Please check your Event Viewer for error messages in the System sub-category that occur around or just before the reboot. Go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Click on the System sub-category in the left hand pane, and view the Information, Warnings, and Errors in the right hand pane. Double click on the error messages to get the text and let us know what you find.

Rebooting can be caused by your computer overheating. If you haven't cleaned inside the case recently now is a good time.
