Trying to build a system completly done put windows xp but the computer only reboot

Question

I'm trying to build a system. I am completely done and have put Windows XP on it. After installing the software, my system started to reboot by itself and then shut completely down by acting as if the processor was burnt (the power light was on but nothing was running). I swapped processors and the system turned on. After a while it started rebooting again. I believe it might be a ground problem because if you barely tapped the system, it rebooted. Trying to find the cause of the problem and how to diagnose it....please advise...Thanks!!
