Quick question

  1. I've been having restarting issues with my computer, but it doesn't seem to be an error. It doesn't make minidumps, and my eventviewer doesn't really show anything that could cause such a piss off. I was wondering.. Could my computer overheating cause the restarts? Like, when it does restart.. It restarts multiple times, and if I shut it off for an hour, it's fine again. Any suggestions?

    Somewhere within the BIOS there are temperature settings. For example, it may be set to restart your comptuer if the CPU reaches 60C. Use CoreTemp to check your CPU temperature.

    So, what do I do if that is the problem?
