I've been having trouble with my computer(again). Once in a while, the computer restarts itself. But it doesnt even go through the logging off and saving my windows settings, not like a regular shutdown. I just hear the computer make a click sound, then everythings' gone and it just boots back up. What could be the problem?

Most likely--Power supply failing
Possible Heat
Long shot on Bad memory

Start > run
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Anything under system or application when the shutdown occurs? If no, got an extra PC with another pwoer supply you can swap out?

ok i confirmed it. It is just when i start the game, exit the game, then try to start it up again then it crashes and reboots without logging off, saving my settings and shutting down, goes right to the start up screen, as if i just opened the computer. Then i'm guessing its just a bug in the game and its security program.
