Question about Intel Motherboard
Very little info for me to go on there, try running a full virus scan with an up to date product and a full antispyware scan with Spybot from
Look in the logs to see what causes the restart with xp:
How to View Event Details loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To view the details of an event, follow these steps: 1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel. Click Performance and Maintenance, then click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Computer Management. Or, open the MMC containing the Event Viewer snap-in. 2. In the console tree, expand Event Viewer, and then click the log that contains the event that you want to view. 3. In the details pane, double-click the event that you want to view.
The Event Properties dialog box containing header information and a description of the event is displayed.
That is taken from the ms knowledge base.
Post what causing the restart if you need further help.

A restarting system is tricky to diagnose. But it's usually can be broken down into two categories.
Software: If any of your device drivers are corrupted or missing this can restart your system. If you get a blue screen with a lot of white writting momentarily before it restarts then there should be an entry in the event viewer in the management console that may provide some insight. Right click on My Computer and go to Manage, you will see even viewer on the left. Skim though it and read any errors. Otherwise the best thing to do to rule out software as your problem is to reformat and reinstall Windows fresh.
Hardware: This can usually be attributed to the power circuitry in your system. If your power supply has been weakened or the power rectifier circuitry on your motherboard isn't functioning properly then this can cause reboots. I recomend removing any extra hardware that is not needed, for example remove any network card, sound cards, usb devices, printers, extra memory, CD drives, then add them back one at a time. You will either determine the faulty device or verify that your problem is either motherboard or power supply related. It's nearly impossible to rule out the power supply or motherboard unless you have a spare known good power supply to test with. You should also examine your motherboard for any bulging or leaking capacitors.
