Well if it is restarting without warning everywhere

Start off by changing the BIOS Battery. When they get flat or low they cause quite a few screwy problems restarting is just one of them.

If after changing the BIOS Battery the problem persists you will most likely have to change the Power Supply as well. Restarts can also occurs when the Power Supply is going bad and isn't providing enough current for the computer to run.

Just a note of caution here when you remove the BIOS Battery make sure that you have disconnected the power first and then you can start to remove the cover to get access tot he M'Board. Do Not remove the battery while there is power applied to the M'Board as if you drop the battery it will short out the M'Board and damage it.

This is palliative, not curative

1) Boot the computer into Safe Mode by tapping the F8 key during the early boot phase (POST = Power On Self Test). One of the Safe Mode options will be:

Disable automatic restart on system failure

Select this option with your arrow keys, then hit Enter.

Now the real work begins, because you need to determine the cause of this glitch.
