I'm having the problem with rebooting as well. So, i called the tech support and they told me it could be - RAM, CPU, hard disk or motherboard problem.
So, the easiest way to rule out was RAM - i had 1024 mb (2x512 mb), simply i removed one 512 mb module and ran Prime95 test for 5 days in a row, so far - no rebooting and no errors shown in the test. I'm going to send the old module back to the reseller and get a new one and see how it would work.

However I'm not sure if this is the answer, but my problem randomly just stopped occuring.
It always restarted while I was at three difference locations: Buddies house, GF's house, My house.
Now... I thought about why in the hell it was restarting there. I thought about how it wasn't getting enough air... wasn't the case. Then I thought about the notebook possibly not getting enough power. However if it wasn't getting enough power, it would just switch to battery. But those were my two thoughts, and I'm not sure exactly what was causing the restarts.
The difference between your problem and my old problem was that my puter always restarted while in gaming. Strange...
