Default comp rebooting...need help

so as some of you know i got my $5 xp pro, when i installed it it went through with a breeze. the only problem is that upon start up, most of the time, when i get to the desktop while everything is loading i get a click and it reboots. it will do this about 4 or so times then finally boot. now do you guys think this could be a hardware problem because of the click or xp isnt stable. or could it be the latest video drivers? should i uninstall the latest drivers and use the ones on the driver disk? Im thinking the latter but I guess we'll just have to see
