My computer is spontaneously restarting, it seems to correlate with playing games.
I use a 32' Samsung TV plugged into my GPU by a HDMI cable, my monitor commonly displays the resolution when switching to a game, this is usually the point in which the computer restarts.

Here are my specs:

GPU: GeForce GTX 560 TI
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 925 Processor - Quad Core @ 2.8 Ghz
RAM: 4.096 GB DDR3
Motherboard: Asus, don't know what specifically

I followed the instructions on this forum regarding a similar problem, I download the updated driver and have gathered BSOD reports, they're attached below.

Please, please help!

So I discovered the problem, the water block of my liquid cooling system was leaking onto my gpu and then into my pci slot. I blow dried the pci slot and cleaned the gpu. I am now using a heatsink that doesn't screw in properly but i have the screws in and tower flat to keep it from moving. I'm monitoring the temp and it's staying at a good 25-40c 40 under load (WoW on ultra).

Yeah but for now I've been keeping an eye on my current set up and peak under load is 50c. Avg 35-45
