It could be overheating due to dust and debris built up inside. Open it up and carefully clean it out paying particular attention to the fan to make sur it is running freely.

Make sure the memory sticks are pressed in firmly or if you have 2 sticks remove one and see if it makes any difference.Then take that one out and replace it with the other just to make sure the memory is not faulty.

I would agree with Rawprawn but as you have been inside the computer you would have noticed if it needed cleaned or not.

Just had to clean the inside of my daughters computer for the same reason computer would reboot itself.

  1. overheat - try cleaning CPU fan and heatsink and clean and replace thermal paste

  2. PSU faulty try a substitute PSU
