rebooting problem

I have a linux 8.0 server that reboots all by itself for no reason that I can tell. I am very new, and have read and did a search on this but didn't find an answer. Could anyone please point me in the right direction to help me to pin point this problem and solve it.
Or at least tell me where to start.

Thank you

Try opening the case, unplugging and reseating everything, and blowing the dust out everything.

I would make sure I have good memory as well.

It would be interesting (helpful?)
to get more info, like: how often,
in which intervals the reboots occur,
whether you checked the systems
logfiles, ...

Thank you
I will try the above recomendations.
There are no set intervals when it just reboots,
it is very random. otherwise it runs fine except the random

I will open up the case and reseat everything and also check the memory

Thanks again

Just a thought, check your processor fan to see if it's gunked up. Also, does your somputer seem to act funny (ie - programs crashing and whatnot)?
