    It could be down to your computer is overheating,a very common problem that can cause rebooting, can you hear the fan running? it may well be that the vents at the back of the computer (asuming its a tower you have) are blocked with dust etc and require cleaning to allow the heat to escape,thats the first thing you should check,it may be that you need to get inside the computer and give it a good blow out with compressed air .....if you click on this site http://www.tigerdirect.ca/static/html/heatprotect.html it will give you a good idea about overheating .....

    You can buy the can of AIR for about $5 a can... Clean the entire insides (PSU, mobo, drives, air vents)... BIOS should also tell you the TEMP of your CPU.

    thanks for the tips guys:) . i took my time and cleaned everything up. i did find a thick layer of dust on my cpu's heatsink, so i was very relieved after cleaning it and thinking that will solve the problem. unfortunelly it didn't. now i am suspecting the stock fan on the cpu isn't working too well. i will try to buy a new cooling device to see if that will stop the rebooting. i will report back when i have the results.
