Is there any software of built in way in Windows 7 to see some log file on why the system is trying to boot, then after some time reboots itself?

If Windows 7 recovery does not help, is there any other 3rd party software which will help me to do that?

As it's not clear what you've tried already, I'll suggest this to start:

  2. Check the logs in the Windows Event Viewer for pertinent information

Hope that helps get you going.
