    What do you mean restarts without rebooting. There is a prompt when the computer is booting up to press any key to boot from cd. Are you doing this? Or are you even seeing this prompt?

Check your BIOS to load the from CD first. Also turn off the Acer logo at start if you can. look for a "Tab to see boot up"

Acer travelmate 3210


Acer Travelmate 3210 is the Series
and in that series your Laptop model is 3212NWXMI

like Acer Aspire 5300 is series and 5320 is the model number like that.

there was no need to update Bios
now in case your laptop is turning on
Please try to start in the Safe mode
and there you shut down your laptop properly and try Restarting in normal mode.
Secondly, If you are well versed with the technology then please
try to reinstall the Windows Xp

and BIOS update is something you should be very careful of.
do not try unless it is MOST required
