Initially, it all started by my PC would just freeze/hang and at the same time it would produce a short but sharp sound. After that, I read on forums for solutions to this problem. One thing I did was updating my BIOS to the latest version. It was working fine for a good few hours, and suddenly the computer auto restarts. Ever since then, it has been auto restarting on its own after awhile, from like 15 mins - 30mins. It happens most often when I have my game(Dota 2) turned on. However there were times that the game was not on and I was just browsing the net and it restarted too. I just followed the steps from the sticky, however i am not able to get the perfmon /report. Previously like what i read from previous threads, to uncheck the auto restart thingy under the advanced settings page but the PC still auto reboots. I have also tried uninstalling my video card drivers and installing with the most updated one but to no avail. Right now the computer has been turned on for a good 30mins because i am assuming my game is not running in the background? Really hope someone can help me out with this as I have been annoyed by this issue for a long time. Thank you all so much! Do let me know if you all need other information!
