    im no hardware expert but iv'e had the same problem with xp and graphic apps - it turned out to be a problem with a device driver, packard bell scanner - you can check by opening 'device manager', open each device and if you have any with a yellow exclamation mark over them, this could be your problem

    try right clicking first and 'disalbe' - just incase the device is important

    go to start>right click on my computer>click the advanced tab>click settings under startup and recovery.

    then uncheck the box saying "automatically restart" under system failure

    this will stop the comp from restarting however, it may not solve the problem

    p.s. when your computer has been restarting, do you get an error message along the lines of "windows has recovered from a serious error..."?
    if so, click on the details section and look at what files were involved in the crash
