Random Restarts - Home Built

In short, my computer randomly restarts. This is obviously a problem but
I haven't the slightest clue where to start.

I built the computer a few days ago, my first time mind you, so I am
willing to swallow my ego and realize this could be my fault. Any ideas
on where to start? What other info do you need to help? Thanks in
advance!!

Random restarts are generally caused by hardware problems. Overheating,
faulty RAM, bad hard drive, etc.

Re: Random Restarts - Home Built
under System Properties, Advanced tab, Startup section, uncheck the option to AUTO RESTART.
then you should get some information that might point to the problem.
