Which version of Windows.? Does it do this while you are working on it? How old is the Laptop? Is it overheating? Is it always doing it in one particular program? Does it do the same in Safe mode.

Elaborate a little please. As much information as possible.

More information here would be helpful as per the first reply. This could be a software/Windows issue or hardware - but impossible to tell without some details.

  1. What version of Windows?

  2. What are you doing at the time?

  3. Does it get a BSOD? (Blue Screen Of Death) - a blue screen with a whole bunch of numbers and unintelligible stuff on the screen?

  4. Have you recently added or upgraded any components? - If you have, say, added a new video card, or additional hard drives, your Power Supply may not have enough power to supply electricity to all your components. This WILL cause sudden reboots.

Please let us know.
