My computer reboots, mostly when I'm watching video. It's not a software problem, it's not a power supply problem, and I don't think it's a cpu overheating problem because it never gets hotter than 29C. And sometimes it reboots when it's at 26 or 27. What are the other possible causes of this? Memory or video card? Thanks in advance.

i recently had the same problem which was caused by a failing heatsink fan. it wasn't readily noticable because the fan was spinning most of the time.my pc would randomly reboot, seemed to happen when online (coinsidence)and thought it was a software problem. i had just installed a net card and left the case open till i was done testing. installing software and configuring damned interupts gave enough time to notice the fans rythm fluctuating. i watched for quite awhile longer to find the fan would stop and then spin up again.i replaced just the fan with one i had onhand and no more rebooting.
just one of the possible causes
