    I have a question that I didn’t see covered, I have a desktop PC that continuously resets itself. I tried to do a system restore to a previous date but, that didn’t work. I tried shutting it down, even unplugging it but that doesn’t work, I also tried running a virus scan in safe mode but nothing seems to work and this is a fairly new computer. Please HELP!!
