It's possible the power supply can be the problem or even the motherboard.

When a computer starts rebooting itself it is almost always caused by a hardware problem Turn it off now! Inspect for cables that have fallen in the CPU fan, loose cables, and screws, etc under the motherboard Reseat the memory and expansion boards if the problem persists Pull all expansion boards except video Uninstall the tape drive See our motherboard FAQ at for more info
