Hi, Im a new member here and My computer keeps crashing on me too. Don't know if we may have the same problem
Just to specify things, are you getting a blue screen with information before your computer restarts...or is your computer just restarting by itself?

First thing I would do in this case is to open the case and see if there is a lot of dust about. Start the machine and make sure all the fans are working properly. This is commonly a heat problem involving the CPU or power supply fan. If you've dusted it out and the fans are working you can use memtest86 to check the memory. It can be downloaded to a floppy or burned to a CD as an image. If this doesn't help come back and tell us more.

Newbit Please start your own post.

First we want to check if you are getting blue screens.

To make sure what we want to do is stop windows from automatically restarting and display the blue screen error message.

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

When your computer restarts automatically next report any error messages. If you get a blue screen with white text report all the technical information.
