computer stalls and restarts

By stv.stewart ·
We just put together a new p4 with xp on the old hard drive. Has ddr memory. The computer reboots when turned off. It does it constantly. The only way to shut it down is to set it to hibernate. It also stalls all the time for a long time. Several seconds go by before it does anything. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Like the M'Board {Brand & model} being used the type of DDR RAM {brand/size and number of sticks involved} Type of CPU as there are numerous P4's currently available and version of XP, as well as maker & size of existing HDD and other input devices like any Optical drives CD/DVD players recorders.

Also it would be better to post this in the Q & A section as you'll get an auto generated response every time someone answers and most likely someone in your time zone who will be able to offer help in a shorter time frame.
