This actually could be one or more of many problems. Hardware or software.

Try the hardware things first:
If it is restarting on it's own it could be just a simple video card or a ram stick going bad. Vacuum out the insides, Remove the Video card and reinstall it, If you have two RAM sticks - pull one and try a restart,You may have a bad hard drive, as a last resort pull your cpu heatsink/fan to make sure there is paste on the back of it. If your capacitors are swollen (the barrel shaped metal things on the motherboard) and the sides are split, your motherboard is gone. After all of these things, try a different power supply it could be the problem.

Then on to the software things:

Windows could have been damaged by a virus or power surge. If you want to salvage the data from you hard drive. Buy a new hard drive - remove the existing hard drive and install Windows on the new drive. Then install the old hard drive in the case, change the jumper from "master" to "slave". You should then have access to your data.
