Which OS are you running?  I would try removing all network cards and USB devices as a start.

This may be a power supply problem, or a motherboard problem.  Can you exchange the power supply?

I assume when you say reinitiate you mean reinstall.  It also sounds like your trying to reinstall windows from within windows, but if you have a problem with windows this is not a good idea.  Boot from the CD drive with the windows CD and format then reinstall windows.

I'm going to go ahead and assume that by "reinitiate", you mean "restart". If this is the case, it sounds like some process isn't allowing Windows to completely shut down. You can check Task Manager (Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring this up in Windows) for any processes/applications that may be giving a problem and manually shut them down prior to restarting/rebooting/"reinitiating" Windows. Just to cover all bases, scan for viruses, spywaye/adware/malware using your scanners of choice, run Disk Defrag and ScanDisk (Open My Computer, right click the hard disk icon, select properties, choose the Tools tab, you'll see them there), and uninstall any programs that you don't really use or need. Keep in mind that I'm still a bit unsure of what your problem is and can only offer the most general solution to this problem. If you can offer any additional information about this situation, it would be a great help to pinpoint to the issue.
