Unexpected Restart Happens But Restart Fails

[ Edited ]

Please help!
I started having unexpected restarts a few weeks back. Now the problem is worse. This is now the second time where it reboots, but it doesn't complete the process. It reboots while it is rebooting! I got it to safe mode to check the settings for system failure, and it restarted again. All this is happening after I told Windows NOT to restart with a system failure. The only thing that has been able to get me back to normal for a few days is a System Restore initiated when I enter Safe Mode. Is this a Windows issue or could I have a hardware problem?
Here are my specs
Toshiba Satellite R25
2GB Ram
100GB Hard Drive
Windows XP Tablet
Thanks in advance.

Spontaneous restarts are often due to memory failures. Check it out.
