Hi all
When I turn my PC on it goes through Bios and boot up absolutley fine. the problem starts after XP logs on. After I log on put my password in after around 1-5 mins the pc restarts itself. This is really frustrating especially when you work on a database and it does not save! then after restart the whole process starts again. I have checked the fan it is housed correctly. Please help

Go to the system properties, advanced startup & recovery. Uncheck automatic restart.

Yes no problem this is not hard to fix seen as you can log on and use start up I have a cd that can been sent by email or post which ever you prefer and this cd fixes pc problems and performace issues it sounds like someone has either been on your computer and made a batch file or .vbs file that makes your computer restart after 5 mins this is a common file else you have larg regedit problems which can be fixed by reg machanic which i can also send to you by email or on cd by post let us know if you are intested pm and i will send them else if you have a big knolege of regedit and msconfig i will tell you how to fix it though these if steps one and two fail reg machanic or cd files sent

Is the CD you will send via mail FREE? Your post is difficult to read because you don't follow the punctuation and capitalization rules for good english.

Try this: Boot up to the point where you normally login, but don't login. Just let it sit undisturbed and see if it reboots after the 1-5 minutes.
If it does, it could be an overheating problem.

guapo's suggestion is a good place to start.

Another tip is to check the event viewer for event logs. I suggest doing this from safe mode, as this will also help you know if the issue is hardware or software related.

If the machine does not shutdown when in safe mode, it might be driver related. At any rate, you didn't indicate when & if this problem just started out nowhere or if you had installed anything prior to the issue. If it just started out of nowhere, system restore may help revert your system to a good state provided it isn't a hardware or overheating issue.
