    Hi dk.

    How much RAM do you have?
    Is the reboot continual or only once?

    If you have an Athlon processor, your system could be overheating.

    In my experience a faulty power supply is most often the cause of random restarts. It could be other things too like a motherboad or ram problem but a bad power supply is usually the cause in my experience. Have it checked out.
