Default continuous reboot

I am a technology teacher in an elementary school. One of my computer stations will not stop rebooting.
System: Windows 2000

Any suggestions?

I'd say try booting into safe mode, then check for viruses.

How far does it get (booting up) before it starts to reboot again?

does it give you an error message? for example "C:\Windows\something.dll has become corrupt, please reinstall a copy of the file"

My IT manager at the school has swapped out the power supply. This seemed to work for now. I want to thank you for all of your responses.

I will keep coming back for my own learning and of course to ask questions that I have no answer for.
