computer keeps restarting

hp/ compaq 6710b laptop. It keeps restarting over and over. I ran start up and memory check. Installed memory says 3072 MB. Failed -replace memory module. I changed out the ram but still says same thing. Tried to boot from CD but it still restarts over and over. Any suggestions? It is running xp pro. Thanks

Re: computer keeps restarting

hard drive said it passed. Booted from CD and tried to repair windows. Said setup can not continue Setup did not find any hard disk drives installed in your computer.
