check power settings in control panel. Sounds like you are set to "sleep" after x amount of time. Check your bios power settings also.

could be a bad stick of ram which can be tested by making a cd of memtest86,
or windows operating system has a corrupt startup file causing the computer to begin to load windows, then restart again. Usually doing the 2nd "repair" option during the xp install process will fix this, but its difficult if you do not have the cd or are a novice user.
