Computer restart when CPU not doing stress things.

This is my first post here, but I have read many topic and now I can't find anyone have encounter the same problem like me so I have to post a topic for my self. I'll go straight to the point.

My computer is sometimes suddenly restart (don't even have a dumb screen).

This situation came from 1 time I reinstall my window with my usb drive (Both of the .iso file and the usb used to work very well on 3 different computer including mine).

I thought it was because of virus or malware or something like that and I have already scan my computer by Kaspersky Internet Security and nothing changed.

The most trickiest thing is, when I'm playing "big" games like borderlands 2, diablo 3, dota 2 or doing things that put my CPU on stress like memtest or stress test my CPU, my computer never restart. But when I play "small" games like minecraft or surfing the web, using visual studio or SQL server (I'm just doing some homework), my computer is sometimes restart as I said.

I really don't know what is going on with my computer. First thing is I want to know some possibility that cause problem like this (because of software or hardware) and after that maybe I can find a way to fix this. And I have done some search thought out the net but still can't find anything.

Thanks for reading this and sorry if I made any mistake, I'm not very good at English. :)

    it can be any number of things, literally... try checking the Event Viewer for details of events that happen right before you lose the computer

    if u can recreate the issue then it would really help to diagnose the culprit
  2. Thanks a lot dingo07. I never use the Event Viewer before. I'll google how to use it and told you the result :D
  3. It just restart again. And I have checked the Event Viewer, it show only 2 of this:
