Why does my computer keep rebooting?

Question

My computer keeps restarting itself before it allows me into the windows environment. I have tried safe mode, and it gives me the same problem. I erased all partions, recreated one, and reformatted. I reinstalled, and it still gives me the same problem. I even tried erasing everything, and installed a different operating system ( linux ). My computer restarts, half way through this install. I am completely lost. Any help will be much appreciatied.

Thankyou

Ayton

The first thing you might want to check is while you computer is starting press delete and that will take you into the BIOS setup and check to see if your computer is on a timer to turn of every certain amount of minutes If it is change it.

I also suggest checking the power supply voltages They may not be correct.
