Default odd restarting issue...

So I got this random issue on my desktop @ home.... It's a very odd random restart bug it only does it when its booting up. It can be under load running 6 routers in GNS3 or playing a game and not restart..but sometimes I'll be in the bios poking around and the machine restarts.. or i'll shutdown my linux partition to reboot into the windows partition and it will reboot in POST. The computer then informs me it failed to boot correctly do you want to return to default settings.

It only seems to do it when its first turning on... once the machine is on it stays on.

I'm thinking it might have something to do with the power switch on my case sense its very old and worn out or the PSU
