My laptop toshiba satellite A300 , restarts and reboots when using internet and playing games , and also when power adapter is plugged in it and when any other process runs on like playing music and video...

The fan is blocked up and is not able to keep the cpu cold, if it over heats your computer will shut down to prevent damage to itself then restart, to stop this from rebooting you will need to take it apart and remove the CPU thermal module that is attached to the fan and clean it, by doing this help the laptop and keep it running smoothly.
