this is strange to say the least, I have an Xp computer that apparently is rebooting constantly I have check the Mini dump file which was empty I check the Event viewer but apparently when it is a random reboot it is not logged but I did find this 


Event Type: Error
Event Source: WinMgmt
Event Category: None
Event ID: 28
Date: 11/14/2013
Time: 12:34:20 PM
User: N/A
Computer: LMC-H11
WinMgmt could not initialize the core parts.  This could be due to a badly installed version of WinMgmt, WinMgmt repository upgrade failure, insufficient disk space or insufficient memory.
For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.
does anyone have any idea's on what I can do from here, I check the temp of the cpu and it was  43 C which was not hot at all

Let's see if we can stop the restart cycle.


Immediately after pressing the power button start tapping the K8 key.  The Advanced Boot Options should open, click on Disable auto restart on error.


Now when you start the computer you should receive a Stop: error (BSOD), it will look similar to the one in the image below.


At the top of the page you will see ***STOP: and then a hexadecimal code.  Please post this code. 

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
