Question about Computers & Internet
If your PC (and I will assume a desktop) restarts without going into a dump or blue screen of death (BSOD), it is possible that you have a hardware fault. The possibilities could be:
1. defective capacitors near the CPU.They should be visually checked for any swelling, dielectric leakage or anything out of the ordinary. If the top is bulging, then they have overheated;
2. defective/underrated power supply; and/or
3. defective (or slow) CPU fan (or sometimes that of the video card).
In some instances, some virus have been known to cause a forced restart.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back with brand/model of your PC/motherboard or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
