Answers :

Possibly it has a corrupt windows, has lost the boot sector to the hard drive or cannot recognize the drive properly.

Usually if that happens the splash screen will show and it will simply reboot. It also depends which version of windows you are using - if it is 98 or ME that will happen, if it is 2000 or XP it will reboot on error if that is checked off in the Control Panel/System/ Advanced/ Startup & Recovery options. To change this press F8 on powerup to start in safe mode and when it loads uncheck the box "reboot on error" in your system settings.

To determine if the PC recognizes the hard drive go to bios settings and it should list the drive it has found under IDE settings - if no drive is listed then the drive is bad. At that point you might check the cabling and jumper settings on the drive so it is set as a Master drive on the end connector of the cable going to Primary IDE on the board. Also ensure the striped side of the cable is plugged in next to the 4 wire power cable - a reversed cable will also cause a drive not to be detected. If windows or the drive is corrupt either re-installing windows or re-formatting the drive and re-installing windows may fix the problem.
It might be due to Memory problem ..so try to replace the RAM ..
