restart by itself

Ok I have a problem with a pc that restart it self. It don't happen a lot but
enough to bug me. Only thing new is the hard drive but that was formatted
in the pc (with UBCD) and a fresh install of windows. So I don't think it's
the hard drive.
So where else can I look to fix this?

    Power supply or memory would be my best guess.

    Are the BIOS settings at default or have you tweaked them? Of particular interest would be the voltage settings.

    If you can get a copy of memtestx86 you can test your RAM to make sure its not bad!

    The only way I know to test a power suply is with a multi meter.
