1)What type of computer, how old, have you added hardware or software recently, etc.,
2) to pin point the error the next time it occurs could you do the follow tweek:
I do this on all XP computers I work on. An error message can give me a valuable clue(and it's hard to jolt XP out of an endless booting loop).
Turn off auto restart
Control Panel/System/Advanced/Startup and recovery
uncheck auto restart.

Good luck and please post back

Also, Prescotts can get very hot and your system might be shutting off automatically to protect the processor from burning down.

This may sound silly but have you checked that your USB, firewire ports aren't physically broken(the little plastic pieces) as they have been known to restart systems due to shorts, also you might want to check the traces on your motherboard to see that they are not damaged.
One more thing try setting your ram clock speed in the bios to a lower setting or auto and see if that helps.
