Computer is restarting automatically

Hello, my computer all of a sudden is restarting automatically. This computer is brand new and all of a sudden it is making automatic restart without my permission. I have bitdefender as an antivirus and I scanned my computer but no virus was found. Could this be something from the hardware or it may be a virus that my anitivirus is not knowing it is a virus? Thanks

Disabling the 'restart on system failure' feature may permit the exact cause to be isolated: Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure untick the box in front of Automatically restart.

The next time you may get a blue screen with an error code and message. Please post the full code and message here.
