welcome to geekstogo,
in order to know why it is restarting it is best to turn off auto restart, hopefully a BSOD message will appear and we can then address the problem, anyways, here is my canned about it.

an error message(bsod) tells one what the error is, whereas auto reboot doesn't,
therefore it's best to turn off auto reboot

turn off auto reboot:

runbox command
- press keyboard buttons: winkey + r button
- paste this in slot: sysdm.cpl @0,3
- press: enter
- find in blue: startup and recovery
( just above the line: system startup, system failure, and debugging infomation)
- click button: settings
- unclick box: automatically restart

once done
the error message can be understood here

I can't get to the point where I can do all that. The OS just keeps rebooting.

you say that the computer posts and therefore I imagined that you have enough time to turn off the auto reboot and enough time to read the error message given in it place, it itself does not mend the computer but I tells everyone here the nature of you restart problem. if however your computer restart straight after post then agreed that it is impossible to do and sorry that I missread things here
