Why is my computer still restarting without warning?

My computer was restarting randomly on Windows 7 32-bit. I didn't know why. I did a clean install on Windows 7 64-bit and it's still restarting randomly and without warning. I disabled automatic restart but it still does it. I bought more fans so my comp is at a pretty good temperature. What's wrong?

    Could be a bad hard drive.

    Bad memory.

    Overheating of components.

    Bad BIOS.

    Bad power supply.

    Bad anything really.

    Troubleshoot all your hardware with a second PC, switch parts with a compatible one. Like memory, switch that to another computer that supports that memory and see if anything happens. Etc.

    Or take it to a local PC store to try that for you.

    Also do keep in mind you switched from 32bit to 64bit, so you may have some incompatible software drivers.

    Sounds like either your power supply or motherboard is starting to go. Test it with a different power supply if you can; it's a lot cheaper and easier to replace a power supply than the entire motherboard.

    Most likely a hardware issue, you will need to have someone open the system and see if any component has problems.

    I think there is problem in hardware or there is virus in your computer so scan ur computer drives and update ur hardware driver
