Please help!
My computer keeps on restarting without warning.
What might be the problem. Because I've newly formated it and it has no any installed softwares. Thanks.

Try this 1

1) Remove the RAM from the slot, clean it and place it back properly or try another

slot. Check your RAM also. Even bad RAM will results such problems.

2) Check if you are able to boot into the "Safe Mode"

When you switch ON your computer, start tapping the "F8" key to get

"Windows Advanced Options"( if boot menu appears, press "Esc" key and keep

tapping the F8 key)

Select "Safe Mode". If you are able to boot into safe mode then go to

"My Computer" --> Right click on your OS drive and select "Properties".

Click on "Tools" tab--->Click on "Check Now" button.

In "Check Disk" window, select those 2 options and click on "Start" button.

Good Luck

Often the microprocessor is protected. If it gets too hot the pc shuts off by itself.
It is logical and if we 'know them a little: you can decrease the speed of the processor. Either set up a second more powerful fan.
Sometimes it is the processor of the graphics card overheating and also in safety mode that blocks the whole pc.
