Question Rebooting PC

At first I thought this was a software issue until I replaced the hard drive, so here it goes. I'm using a Dell Optiplex 745. When I turn on the computer it prompts me to start windows normally, last known configuration, safe mode, etc. No matter which option I choose, the machine just reboots and returns to the same menu. At first I thought it was a mere image issue or a bad boot sector, but I replaced the hard drive with one from an identical machine and came up with the same results. Also, I updated the BIOS via floppy in hopes that might fix the iisue but still the same results. Any suggestions? Thanks
