Default Repeat Reboot

My Dad's computer has been running fine lately, and about 15 minutes ago he came to me saying he hit the restart button on his tower and now all of the sudden the computer won't stop restarting. It shows the initial black screen listing the mobo model and CPU ID and after that it restarts to the same screen and etc. The restart button isn't jammed, i can't get into the BIOS let alone flash it incase it became corrupted. Any ideas on what I should do?

P.S.
Mobo- Gigabyte GA-EP45T-UD3LR
2 HDDs Seagate Barracudas
GeForce 260 GTX
OCZ 500W PSU
RAM- DDR3 G. Skill 4GB

Default Re: Repeat Reboot

Reset the Bios via the jumper or pull the battery out for a minute or two.
