Spontaneous restarts are usually the result of a hardware problem. Usually bad cooling causing the CPU to overheat.

If this is a laptop system, make sure all the vents are clean and NEVER! NEVER! have the laptop on while it is setting on a soft surface such as a blanket or throw.

If this is a desktop, check the CPU fan and again make sure that the vents are clean. On a desktop, a failing power supply can cause the same symptoms.
