I'm not the most techy person so please bear with me! If you need any additional information feel free to ask i can add screen shots to run any tests that you would like me to do. So first off I will explain my problem.
The problem is that my computer randomly restarts multiple times throughout the day. When this happens the computer screen turns black, the computer turns off, and after about one second it turns back on. This has been happening throughout the past two years and is completely random (sometimes it'll be in sleep mode even and restart while im not doing anything on it). I suspect that the problem might be the sound card that I put in but I don't know for sure and I don't know how to fix it.
I bought my computer from iBuyPower and its specs are as follows:
Its a 64-bit OS running on windows 10 (I recently upgraded to windows 10 to see if it would resolve the problem)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40GHz 3.90GHz (I don't think im currently overclocking it)
Video Card: AMD Radeon HD 7800 Series
After market Sound Card: Sound Blaster Z
I have tried everything from virus scans to hardware scans to checking the temperature of my computer and I cant find any solutions! I'm up for anything so just let me know what to do.
EDIT: Also there are rare cases where the screen freezes and it emits a high pitched squeal through my headphones that almost deafens me. I then have to restart the computer manually instead of it restarting itself.
