Just rebuilt my entire PC recently.....

Motherboard- Biostar Hi-Fi A85W
Chipset- AMD A4-5400 processor
8GB of RAM
Brand new power supply- Corsair TX650
just added new heasetsink- Enermax ETS-T40

My issue is that my PC randomly restarts or freezes up(when you see the colored lines on your monitor) usually when I run a program or run virus scans... even when I do windows updates... I also wiped my hard drive and installed fresh windows 7. And my CPU temperatures keep jumping from 39 Celsius to like 65 Celsius randomly... Need some help please

There should be an error that indicates why the computer was restarted - i.e. power problem, heat related, unknown (I hate these), etc...

Not seeing anything like that, all the errors just say that a service took too long to startup and other things like that

Just got the BSOD after a random restart. I unplugged everything and removed hardware and reinstalled everything and plugged in all back in to make sure everything was seated right, and still restarting and now giving me BSOD

I am thinking it may be my Processor overloading and overheating, thinking the processor can't handle it..... Any input?

If the processor was overheating - you should have something in your BSOD or Event Viewer than indicates shutting down because of the heat problem. When you examine the logs (Event Viewer) and BSOD (Nirsoft Viewer), 99% of the time, you will find the likely cause.
