Stop rebooting

Question

My computer reboots itself randomly. Six months ago this occured frequently. I replaced my 300w power supply with a 400w one. Since then no problems until recently. Updated virus shows no signs of virus. System diagnostics reveals nothing, and no "problem devices."

Well you already did the obvious troubleshooting, let's try something a little different, eliminate the unnecessary, too many devices on a system maybe overtaxing the power supply, too many programs are interferring with memory software such as screen savers and anti-virus software Reseat the CPU and memory modules, check the system board for damage, shorts, frayed wires and bad connections.
