I suspect a memory issue: Check http://www.memtest86.com/ and download the cdrom bootdisk:

Another issue could be an overclocked cpu.

Overclocked CPU normally won't get that far, and memory is a possibility as Windows starts using the full memory range at about this stage in the process.

There are also a few viruses out there that cause this behavious.

Try booting into safe mode (F5 or F8) during boot up. If that work, then you need to look for faulty drivers and/or virus.

Check output voltage from Power Supply, classic symptoms of PS failure is spontaneous rebooting. Check voltage thruout the boot process to see if there is a fluctuation..I hope this helps.......Booda2us

this is because of the smallmain  memory size . and small  swap device size.

this may also because of heat  and virus problem.
