You are presumably blue-screening, and you are set to reboot whenever
that happens. Right-click My Computer, and choose Properties. On the
Advanced tab, click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Under System
failure, uncheck the box "Automatically restart.
Now when the problem occurs again, instead of restarting, you will get
the blue screen with diagnostic information. Post back with those
details for more help.
And by the way, spontaneously rebooting is almost always a hardware
issue, not a Windows one.
