    My initial problem was that the computer used to reboot continuously at random times with no message in the event viewer. Also, it used to do continuous restarts one after the other. I flashed the bios but the problem remained. A couple of days ago, I replaced the power supply with a bigger 400 watts (from 300). Now, it seems more stable and does not restart continuously, however, it is now randomly shutting down completely. In order for me to switch it on again, I have to turn the power supply switch off and then on again. These problems have started since I installed the WD hard drive. Can you help???

    Right click my computer\properties\advanced\startup & recovery. Untick auto restart. Now you will get an error message to post here.

    Heat could be a problem. Loose cables?

    The CPU temperature is around 50 and the cables seem ok.
    How can I check my mobo?

    There might be a setting in the bios for temperature.
    Push DEL at bootup.

    Be careful in there.
