It depends on where the restart occurs - if it happens after the Windows banner screen, it's probably a corrupt Windows driver and a repair install should fix it.

If it occurs before the Windows banner, it could be bad RAM, bad motherboard, or bad power supply.  To further isolate it, you would need to swap the parts in question.  Leave the motherboard for last.

Get a copy of the UBCD and use memtest86+ to test the RAM. Also use the HD manufacturer's utility to test the disk, also on that CD.

Enter the following commands:
