Question PC Reboots When Upgrading Drivers

For some reason recently, with the last 3 driver updates I've installed when it gets to the part where your monitor generally goes blank for a moment and comes back instead mine goes blank then after about a minute my PC is rebooting. However instead of booting back up it stays black and I hear the BIOS post beep but the screen is still black, then after maybe 30 sec another post beep and it keeps doing this until I power my PC off and back on. When it comes back up all seems well; the driver is installed, my games play fine etc. Very odd, any ideas wtf is going on?
