do you have 'power surge protection' strip (extension sockets) from the mains electric?

Was there a thunderstorm going on locally?

Did the pc throw up any error messages after it restarted?

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under Startup & Recovery click Settings. Under System Failure unctick the box in front of Automatically restart.

The next time you should get an error message on a blue screen. Post that here.
