inserted, that made no difference.
I think I have a spare backup battery so will replace this later and see if I have any more luck, but the time and date were correct in the bios before resetting.
Thanks for your help.
