Turn off "auto start on system failure" and you will be able to read
the BSOD message ( if there is one). That might help you find out why
it is restarting.

Right click My Computer. Choose advanced tab, third box down is
Startup and recovery. Click settings. In the middle of the dialog box
is "system failure" uncheck "automatically restart"
