Have you flashed the BIOS with either the original factory settings or a recent update? Take careful note of exactly where the computer restarts, either upon Windows start-up or from a cold restart. If the former, then there is no substitute for a reinstall, which is also a good time to make all the settings in Windows just the way you like them. I have reinstalled Windows at least 20 times and always have had changes that I learned from the previous installation. If the computer is restarting before Windows boot, then it is in the BIOS. Reflash from the original or update based upon your needs which can be found in the revision notes for each update. There is only one other suggestion. If per-chance, you have an AMD based machine and have recently tried to install Windows XP SP3, you have been caught in a freakish occurrence. Allegedly, Microsoft has been working, endlessly it now appears, a fix but I would not wait for them. f you can, back up your data and attempt to remove the Service Pack (3). If you cannot remove it, go ahead and reinstall. Pray for a working backup or successful backup attempt. I would suggest both knees.

We cannot save the bios and can't restart

If you can't save the BIOS settings, then either your BIOS is corrupted or the battery supplying power to your BIOS is dead. The battery looks like a large watch battery on your motherboard. Try replacing that and see if it works then. If not you can either take it to a computer shop to have the BIOS flashed or replace the motherboard.

I have intel gvsr motherboard hangs every 3 to 4 hrs

Dont overclock the CPU, and underclock the GPU and see what happens... This should solve it, along with adding a fan or two with a thermostat!
