could it be cpu temp causing shut down restart

Could be faulty memory. Download memtest click here and create a bootable floppy or CD then boot from it and run the tests for a while.

Has it done Windows Updates yet? One cause of this on some Athlon nForce4 boards was rectified in a later Windows update... Although your board may be different, updates may solve it the same...

However, worrying that you say "ok on third
attemp. .."

Could you clarify this?

Did you do a chkdsk /r before installing XP?
If not you should run one now.

ran chkdsk /r . came straight up volume is clean
on average its about every 8 mins it goes reboot
on updates,at the moment ive left it at the windows opening page touched nothing ill see how long it stays up

ok the system will sit at the start ok does not reboot,when i go updates then it only lasts so long, on my last try message came up not seen
before , not enough space or something like
do you know how to expand, this could be the problem,as soon as i put the pc to work it reboots

Go to System Properties>Advanced>Under "Start up and Recovery" click on "Settings" and under "System Failure" take the tick out of "Automatically Restart" and put a tick in the "Write an Event to the System Log" box.

Try a reboot then an update download.
