[ System Properties may also be opened using the WinKey+Pause key combination ]

Select the Advanced tab and then click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section

In System Failure section, clear the checkbox next to Automatically Restart

Click OK and OK to exit

Some more system info would help, RAM, Drives, PSU rating etc. Could be that the PSU wattage is not high enough for the system.
