My PC rebooted itslef two times in less than 1 hour. This is the first time it has ever happen. I was browsing on the Internet and the screen goes black and it reboots itself. I ran a spybot and adaware. I also remove a java applet I downloaded.

Does anyone know why something like this will happen? Any help will be appreciated. PEACE

first thing that comes to mind is heat.

if you have a big house fan try taking the side of the case off and running with the fan blowing inside. if the problem stops, then you need more case/cpu cooling.

could boot into your bios and check the temp there when it crashes.


other possible causes are defective/overloaded power supply or a bad ram chip.
