Is your Windows computer restarting randomly?
Don’t worry, we’ve you covered.
This is a pretty annoying issue, but as luck would have it, it is also really easy to solve. In this post, we’ve listed 4 solutions to this problem.

Solution 3 – Update the graphic card
Many a time, this issue occurs due to corrupt, old, or incorrect graphic card driver. To solve the issue, you’d need the latest driver.
How can you get that?
Well, there are two ways: update driver manually or use a driver update software. We recommend the latter, but have listed the steps for both ways, so you can decide for yourself which one you’d like to use.
Update Driver Manually
Here are the steps you need to perform to update graphic card driver manually.
- Press Windows logo key + R together to bring up the Run command
- In Run command, type devmgmt.msc and click OK
- In the Device Manager, go to Display Adapters and expand it
- Note your graphics card and then go the graphic card manufacturer’s website. Locate and download the latest driver for your graphics card. Make sure the driver you download is compatible with your version of Windows.
- Next save the driver file in a suitable location, such as your desktop
- Now again open Device Manager, expand Display Adapters, right-click the graphics card and then click Update Driver
- In the next window, select Browse my computer for driver software.
- Click the Browse button, navigate to the location where you have saved the driver file, andselect it.
- Click the Next button and follow onscreen instructions
- Restart your computer
Update Driver Automatically
As you can see, updating driver manually is tedious, not to mention a little complicated and time-consuming. If you want an easier, and perhaps a more accurate, way to update the graphics card driver, use DriverDownloader. It will update your graphic card driver in a jiffy.
To get automatic updates, don’t forget to register after you download and install DriverDownloader. Also, registered users are well-supported by a reliable customer support team and can get a refund if they don’t like the software, as long as they initiate the process within 30 days of their purchase.

Solution 4 – Check Power Issue
Some users have said that in their cases power issue caused the PC to reboot randomly. If none of the above solutions have worked for you, it might be worth the trouble to try replacing power cables or even power supply unit to check if that makes a difference.
