    I've had this before as well. Either you can try to reformat your computer and hope that the problem goes away, or buy a new one. I bought a new one and I no longer have these issues (after trying option #1 of course)

    I can think 3 reasons:

    1) if u have internet connection then there might be a "trojan" that downloads and then leads to restart.
    2) check ur Processor can happen coz of overheating too.
    3) ur powerbox fan could also be a reason.

    u can try formatting ur PC as last option.

    and all the more
    if u have UPS get that checked too.

    keep stand-by mode selected
    so even if u leave ur PC on it wd shut down ur hard-disk processor and other hardware.

    replace your powersupply (SMPS) I had this problem too.. If the processor gets too hot, and the cpu fan is not colling enough then the Computer would hang..and not restart since your computer is just 10 months old you would have a warranty on the SMPS...

    It most probably happens due to over heating. It does not seem that ur computer gets enough external space. Just change the location of the computer and keep it in some open space. I faced the problem too and did likewise to get rid of the problem. There can also be a problem with the Heat Gel of your processor. If it was not applied correctly, then it is bound to happen. So, you better call customer service executive and ask him what to do. Best of luck :)

    a quick shortcut is (if the place is not too dusty, and there aren't much insects about) to keep the side panels of ur cabinet opened, not detached but just unscrewed and ajar. that helps a lot.

    think that the where it is found prob coz i have my fridge just next to that so i guess the heat released by the fridge + some overheating caused by overuse of the comp may have resulted such will change position of the cpu
