Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Random restarts problem


I am getting random restart/reboot..

I would be doing something and the system would just reboot/restart...

I am not sure if it shutdown and then powers back on or it just restarts
but it would restart the pc randomly..

There is no BSOD..
I disabled auto restart on system failure..

Please someone help me

This problem is really pissing me off..

I am using

win 7 64bit
i5 2500k
8gb ram
650w hx650 corsair
ati 6950
