Question Computer rebooted

Last night my computer rebooted for no appearant reason when I was working in Photoshop. I check the cpu temp and it was fine. I didn't receive any system beep warnings or anything before it happened either. Could it be a loose cable? It hasn't happened since last night so I'm not too worried but I was just curious. Thanks.

Yeah I think everyone gets a random reboot at some point or another. Sh!t just happens sometimes. Now if it becomes a frequent problem, then there's things to check into. If you want to check your memory to make 100% it's ok then download a program called memtest86+ and put it on a bootable floppy or CD and boot from that and it'll diagnose the memory
