Why does my computer keep restarting itself?

Question

I was recently signing on to AOL, when all of a sudden my computer just turned off and restarted itself for no apparent reason. I did build my own pc, but all the wires are correct, and it has been running perfectly fine. Im not sure if its a setting i have in the BIOS, or what. Thanx Josh
