Windows XP, by default, is set to restart when a `stop error' occurs. In earlier Windows versions, it would display a blue screen displaying the error which has caused the problem. In XP, this screen will appear and immediately restart the computer.
To switch off this `auto restart' option, please do the following: Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties. On the Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Click to clear the Automatically restart check box under System failure, and then click OK.
Now this would not actually solve your problem, but you will at least get the blue screen which will give you some hint on what is causing the problem.
Most probably it could be an ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) related problem. You will have to update your BIOS to the latest. Microsoft has provided a solution to solve this problem. Please refer to the URL:
