What makes you think it's related to the hard drive? Could be an overheating CPU....could be an overburdened power supply....could be a software/driver glitch....could be you still have automatic restart enabled....etc. You didn't list your system specs or anything about when the restarts occur so we have almost nothing to go on. And why did you list XP in the tag list if you're running Win7?
