system reboots every 12 minutes

 

Problem 

Running Vista Ultimate and the system reboots every 12 minutes without warning or messages. Does not reboot when using SAFE MODE. Ran the System Files Verifier and the Malware complete scan (30 hours) and nothing turned up. Ran several other independent System Repair programs but nothing was found. The only change I've noticed is that when I click the mouse, the sound might continue clicking rapidly for a second or two. Regardless, the system will reboot in 12 minutes. The system does not reboot when running under the SAFE MODE or SAFE MODE with NETWORKING. The system does not reboot unless a user is logged on. 

 I’ve noticed that the sound function is disabled when using the SAFE modes. I updated all drivers, and ran several memory and cpu tests from the Ulitmate boot disk, no errors found. I viewed many of the Task Schedule logs and the Event logs and haven't located any errors pointing to a problem. Only one log stated that an unexpected shutsdown had occured. Help...
