SOURCE: booting up
Try to start up with the windows XP CD in the drive, it will give you some options to reinstall or repair XP. If this doesnot work, ensure that your BIOS will startup from CD.

The setting for 'Automatically Restarting; in the event of an error is enabled. You can 'disable' this setting (maybe) in order to begin troubleshooting the problem.
How long do you have at the desktop before it reboots?
Can you do this?
power on the laptop
when you get to the desktop
Right mouse button click the 'My Computer' Icon
Choose properties, Advanced, Startup and recovery tab
In System Failure uncheck the box titled 'automatically reboot'
Click 'OK'. The change requires a reboot.
Power on laptop and keep pressing the F8 function key until you get to the Windows XP startup menu. choose 'Safe mode'. boot to desktop and do the above.
these options only allow you to view the dreaded Blue Screen of Death BSOD which may help you understand what condition is casuing the problem. The path to resolving it may be harder and more difficult than simply reinstalling the operating system(software problem) or it may point to a hardware failure which sucks.
Reinstall the O/S using the supplied os disks from DELL. Install the 'new' O/S to a folder like Windows2, this is called a parallel install and allows you to login to the laptop and access all the data files stored there that you never backed up.

Make sure you don't have any unecessary programs loading up into windows when your laptop boots up. The next time the system randomly reboots check to see if the laptop feels a bit warmer then normal. Could be that your air vents are being blocked by dust. That would cause the air not to flow properly. Take a can of air and blow the vents clear so the air can flow properly and that would take care of the problem.
