Default Confused about restarting

My computer randomly restarts every 15 minutes or so. I do not know what the problem is. I scanned for virus's and spyware a couple times, and my computer is clean. I checked to see if the cpu or gpu is running hot, and both are well below threshold.

Before i go on and reformat or reinstall, i would like to know what the hell is going on??

have you timed it to see if it is doing it at regular intervals?
and what temp is your cpu running at? just out of curiosity.

Well that definately looks like a virus. What anti-virus do u use?
Also could be a faulty memory stick.

Do you get a blue screen at all? The problem is normally something overheating or being faulty

Yeha, my guess is a faulty psu. Either that or some bad connection or error within your hard drive.
