Start at the begining, by this check physical hardware, loose ram chips, ide conenctions, incorrectly seated heatsink on processor, and if the problem persists remove all peripherals until your left wih only the abilatiy to see whats on the screen and use a keyboard and mouse.

If all else fails try removing the hard drive and power up the computer and see if it still restarts. Hope this helps you start off finding the solution.

is the fan spinning on the processor heat sink?
I would think it's ram or processer, but could be power supply. I would look for an identical machine in your office or wherever and swap parts. Also, if you follow standard procedures for troubleshooting, pull all the pci cards, use the least amount of ram possible to boot with (find out if your pc requires two stick to run or only one), remove printers.

My computer kept rebooting itself and scanning the disk in XP. I had to unplug the computer and restart it to get into the safe mode. It would not perform a system restore. I went into the files and physically removed all recently created files and programs in safe mode. I got the computer to the point where it would reboot once and scan the disk and then successfully boot into the operating system. I got the computer to stop rebooting and scanning the disk after using the system recovery disks. You may want to try these things if nothing appears wrong with the hardware.
