    Sounds to me you are describing a crash which the cause maybe a faulty or failing power supply.. Random reboots are a sign of it .... I suggest getting a powers supply checker (can be found and most good computer stores ) you plug your ATX connector from your motherboard in to it if all the lights are on it is ok .. this comes with directions..

    Follow these steps

    1 unplug your power supply
    2 remove the atx connector from mobo
    3 plug in power supply tester
    4 plug in your power supply
    5 run test

    Also a local computer shop can do this test for you if you do not have the tools to run the test...

    let us know
