Hello.

So i am experiencing this problem for quite a while, like 2-3 months now. Usually i get the restarts when i play a computer game. It is kinda wierd because i can play fifa13 for as long as i want, but i cant finish one game of League of Legends without restarts. Restarts usually occur also when i watch a fullscreen video on youtube or any other site, but i can watch fullscreen movies with windows media player.

I already had my computer on a service, but they said that everything is ok. I already formated my computer twice, so i think it is not a software issue. I think it is a hardware issue, eventhough they said everything works fine.

I also did some testing on my own. I ran memtest for about 8 hours, no errors.

Here are my specs:
ASUS P5Q SE
Intel core quad Q8200 2,33 GHz
Gainward GTX 275
WD 640 GB caviar black
Mushkin enhanced kit 4096MB
LC POWER LC8700 hyperion v2.2

Most likely culprit is the power supply.

This. Johnnyguru does not recommend LC Power PSUs. If they don't recommend them, you better avoid them.

Before buying a new PSU ask who ever services your PC if they can test out the theorie of your PSU being the problem.
Just swap it out temporally and see if that is the problem.
