I had a problem like this, please answer these questions:

How often does it restart yourself?

When it restarts, are you using too much ram/processor?

Do you normally experience power surges in your area?

Have you noticed that it restarts when you do an specific action (i.e. open Word)?

Also enter your computer in safe mode (pressing f8 before the windows screen) and scan it using your anti virus software; please provide any other information that you think that help.

If it's forcefully shut down, then I'd say that you have too much dust in your heat sink, or even the system entirely.

But, restarting is different.

Just unplug the computer and clear out the dust in there.

Don't use a vacuum or else it will create static and fry your stuff. Be careful not to break anything.

How often does it restart yourself?its completely random,last time i had this was yesterday at like 4

When it restarts, are you using too much ram/processor? well i find it restarts more on my sisters file which has many many files.

Do you normally experience power surges in your area? nope, last time i had a blackout here in toronto was about 2 years ago.

Have you noticed that it restarts when you do an specific action (i.e. open Word)?well when i open the the bunnykit topic on sals,i noticed it restarts freqently. once i have had the computer restart 3 times in 20 mins  :wub: also it does this sometimes when i go on youtube.

other notes:is this linked to my monitor? i had a samsung 21'' lcd monitor triniton i think andit tends to restart more when i was usng it. the samsung is in for repairs because the monitor has been randomly been shutting off then when u turn it on, it goes so dim, u can bareley tell its there. i have to use my old 17'' monitor for now until it gets repaired and it only restarted on me with this monitor 3-5 times.
