Since 2 month my pc facing a restart related problem. The problem is peculiar. It never happened in the day time. It happens just at night. My pc is not heating much. In idle mood it 35c – 36c. & in load 46c – 50c. What should I do now. Please suggest.

You should try to figure out what changes between day and night. (That your PC would care about)

How's the power grid where you live?

Sometimes Windows Updates are set to 'Automatic Updates' (which is recommended) and the time for downloading these updates is around 2AM. In some cases, these updates require an automatic restart and that is what the computer will do.

However, in the morning you should see a message stating "Your PC was restarted to install updates"

This will happen once or twice a month in most cases.

"The system has recovered from a serious error" - This is a blue screen error (BSOD) and must be resolved.

Usually the RAM is the culprit. Check the RAM one module at a time in order to find out which one is the bad module. If necessary, you can use "memtest86" to check the RAM modules.

You still need to find out why this happens only at night.

^ Yes I agree with you! Try one more thing. Plug the computer directly into the wall plug instead of going through a power outlet strip.

Sometimes a defective power outlet strip will create the problems that you describe. But why only at night I do not know. Obviously something is happening at night that doesn't happen during the day. This you must investigate based on your environment.
