If it's XP then right-click My Computer and choose Properties. On the Advanced tab click the Settings button under 'Startup and Recovery' then untick 'Automatically Restart'. Now you should hopefully get an error message instead of a restart which may give a clue as to the culprit.

It could be many things including overheating, try Eric10s suggestion to see if that can tell you what it is.
