Anyone get this problem......It seems that every day or so, at no particular time and regardless of what im doing, i might be typing or whatever and i hit the enter button the pc does an instant restart.

Anyone have any ideas?

I had this problem once Mal, a quick check of the power lead fixed it (it had come loose).

HTH,

Chris.

In view of the current weather conditions, it may be overheating.
