Random restart is a bit different than the restart in 1:00 countdown. If you are getting a warm reboot without any error message, it could mean that you have a hardware problem. In these cases, I would suspect a flaw in memory first.

Hi there,

Please go Start->Control Panel. In the control Panel, be sure you are on Classic View and then choose System. In the System window, go to Advanced tab. There, under the headline of Startup and Recovery, please click the Settings button. Under the headline of System failure, please UNcheck the box that says Automatically restart. Now, instead of just rebooting, your pc will show a blue screen including information I will need in order to help you. Please, when it happens, either take a picture of it and upload it here or write down the message that it gives on your next reply.
