solution for computer restarting continuously

There are some setting in Windows XP that allows your computer to restart after an error occurs in your system. I suggest that if you turn off that option so it may resolve your automatic restart problem.
It includes a several steps as follows:

Click on the Start button after that open Control Panel
Click on Performance and Maintenance
Click on System
Click on the Advanced Tab
Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section

And then Uncheck Automatically Restart in the System failure section
Using the above setting it may prevent the system from restarting, but it can also mask the true problem.

It might be virus problem

By seeing your problem, you are saying that you have used a pen drive before this problem started, you have copied some data, have a look that what has recently changed on your system. If you have installed a new hardware or software, remove the latest hardware and software and see if the problem of restart persists or not. Sometimes installing or downloading a latest driver software will fix hardware incompatibility problems that cause restarts.

Re: when i start my computer it restarts continuously

I have received many problems from most of the people complaining that their computer restarts continuously. It seems like that the computer restarts without error or reason, but it is not so, every-time your computer restarts, there must be some reason that you might not have noticed.
So i am relpying you most of the reasons and their possible solutions to sole your computer restart problem.

Computer restarts due to overheating
Computer restarts due to faulty RAM
Computer restarts due to faulty Hard-disk
Computer restarts due to overheating up of hard-disk
Computer restarts on attaching some external USB device
Computer restarts due to other hardware problem
Some software causing operating system crash causes computer restart

So i suggest you to refer all this reasons which creates restarting problem

Re: when i start my computer it restarts continuously

First of all check your system is virus free and your antivirus is up to date
If your system is not infected with a virus then restart the computer and enter Safe Mode, press F8 while the computer is loading and then wait a few minutes. If the computer doesn't restart in Safe Mode, then your computer might be having a software problem if its not then its a hardware problem.
