I have lately formatted and installed a clean version of windows XP.

After using for couple of days without any issues, PC started to restart automatically.

This is what happens:
PC works for few minutes -> restarts. While restarting, it restarts again and again before it hangs and stops to restart with PC lights still on.

So far what i have done:
disabled Automatically restart option - still restarts.
disabled all new hardware -> still restarts
RAM is ok. Processor FAN is not working but another Fan in the CPU is working.

Also when it restarts, i can see in the bios then Kernal Temp is 0%

What can be the issue
