Windows 10: PC Restarting by itself Solved

    Could I suggest that you set your system to not auto restart after a BSOD. You can then get information about driver or dll that Windows believes took it out. Nirsoft BluesecreenView may also shed some light on this.

    To change auto restart behavior, Control Panel, System and Security, System, on left Advance System Settings, Startup and Recovery, Settings, Uncheck box for Automatically restart. While you are there you can change to a mini dump which I believe BlueScreenView requires.

    If you set automatic restart to off you will have to power down and then power on to initiate boot. If system has reset button that will also start boot.

    You will see a BSOD Crashes and Debugging section in forum. There are some specific posting requirements in a sticky should the issue persist.

    Hi

    sorry it took so long to get back to you, your advice is good, I will do as you say in a couple of days.

    The PC was sent out for repair and seemed okay, no restarts for a few days then they started again.

    At the moment I am testing to see if it is a software issue, I have cloned the drive onto a backup drive
    and installed Vista to see if it still happens, so far so good after a day.

    I'm not real hopeful but we shall see.

    Regards

    Daniel

    Hi

    Thank you so much for your input, it was 100% the right thing to do, I loaded back the original OS, changed the BSOD to stop,
    and within an hour the BSOD showed the problem, it was a graphics driver issue, I could have kicked myself because when I had more time to focus "reinstall the Graphics Driver" was always the first thing I did when I had a problem with any of my PC's or Laptops, and it usually worked.

    I have put up with this issue, paid money to have it fixed, without success, all because I did not follow my own rules.

    The PC has been running now for 14 hours without a restart, if it happens again I will replace the card but I think it will all be okay.

    Thanks again.

    Daniel

    There might be a ram issue. You can try cleaning it and assuring it's properly set in the bios.
