Verify you have over 1 gig of space on the hard drive... if your pagefile is
getting full, it will automatically reboot the computer... also verify your
power supply can handle all the hardware you have plugged in, that too will
(I had both these problems on a friends cpu.. we disconnected an extra hard
drive and it quit... then he filled the hard drive left up, had less then a
gig free and his cpu started auto restarting at random times, I deletes and
cleaned usless programs to free space and now he's running fine...
