Can you supply more than just your CPU and MoBo info? Such as your vid card and your Power Supply rating? Maybe it's sucking too much than your Power Supply can handle. It might just be your Hardware.

A guess is that it is overheating. You should clean the interior of your PC.

well i do no tthink it is overheating becasue:
1. It was all cleaned out about 2-3 weeks ago
2. it doesn't feel hot RAM,motherboard,graphics
3.Everything else seems to be worknig in order and from the past when my computer was overheating it happened with games but also with dvds etc.
I did however, get some information from this website http://www.robpol86.com/Pages/imagecfg.php but i cannot get it to work {unless im doing soemthing wrong} but i do have a dual core CPU which i read from a differnt wedsite {sorry cannot find it history/google} which said to just command 1 to work or something like {not exact casue it was a while back} :thumbsup:

Did you update your drivers? Did you update your BIOS? Try Speedfan for temps.

Ok, I'm just stuck... I really don't know how to help anymore. What I can do is point you to a website where these guys know the ASRock MoBo inside and out. Overclock.net ASRock Page, you'd probably might want to register first.

It could be your power supply. Random re-starts like that its a sign that your power supply its just not supplying enough juice to your system. Try swapping out the current power supply that you have with a reliable one and see what happens. Just make sure the one that you swap out with its better than the one you have installed right now. If it was a overheating problem your system would just lock up.
I hope this helps. If not just keep posting.
