It doesn't restart "for no reason", you just don't know what that reason is. Most likely, you have Windows configured to automatically restart rather than displaying the error message. So the 1st thing you need to do is turn that off.

And list the specs to your new PSU. The fact that you blew one up is not a good sign, hopefully you didn't buy a $20 generic cheapie to replace it.

"And i didnt buy a new one,my dad-s friend gave it to me"

Regardless of where it came from, post the specs...make/model & wattage, plus the ampergae ratings on the +3.3v, +5v & +12v rails.

One cause of random reboots is an inadequate or overloaded PSU. And like I said, the fact that you blew one up means something's wrong, unless your original PSU was woefully underpowered & simply buckled under the strain.

OK, it's a low end piece of crap made by L&C Technologies out of Taiwan...notice the "LC-B400ATX" model number. It's sold under many different brand names. Here's one listed on eBay for $12:

VPower-LC-B400ATX-400-Watt-ATX-Switching-Power-Supply
