Angry Random restars

Hi, recently i had some problems with BIOS settings(i changed to "Top performance" but for some reason it was not responding after the restart...so i removed the CMOS battery to clean BIOS) since then my comp restarts randomly(not many times, 2/week).Is it bios or something wrong with registry? i also chack my CPU temp and is fine, and event log only show a "SERVICE CONTROL MANAGER ERROR"..ANY HELP?
(I am using windows XP SP2)

Set your BIOS back to default settings

Right click My computer>>properties>>advanced>>Settings

Uncheck Automatic Restart.

Instead of restarting next time, It will just blue screen. Record that error and post
