Do this:

Control panel>System> Advanced tab>Startup recovery/failure button, on the bottom> Uncheck automatically restart on system failure.

Secondly, Check event viewer

Control panel>Administrative tools>Event viewer, check applications, system, and security and see if there is a report right before or after a crash and tell us what it is.

Hey man mine recently started doing that, so i started looking for signs at what was causing it to do so, and i opened my computer up and saw that some capacitors was inlarged and corroded which means that the motherboared had overheated and fried. This may be what happened, or it my be many other things too.

Ohh yeah check your hard drive too.
