1) do not let this cycling continue as it could destroy the master boot block making the system completely useless.
2) can you get the system to boot in safe mode? Change the recovery to not reboot automatically.
3) did you add any devices?
4) can you get into the bios and see whether there is a section there that reports temperature and power supply voltage?  Do you see there whether the Power supply provides enough juice? You can also change the halt on all errors to see whether there is something wrong with the hardware.
5) you could have a bad supply, memory. memtest http://www.memtest86.com/ can check the memory provided the system can stay up for the test.

did you try to Press F8 to Enter to the Safe Mode
or Using ERD 2005 to Check your Windows
or Trying to Enter with CD windows to check using Recovery Console
or Using Hirens CD ..it's utility contain tools to check your Hardware ..

If you pc keeps rebooting then you've been wormed
this error is a symptom of highly contagious worm.

Try what zuhairGmaty said in the first line of his comment
Turn on you computer and hold down the key F8 and wait
then choose the Save Mode option, if you bypass everything...
The fisrt thing to do will be checking in startup process in windows
Also check in Control Panel >> Administrative Tools >> Services

Turn off and delete everything that you see unknown
