    Powersupply? On my previous computer the power supply wasent that great, the motherboard power cable was folty. If i nocked my computer it would restart, it would even restart on its own sometimes.

    Could be windows update, check that it isn't set to automatically install.

    Also check your system log.

    possible overheating? i know that mine does that to me sometimes....check out your temperature in your bios or get a program like motherboard monitor that appear on the taskbar by the clock (assuming that youre using windows)

    Um...that _better_ not be Celsius.

    134 F = ... 55 C? Doesn't sound so bad then.

    Get a can of compressed air. Get rid of all the fine dust buildup on your cpu fan, as well as on any other fans. Most HSFs will get near-completely blocked in my house within six months.
