Hi everyone, happy holidays and thanks for your help in advance!
My computer, with no rhyme or reason, will suddenly shut down, and restart. When it first started doing this a month or so ago, it would just shut down once and restart about once a day and then it would be fine.
Now, it will shut down and restart, and it will get to the point where it shows my desktop background, but no icons or task bar, and then it will reboot again. It will do this several times, before finally rebooting successfully.
I have tried searching for answers on google... but there are so many different answers and none of them seem to match my problem.
I have checked for viruses and malware (with several different programs) and nothing comes up.
I have also tried cleaning out the inside of the computer.
I have also been watching my CPU temp - the computer is set to auto shut down @ 70C, however this morning it was rebooting with the CPU @ 40C, so I don't think its overheating?
Any help would be great!
