Hi All

This has been happening for the past while now. Every time I accidentally knee or hit my tower, my PC reboots. Any ideas as to what is causing this and what I can do about it?

Is this a custom built computer? If so, did you remember to put the standoffs between the motherboard and case? Make sure the motherboard isn't touching the metal inside the case, as this will cause the motherboard to short out. Go through and check all of your connections too, including the heatsink on the processor.

Thanks, this is indeed a custom build computer, although I did not install the motherboard.

I will check this over!
