More about restarts self
  1. have you installed any new hardware or software?
  2. Are you getting a blue screen before the system restarts? If so, then you might have bad memory.
  3. Are you using your old PSU in the new rig?

    i am using the brand new psu
  7. plz suggest me something what to do ASAP
  8. Sorry, there's not a whole lot to go on here. The only suggestion I have at this point is to use a program called memtest+86 to test your memory. Memtest+86 is a program you you either burn to a cd or to a thumb drive, then boot from that drive.
  9. What are your CPU temps? Is your CPU overheating? have you installed your CPU heatsink correctly?

    But first mention which PSU you're using. Wattage, Brand name etc...
    PC restart problems are mostly associated with PSUs.

  18. Test your PC without the UPS. If it still restarts, then its most probably the PSU.

    ok
  20. GOD!! who ever suggested that case to you must really be new at making pcs.
    Get a standard PSU, I don't think techcom is that bad for a standard user in india, they aren't the best PSU makers, far from it, but still they dish out standard cheap crap. A 450W PSU from techcom comes for about 400INR with all the required cables for a 20+4 plus 8 and a PCIe Power pin.... so it ought to work with atleast one GPU.
    If nothing works, go get one of them and use it.
