When did this start? Have you made any changes to the system recently? Do you see a blue screen flash for about half a second before the computer restarts? Does it restart at random times, or just when you perform a specific action?

You may find some information about what is going on immediately before a crash by reviewing your event viewer logs.
Click Start then right click My Computer and select Manage and click the + for Event Viewer. Have a look at the 2 options System and Application by clicking on each and checking what was going on precisely before the restart. Especially double click on errors to get details. A lot of it will be gobbledigook techbabble but you may find something consistent. Make a point of recording the date and time of each crash (and what was open on your computer at the time). This ought to help sourcing the problem.

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED, choose the SETTINGS button in the Startup And RECOVERY section, and uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Now reboot. This should result in the BSOD error, either right away or later on when it normally would restart.

When you see it, report the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
