Windows 10: Windows 10 restarts every 5 minutes

    Windows 10 restarts every 5 minutes

    Currently using a 2007 Alienware went from windows vista to windows 10 32bit and change the processor core 2 duo 2.33ghz to core 2 extreme 3.0 ghz
    motherboard xfx nforce 680i sli
    graphics card geforce 480 gtx
    6gb ram
    installed a 1tb hard drive

    I'm not sure how to fix this and geek squad is charging 250 just to get my pc fixed! Base on what I read on the forum I need to update my bios and that my computer does not meet the spec of windows 10 which is not true I ran a spec test before I installed my windows 10.

    I was thinking to uninstall my windows 10 and install a 64 bit instead of the 32 bit im currently using.

    Im not sure anymore whats causing my desktop to keep restarting every 5 minutes I cant even access my bios.
