    Does it reboot or does it give you a message that it's going to reboot in a minute?

    don't just re-format, delete the partition and start from scratch.

    What was the procedure you took to alter your disk file system? If you did it correctly it should not exibit rebooting without warning. To see warning messages you need to grab the install cd and get the minidump tool out. Windows creates it every time there is a crash. Read the docs for how to do this. Also you can set winodws to write a dump file via the system properties section. One of the things I do when I have random reboots is to start disabling devices untill the reooting stops. This is in the event that it reboots when you are just running the basic desktop with no other programs. If you can give us any other clues it would speed up the troubleshooting.
