    Download HWMonitor to monitor your system temperatures. High CPU temps may cause a system to restart.

    Does your system reboot only while playing games or randomly?

    Also give us the specs of your system.

    Here are the things i know that can cause that to happen. Ram going bad, overheating, graphics card, or maybe even just some updates that installed automatically and the it automatically restarted.

    Did you do it by yourself or had the service in a shop? Like everyone is saying, concentrate on the cooling system. Otherwise just one thing is left to do...

    Hi candise,

    To help further with the problem, you may want to post your minidump files here so that someone can debug them and get a better idea as to what might be causing the issue.

    You can locate your minidump files

    Start > My Computer > Local Disk C: > Windows > Minidump

    Attach 4-5 in your next post :)
