just wondering if anyone can help,my mates computer keeps rebooting every 10 second.when he starts his computer it goes for alittle while then starts to reboot

If the computer starts ok from cold and reboots when its been on for a while get him to check all the fans are working as overheating can be the cause.

as totally-braindead says, get your friend to check the fans. Can he hear it spinning when pc starts up?

also is he getting any beeps at start up? if so how many?

he should only have one beep. it may be a memory problem. Tell him to turn the computer of at the wall socket after shutting down then to remove memory sticks and refit them, the contacts may be tarnished

Which motherboard?

Right according to your other thread, It points to Graphics problem, or Drivers programs loaded at Boot. This can be gone through with MSCONFIG program in the Run box. a Slow job but one worth doing, like removing ticks in MSCONFIG this only disables programs starting at boot and they can be put back
