    Pending OP Response Help with Freezing & Restarting PC

    My PC randomly freezes and restarts. The chances of it freezing/restarting seems to increase when I'm putting a load on my system (such as gaming).

    Sleep and Restart don't work

    Whenever I try to restart my computer, once it powers down it never actually restarts and I have to manually turn it off again. I also have a problem with the sleep mode (not the screen turning off sleep mode) where once I activate sleep mode the computer acts like it's asleep for about one...

    Computer restarts whenever turned on.
