hi guys recently ive been having an amazingly unusual and annoying problem with my pc. It restarts randomly and i dont know whats causing the restart to occur. Also when i leave my computer on to download a big file i turn off my moniter. When i come bak to use the computer and turn on the moniter it restarts!! IM really confused as to why it restarts when i turn on moniter. Can the problem be overheating. Some times it just restarts while im playing a game. I dont know what to do but can someone help.
PS : i have just reinstalled windows and formatted my drives so its not a virus.

Do you get any blue screens or does it just restart? Make sure "restart on system failure" is off. Right click "My Computer" then "Properties" then the "Advanced" tab click on "System Failure and Recovery" then uncheck "restart automatically"

To open Event Viewer, click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Event Viewer

let me know what you see.

well i did reinstall windows after formatting C drive and then used mcaffee to check for viruses so its not a software problem.
I checked even viewer and there were a lot of red X's as u said. They were a lot of them in succession of the same type.
THere were 3 types of errors
The error description said "the device, /device/cdrom0, has a bad lock and the Source was "cdrom"
THe error waz "the device, /device/ide/ideport0, did not respond within the timeout period and the source was "atpi"
the error was "your computer has lost the lease to its IP adress ******** on the network card with the network address *****" and the souce waz "DHCP"

The cdrom error came about 20-25 times the dhcp error only came once and the atpi error came about 5 times.
Hope this helps.
