The other day my computer randomly restarted but only once so I went ahead and dismissed it as an issue. However, two days later my computer is now randomly restarting every 2 to 30 minutes.

I then updated all my drivers, scanned for any viruses and found nothing. I then booted my computer in Safe mode and suprisingly it didnt restart.

Then I went to reinstall Windows and while doing so my computer restarted twice.

These restarts aren't blue screens containing any error message but just instead the screen goes black and the computer restarts.

I then opened my computer , completely unplugged the power and gently cleaned it of any dust incase that had any chance of being the problem.Then when I started it up only the Power Supply fan ran and nothing else.

I have a Corsair CX750 power supply which is just past a year old, I have read reviews of them constantly failing and even reviews mentioning them causing constant random reboots and then just dying all together.

So currently my suspision is that my Power Supply is faulty and that I need to purchase a new one, however I have no spare ones which I could use to test and I know that random rebooting could be the motherboard, or even RAM issues.

I want to know what your thoughts are on the issue , your help and thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Hi,
I think it might be the graphic card as well, because in safe mode it didn't restart, i would dismiss the power supply and focus on the other probable cause.

There are various reasons for these types of reboots...including overheating, hard drive problems, malware, and other component problems.  I always find it easier to test the functional status of the hard drive...before leaping to other suspects.  So I would run a hard drive diagnostic, just to check/eliminate before moving on.

Is the cooling system working normal? You can check temperatures of CPU and GPU if the sensor of motherboard is working fine. Using software as AIDA or Everest.

Also you can check your motherboard for bad capacitators(with capacitator plague on it).

I have a program that always runs on my desktops that shows the temperatures, and my temperatures are very normal so I don't think overheating is the issue.
