it does not happen in safe mode
That tells you that there is some software that is loading that conflicts with the OS, or you have a corrupted driver that trying to load. These are very difficult crashes that are hard to pinpoint, and the only way I know of is to check all your programs 1X1 and reinstall if possible, check all drivers for your system including any video cards, possibly delete/reinstall with latest updated drivers. Reinstall your motherboard chipset/video/sound drivers, and delete them first if possible. The CD that came with your computer will have all those drivers. I would not update them at this point if possible, sometimes updating drivers will cause problems with older software/hardware. Just try to get your system back to normal and concern yourself with updating drivers afterwards.
Try to remember exactly when this started, a real possibility is if you installed a new software program, updated your music software, started using a new browser, etc.
Sorry, man, I wish I could give you a quick and easy answer on this one, but random reboots are one of the most difficult problems to troubleshoot.
The only hardware that I can think of that may cause this is a power supply going bad or too low an output. The only way to test a PS is a tester (Newegg.com has them for $20-$50) or swap out with a different one that has a higher output.
Once a long time ago I had this problem and finally had to throw in the towel, just hosed my hard drive and reinstalled Windows and all programs and that solved it. I never did find the reason.

Let's try a clean boot.
Step 1: Start the System Configuration Utility
, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or provide confirmation.Step 2: Enable half of the Services items
If you can isolate one service that is selected when the problem occurs, that service is the one that causes the problem. If you cannot isolate any service in this manner, a startup item might be causing the problem.
If you determine that a service is causing the problem, go to Step 6. If you determine that no service is causing the problem, go to Step 4.
After you complete Step 4, click to clear the Hide All Microsoft Services check box. Then, repeat the steps in Step 3, except that you are now working in the Startup list instead of in the Services list.Step 6: Resolve the problem
After you determine the startup item or the service that causes the problem, contact the program manufacturer to determine whether the problem can be resolved. Or, run the System Configuration Utility, and then click to clear the check box for the problem item.
If the problem occurs when your computer is in clean startup mode, then the interference is not being caused by a background program. In this case, return your computer to the normal startup mode. The normal startup mode starts Windows in the usual manner by loading all device drivers and services.
You might also want to return Windows to a normal startup mode if you have problems during any of the troubleshooting procedures that are discussed in this article, and if you want to return the services to the original settings.
To return your computer to a Normal startup mode, follow these steps:

Hey man thank you so much. This computer is used in a recording studio and it started again after i installed the Waves 9 plug in bundle. The company that makes the computer system Does not give a recovery disk. Will backing up the drivers first and making a driver disk work?
Probably a silly question but have you tried uninstalling the Waves9 bundle?
