Are you Overclocking??

Post your Specs, and your Power Supply.

^ If you don't know your power supply's wattage, then it should be printed either in any manuals which came with the computer (if it was bought pre-built) and if not there then printed on the actual power supply. You'll have to open your computer up to read it if it isn't on a manual.

Also keep in mind that XP reboots automatically instead of displaying bluescreens. I think you can turn this option off somehow, maybe you should try that to make sure that it is not a software-problem.

Start > Settings > Control Panel > System

Go into the "Advanced" tab and click the Settings button under "Startup and Recovery." Uncheck the option that says "Automatically restart" in the "System failure" group box. Hit OK and dismiss any warnings. Windows will want you to reboot; you can do it now or at some future point.

Do that, and you'll get to see BSODs ans they're thrown. Very helpful for diagnosing problems.

If you don't know that your overclocking, you're almost certianly not. A 300W power supply isn't too great, but it should be fast enough to power your computer.

Tell us, has there recently been any new hardware installed inside the PC?
