I have a Desktop PC (Hcl Ezeebee, 512 MB Ram, 80 GB Sata HDD, Intel Dual Core Processor,) with Windows XP operating system. Sometimes when i start my PC, it reboots itself just before windows desktop shows up. It reboots itself sometimes up to 5 times in succession. What makes my computer to reboot itself multiple times? Is it due to somekind of virus? I have superantispyware and spyware doctor installed. How can i get rid of this problem? Thanks

May be your computer is attacked by a virus or your power supply is under standard voltage. If that is no problem in your computer, you can check your cable data.

Try creating another user account and see it. There might be many problems for that cause. I think there is an option called PME event in the bios settings, if that is enabled sometimes the computer will restart (a friend of mine working in assembling department in a showroom said me) If both the above doesn't work then should be some sort of virus so you need to format atleast the drive that has OS in it.
