  1. Hi guys, I was wondering if you guys could help me fix this problem I have.. I just bought this computer maybe 3-4 weeks ago and just as I started using it.. it restarts here and there on its own.. whether I play Starcraft 2 or just do random stuff, it restarts once in a while on its own with no warnings, no BSOD, no nothing..

    Here are the specs of the computer:
    CPU Intel Core i5-2500 3.3GHz CPU
    Motherboard ASUS P8Z68-V LE Motherboard
    Memory 16GB (4x4G) Patriot DDR3 1600MHz
    SSD Corsair Force 3 120GB SATAIII 2.5" SSD
    Video Card Gigabyte Video Card R695OC-1GD
    Optical Drive 1 LG 22X DVD RW + - Dual Layer, SATA(
    Network Adapter Onboard Network Adapter
    Case Enermax ECB3071M Mid Tower Case
    Power Supply Cooler Master eXtreme Power Plus 700W Power Supply

    Any ideas as to what could be the problem?

    Thank you very much in advance

    Turn off automatic restart by going to Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, Startup and Recovery, settings, and un-check automatically restart. While you are in there, un-check "time to display operating systems" and lower "time to display recovery options when needed" to 10 seconds or so... This will speed up the Windows boot time. May I say you are running Windows 7 64-bit?
