    Random Restarts


    No new hardware added everything up to date, would system restore roll back fix this issue ?
    I am just about out of ideas tried various suggestions.Only left now is to try it in safe mode wait
    and see if it restarts which can take hours

    Hi, checking in Safe Mode for 'long enough' is a good idea.

    Have you checked the Reliability History to see if there's anything reported at the time of a restart?

    You may also get some information from the Event Viewer.
    To figure out when your PC was last rebooted, you can simply open up Event Viewer, head into the Windows Logs -> System log, and then filter by Event ID 6006, which indicates that the event log service was shut down—one of the last things that happens before a reboot. This technique won't help you figure out when there was a power outage, but you can filter by Event ID 6005 to see when the system was last turned on—that event shows when the event log service was started again.
    There may be something reported near event id 6006 that helps.

    Worth doing a RAM check, and a disk check - e.g. HD Tune, Health and Error scan tabs.

    Are you overclocking your PC?

    Do you notice the fans running- any sign of overheating?

    If no BSOD or reliability history, than it could be only hardware problem.

    Probably a failing or weak power supply. Failing PSU will usually cause reboots.

    If its is the PSU and you feel confident enough you can test the PSU with a multimeter. There are plenty of instructions on the internet and YouTube how to go about it if you just search for "How can I test my computer power supply?
    You will need a good multimeter, I have tested my computer PSU before and I am not an electrician and found it easy to do so.

    Exactly what I was about to post. You can even get a good $10 digital multimeter if you have local Fry's. That's where I bought mine and I use it a lot from repairing computers to fixing cars/trucks.
