Random rebooting during use

Gigabyte Mirco atx motherboard ga-ma78lm...
May 1, 2010 at 12:29:27
Specs: Windows 7
I asked about it elsewhere and was told that my CPU isnt being given enough voltage (Dualcore 3.00ghz amd athlon) and need to know how to increase it, and how much to increase it to.

It will boot up fine sometimes, but when its warmed up, it will autoreboot and just reboot endlessly just before it loads windows. (doesnt autoreboot in the bios menu though. has NEVER done it there)

System Specs;

not enough info about the system specs. I suspect cpu overheating or bad psu, what is the cpu temp? better check in bios.

CPU temp is a cool 43c and raises to a maximum of 46c

Never goes any higher.

I can almost guarantee you that it's not the CPU voltage. Turn off the auto-restart feature in Windows & a BSOD will be displayed telling you what the problem is.

And how am I suppose to do that? There is no option for what you said in the bios.
