What's up everyone, first of all sorry for my english, ill do my best. Ok so I bough a builded PC and about 3 weeks later, the computer started to reboot by itself rarely and after it restarted, i got ''windows recovered from an enexpected shutdown'', then it was every 4-5 hours and now every times its start. Exept if I start fast enough battlefield bad company 2 and since then, it will last about 5hours IF I dont go on the web. ( I know its very weird) So I took it back at the store, he changed the GPU (by the same model) Nothing changed, then the motherboard, the cpu and the rams, again, nothing. Same problem. I tried to changed OS thinking it has a default. nothing. So I tought about the PSU, i had a 480 watts psu and I changed it by a 650 watts corsair. Again nothing. I changed the harddrive but the same result as before. I also sheked the temperature but it never goes above 65-70 degres. Its not the first time I rite on a forum about my problem, I got my PC since 4 months now with the same problem.
My Specs :
AMD fx6100 six core 3.3 ghz
GPU:Radeon HD6670 2gb ddr3
RAM:4gbs ddr3( tested with ramtest, no error founded.)
MB: Asus m5a78l-m lx plus.
Help please :(

Could it be a "BSOD" error, but that your computer is set to automatically restart instead of displaying the BSOD error (I hope you know what I mean).

To check if your computer is set to automatically restart: In Windows 7:Navigate to Computer, Right click on your main hard drive "Local Disk", usually drive C: , then click on Properties.
Next, on the window that pops up/appears, click on "Advanced Advanced System Settings" (which is on the far left hand side of the screen). On the window that appears/pops up, click on "Startup and Recovery".
On the window that pops up, there should be a list of options with a heading about half way down titled "System Failure". Underneath, you should see an option called "Automatically restart". Check to see if the box next to it is ticked. If it is ticked, untick it, then click OK, and OK again.
If it is already unticked, than that means that your computer is already set to display BSOD errors.
If was ticked (and you have unticked it) then you will now (hopefully) be able to see the BSOD errors instead of your computer automatically restarting.

Put another post back here to tell me what you found out, any error that you may now have seen.

I hope this is of help :)

This is a really tough one! Everything that I've thought of you've already checked. What about your hard drive? How new is it? Could it be failing do you think?

Have you had a look at the Event Viewer to see what information (if any) it displays about the restarts? That may display some important information that may help.
To access the event viewer have a look at the following links for instructions:

Ok I shecked this out, and its says critical, I clicked on it and it says kernel power id 41. This problem seems common on the net, but none of those a exacly like mine.

Sounds like it could be a problem with the PSU, but you said you've already changed it. What about the power cord that you plug your computer into the power point with? Have you got it plugged into a power board? I wonder if it could be causing the problem?
