Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go. Random reboots are usually caused by heat, memory, driver issues or the power supply. You need to examine each possible cause to either correct it or rule it out. Start with heat. Are the fans clean and working? Is the heat sink free of dust? Access the bios and check the cpu temperature. You can download speedfan (do a search for it, download it...it is free) and use it to check temperatures and voltates. You can test the memory with memtest86. Get it at http://www.memtest.org/. You can check the system event log for clues as to the possible cause. Go to start, my computer, right click manage, event viewer. Check for items with a red x corresponding to the time of the event. Right click on the event, view properties for details. You can sent a report to M$ and view their knowledge base for possible solutions. And lastly, don't overlook the power supply as the cause.
