    Hello, This can be cause by hardware or software.  Does it restart when you select safemode?  To enter safemode, restart your computer and keep pressing the F8 key.  You will recognize safemode because the screen will be black and it will say safemode in each corner.  Try doing that and see if computer restarts.  Has there been any new hardware installed in the system?  Any new software?  Most times this kind of problem are caused by drivers, but it is not always the case.

      No there was "nothing" new installed. I tried to enter safe mode, last working good configuration and got some continuous message about the disk drive.

    Maybe it's virus or malware related :(

    Can you boot into safe mode? if yes then try this
    1) right-click on My Computer then click the Properties.
    2) In System Properties window click the Advanced tab then click the Settings button under Startup and Recovery.
    3)  uncheck the Automatically restart check box. Click Ok.4) Reboot if necessary

    then go to windows event viewer
