    Lately my comp has been resetting alot , on its own i might add. Im an avid gamer and it really sucks when your system decides its gonna reboot on its own for no apparent reason, I currently have a Turbolink Switching Power Supply 420Watt ATX compatable. If anyone has any idea why this might be happening could they give me an insight ? ive done multiple scan disks , virus checks and it has to be hardware related or just a bad PS. I have no IRQ conflicts and mabye i just have too much stuff plugged into it ? specs are below post if able please :)

    Disable automatic reset on an error, and you will see a BSOD and hopefully an error message that will help resolve the cause.

    Control Panel - System - Advanced - Startup and Recovery - Settings - Untick "Automatically restart"
