Random restarts in Windows 7 64 bit

    Specs:

    Gigabyte P55M-UD2 motherboard

    Caviar Blue 640GB HDD

    2x2GB Corair 1333MHz Desktop Memory

    Intel i5 750 processor

    Edimax 802.11g Wireless PCI card

    nVidia 7950GT video card



    The problem first occurred during installation of W7, at the first restart (i.e. the first point which it boots from the HDD instead of disc)

    My PC simply restarted as if the reset button had been hit upon starting the next stage of installation. Upon bootup I chose the "Start Windows Normally" option and the same thing happened game. This time I chose "Safe Mode" and it successfully booted but said that installation could not complete during safe mode. So this I manually restarted it automatically went to normal windows mode and successfully installed.



    All seemed fine (I installed all necessary drivers) but today the same thing happened on bootup and the same thing solved it. No memory dump was made.



    I'd like to point that I built this computer myself, and it was my first time doing so, so I may have screwed up something.



    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Is the PSU OK?
    Check whether the RAM is compitable with your Mobo
