Windows 7: Computer randomly rebooting, non heat related.

31 Jul 2014   #11

Windows 10 Pro

What you posted is exactly how a forced shut down should happen, or when power supply is cut off. But before there is a confirmation that it is a power supply issue, I would usually advise to check for system errors, followed by confirmation that it is hardware issue.

Either way you can go ahead and jump a step to replace the power supply and if the restart doesn't happen then it's solved.
If it still happens then we can start looking at software troubleshooting.

Swapped the socket about 30 hours ago, no errors since, luckily its the weekend so not ordering the PSU wont affect me much while I test this. Thank you all for your suggestions and help.

Do keep us posted.
If you are referring to the wall socket be careful and don't use that wall socket until a pro checks it out.
