Hello, it may possibly be a heat problem. If it reboots and runs fine for awhile and then turns off it sounds like it is over heating. A couple things to check out are make sure the cooling fans are running if present, also make sure the tower is well ventilated and not full of dust. One of these could be your issue. Good Luck!
