    Press F8 before windows starts to boot and you should get a menu with safe mode etc. Select 'Disable automatic restart on system failure' then when the system crashes you may get a blue screen with some error codes. Please post the error codes here.

    Alternativly you could check the event viewer for applications and system errors. Right click 'My Computer' and select 'Manage' then 'Event Viewer'.

    P.S. I do not think the MOBO battery will be causing this problem.

    When the PC restarts, go into the BIOS immediately after the system boots (usually by pressing DEL, long before the Windows screen comes up).

    Check the system temperatures and see what they say.
