    Computer restarts itself for unknown reason

    Restarts happen once a week. I made sure that MiniDumps are turned on but there are no files in folder. When I click one more time that I want to use MiniDumps in Properties then an error message showed up that my Virtual memory is lower then 1mb and that it can't be created.
    My win7 system is on SSD drive, my virtual memory 4-6gb is on different drive.
    So I understand that none of minidumps were created on thopse restarts. SO I clicked to create another virtual memory on my SSD 100-200mb but I thought it is VERY ok to put that file on different drive. IS 4-6gb not enough? I don't think using SSD as a palce for swap file is good...
    Anyway I used this SF tool so please check it out if you can see what is wrong. Thank You

    Welcome to Windows EightForums, DuzaKupa.

    Does your Action Center say anything?

    Did you search Event Viewer? WinKey/S > Type event viewer > Enter > It’s probably in System as shown below.

    I just realized that you system specs says you're running 7. Is that true? Please fill out or post them all to better help you.

    Is the electrical power source to your machine being interrupted by any chance? Faulty power strip perhaps?

    Some snips of one or more of those events would be helpful. If duplicates, one would be enough.

    Edit: Are you OCing by any chance?

    i5 750 2.6ghz (I had it OCed but now it's on stock for months)
    2x2gb ram
    win7 x64

    Faulty power strip? maybe, how to check it?

    That's a powering off improperly code. Try a different power strip or plug it in directly to try. Could be your power supply going bad. Could be memory or HD going bad too. I'd do tests on those as well.

Computer restarts every time I unplug cord
Just installed Windows 8 Pro - LOVE it, most everything works great.

All programs closed out and everything; not hibernating....
