have you check for virus? bcause there is a virus that can make your systems to always reboot (mydoom) can be yah problem or what you will do if you dont want to change the os... try installing firewall (sygate) and filter things going in and out of the system... you may see that some files are infected with virus or attack from other ends (host) making yah systems to reboot, eg. lssass.exe or dll files are infected with malwares or spywares... or try download spyware and malware removal tool from or search the net for more information on those...

Most likely problem is a bad driver or incorrectly loaded driver. The system is crashing to a BSOD (blue screen of death) but due to the default recovery option in XP it just automatically reboots. You will need to go into the properties for My Computer (right-click menu option) and change the Start Up and Recovery options to not auto reboot. This will reveal the BSOD and will give a better idea what the problem may be.

There may be power supply problems, bad drivers, or even a virus as suggested. A clean install of XP may eliminate the virus, but if it was not patched before it hit the network, a virus may have been re-installed (nasty little buggers).

Can you boot into safe mode? If it does not constantly reboot I would scan for a virus at that point, patch it (from a cd) and then restart and see if it was fixed.

If it is none of the above it maybe hardware related, CPU, Memory, MB, and Power Supply would be where to check.
