Ho there, folks. Today's issue is related to occasional computer reboots. OS is Windows XP SP3, no viruses or trojans, PSU and cooling is fine (30C). No component, that consumes much power, installed. What else can cause the problem? :(

well, if you got unstable electricity power it could cause reboots

if your system is overclocked to a point where it's unstable it will reboot

if you got faulty drivers it will cause reboots in some cases

if you are dangling a wire while operating a computer loss of connection could cause reboots

are you sure you aren't getting a blue screen (popularly known as BSOD)?

Electricity is stable, no overclocking was made, drivers... I dunno, maybe... wire is ok too, no BSOD spotted. 'ts kinda freeze before reboot.

go to control panel > administrative tools > event viewer

see if your system has any log files right before the reboot happens

it's hard to guess what it is when there's so little info

Does it reboot or just shutdown like someone pulled the plug on it?

Reboot.

Ok, now. To exclude any software bug, I've installed linux OS. Still it reboots. Ran memtest, and after an hour it showed some leaks in red.
