My computer reboots its self every hour, on the hour. The first time I had this issue, I re-installed Windows 7 64bit because I wasn't sure of the copy given to me. It worked great for a few months and yesterday it started to do it again. I have sleep
mode turned off, display will never turn off, also I have it so it doesn't automatically reboot, but it is almost as if I'm holding the power button to shut it off. The only warning I get is the power supply will rev up and just restart. If I could get any
help, it would be greatly appreciated.
1 Check the times against the tasks in Task scheduler to see if the crashes are happening when one of them runs.
Type, scheduler into the Start menu search box, select Task scheduler, in the middle of the opening screen is Task status - use that to identify the tasks starting at the relevant times. Look at any suspect tasks in its library in the left pane. If it
doesn't seem to be a necessary Windows function then disable it [select it then click Disable in the right-hand pane] to see if the symptoms go away. Post the results here.
2 It could be an overheating problem so hopefully someone will post advice about that next.
3 It could be an infection but it's an odd one.
