Open the Event Viewer and look for errors that occur around the time that it happens.

Auto restarts, and shutdowns are often caused by overheating. When was the last time you leaned the fans and ducts in your computer?!

Double-click on it and you should get a better description
Also, how much memory do you have and what's your page file set at?

How current are your anti-virus and Windows Updates? Be sure you're up to date

See if you have any minidump files. Zip up 5 of the most recent from c:\windows\minidump and attach to next post.

Sounds like a power supply problem to me, considering he has turned off "Automatic Restart on System failure".

Lets stress test your system.
  • Please Download Prime95 and save it to your desktop.
  • Double click the icon on your desktop.
  • Follow the onscreen instructions to install Prime95.
  • A shortcut will be created on the start menu. Please start Prime95.
  • If asked to join GIMPS, select "Just Stress Testing."
  • Go to Advanced -> Torture Test
  • Make sure the "Blend" radio button is selected.
  • Press Ok.
This will start a test that will run FOREVER if uninterrupted. Please let the test run for at least one hour. Copy/Paste the contents of the main window in your next reply.

You most likely have an overheating problem. Try opening your case and cleaning/blowing out the CPU heatsink. If that doesn't work, take a picture of your board and post it as a reply.
If that doesn't work, then its probably your power supply.
Finally, if a new power supply doesnt solve it, you have a board problem. :thumbsup:
