Windows and installation disk fails to boot

This issue has just start a couple of days ago were the computer would restart at the point of the boot logo just before the orbs came in, i have tried booting in all safe modes and the computer would restart, tried repair and it restarts before finished loading. I have tried using the os install disk but it also restarts. There is no BSOD. Is there a way to fix this or would i have to replace my motherboard?

Edit: This issue has been fixed, it was a loose card on the motherboard.

1: Remove all external peripherals like printer and then reboot.
2: Open the computer, remove and reseat the CMOS battery and then restart your PC.
3: If there is more than 1 RAM card, remove it and let it run on a single chip.

These are the few things you could try before reaching to a conclusion that the mobo is faulty.

I reset the CMOS and it was confirmed by it stating the date was wrong, windows and cd still failed to boot and non necessary external devices were removed and running on 1 ram card.

If at all possible, replace the battery
