Hello again Geekstogo, wondering if anyone can help with my father's laptop.
I don't know what's wrong with it, but it's continuously, randomly restarting itself- I have no idea why.
Nothing else really wrong but that.
Thanks if you can help.

Temperatures and the video adapter drivers are a good place to start

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for display / video adapter

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System

If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything

Click the + next to computer then sensor for the temperatures
