During the past couple months my desktop (Running Windows 7) has been restarting when I'm away from it. At least, that's what I'm assuming it's doing because sometimes I'll turn my monitor on and it will be on the login screen. This would happen maybe once or twice a week. Then, a couple weeks ago, it restarted while I was using it (I think I was browsing the internet or something). That was the first and only time that happened. It restarted unexpectedly without going through the normal processes that it would for shutting down. Then yesterday, I turned on my monitor to find it in system repair, stuck on the loading screen. It stayed like this for a long time so I decided to restart it, assuming it was frozen. When it booted up, I got a blue screen error. The same thing happened in safe mode. I am using my computer now and it is functioning as it normally would because I did a system restore to a few days ago. It hasn't shut down unexpectedly since then, but that's probably because I restored it only a couple of hours ago. Does anyone know what could be causing these problems?

Go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Event Viewer -> System events and sort through the errors.

Creating multiple threads with the same issues will only compound the issues. Stick with one thread that way everyone knows what is going on and what you are doing to troubleshoot, as one step here may hinder a step in the other thread.
