Random Restarting

I bought my new PC last December. Since that day I have been experiencing random restarts. I handed my PC to the shop from where I bought it. They replaced my RAM. After a week I started experiencing random restarts again! I handed my PC to the shop from where I bought it for the second time. They replaced My P5QC to a new motherboard: P5P43TD. After a week I I started experiencing random restarts again! I handed my PC to the shop from where I bought it for the third time!! Unluckily they said "We ran stress tests for days... and nothing seems to be wrong!"

Now my PC is randomly restarting again.
Sometimes it restarts after a week and sometimes aftar minutes :/
I thought it was my keyboard and I changed it. After changing my keyboard it took 2 weeks till the next restart... but then my PC started to restart again!!
I don't know what to do.

Help pls!

PS: Specs in my profile

EDIT: I forgot to mention that after restarting, I lose the saved passwords in the internet explorer. for instance: I have to re log in in Facebook.

hello
from simple repair with your issue.. please make sure your casing fan is locked to the processor socket, because if that not locked all to the socket,that's make processor hot and will restart auto.
