You can give it a try. Does the event viewer provide anymore details?

Does this happen immediately after installing XP and before installing any other application programs?
Have you checked the Event Logs to see if there is more information?
Do you have the most current drivers for all your devices?

It keeps re-booting.
I'm going to re-install XP again.

I ran across 'parted magic' -- live CD and used it to format the HD, the XP install went fine and was able to get all the other apps installed and up-dated.
I also made him a image backup :-)
