    Is it restarting or shutting down? Ive only had a couple instances where it would shut down once was with a computer whos heat sync wasnt properly connected to the processor so it would shut down once it got too hot. The other time with restarting, is if the computer has automatic updates on, the computer will sometimes restart itself without asking if you want it to once it updates, or at least it does sometime with the computer i use.

    I'm pretty sure it wasn't automatic updates, for about 2 seconds, the mouse wouldnt move, the screen freezes and turns to a different colour lets say brown or something, i'm not playing any music but the speakers emit a sound like EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE, and then my computer restarts and reboots again! wat the heck!

    When you say you bought it recently, do you mean it was built by someone else or did you build it yourself? If someone else built it, is there a warranty on it?

    If you built it yourself, is the BIOS version up to date to support the new 6 core CPU? What kind of power supply is being used?

    Do you get any BSOD when your system restarts ?

    If that is not the case, please follow these instructions:

    1. Right Click on my Computer and then on Advanced System Settings
    2. In start and recovery, click on settings
    3. In System Failure, click on Write an event to the system log & Automatically restart
    4. Also select Kernel Memory Dump from the drop down list.

    Click OK twice.

    Also go to Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Open Event Viewer and check all logs, especially with Red/Yellow tags and see whether something meaningful is being logged which can help us identify the issue. Regards
