    he probably used the same thermal pad\paste on his cpu and so it is over heating.

    check out what the temps are in the bios or by using an app like speed fan or mother board monitor 5.


    if the temp isn't high then do this:
    right click my computer>properties>advanced>start and recovery settings>uncheck "automatically restart..."
    he will now receive a blue screen with an error message. get him to write down all info he sees then post it here.

    Very possible/likely.

    If this is not the case then he needs to eliminate any hardware issues as the probable cause.
    Unplug everything save the vid card, RAM and CPU from the motherboard and PSU....see if the board will POST and stay on.
    If not, substitute a known good PSU and see what happens.
    Continue down the list, substituting as you go till you find the problem area.
    Alternatively, using a POST Card will immediately tell you the problem, but I realize that not everyone has access to such a device....

    when a motherboard fried on me, my computer continually shut down & restarted itself. it was creepy.
