Hi, Ibrahim.
Yiu should check the temperature of hardware, as it seems like overheating.
The cause might be in:
-video card
-memory
-CPU Fan
Probably you need once more cooler.

it also could be a software issue, like a driver conflict

Power Supply!

Then again, surffing the net shouldn't be *too* processor intensive... but still. Go into your BIOS screen and have a look at the "hardware monitor". If your CPU is getting over 70C, or your voltqages are unsteady, it could be causing a reboot.
