Hello,

I got a new PC a couple of months ago, spec can be found here. It's been working fine, but on Thursday it suddenly restarted. No warning, no blue screen, nothing to indicate why. My monitors all went blank, then after a few seconds, I saw the motherboard logo appear as the PC restarted. Same thing happened today.

I looked in the event log, and there wasn't anything at all that gave any clue. No errors, no warnings, nothing.

C:\Windows\minidump doesn't contain any files, so nothing to help there.

My first thought on Thursday was that it was the heat, as it was a very hot day. However, today isn't so warm. I checked the temperatures in Speccy (see the above link), and while they are perhaps warmer than I'd like, I wouldn't have thought they were high enough to cause a sudden crash.

I realise I haven't give much useful information here, but I don't know what else to give. If anyone can suggest anything else I can use to find out what happened, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks for the link. I don't think much of it is relevant, but there are a few things I can try. It's only happened twice, so I have no idea how long I'd have to wait to decide if it's fixed.
