Default My computer is restarting on it's own when I load it up :<

When I turn off my computer and start it again, it'll freeze and restart a lot of times. It's really annoying actually... I think there might be something wrong with my computer in general but I've done scans with my anti-virus and it isn't picking anything up :< any help would be appreciated.

Here's my hijackthis-

Try going into safe mode. (I'm confused, are you able to boot normally sometimes, skip entering safe mode if you can boot into windows)
Spam F8 right the windows starts, there should be an option "Boot into Safe Mode"
After you enter safe mode.

Right click my computer -> Properties -> Advanced Tab -> Startup and Recovery: Settings -> uncheck Automatically restart
Copy the text under Small dump directory:
Start -> Run -> Paste the text -> Ok is there any files there?
If there are download Blue screen of death (STOP error) information in dump files. with another PC and run it it should show certain files that are highlighted you can either google it or report it back here.

Have you installed/update anything recently?
Laptop or Desktop?
If laptop, does it feel very hot in any parts of the laptop?
How does the freezing appear as, still image and can't move mouse and keyboard, any graphical artifacts or does it just automatically restart at random?
Freezing occurs on heavy loads or even when left alone?

The hard drive could by dying, or a fan could be dying/not working. I had the same exact problem with my old computer.

Try the safe mode and disabling the auto restart thing or the bluescreen view if you can startup.

It could be a BSOD, so you might want to see what error is it having.

The thing is it isn't a blue screen of death.. my uncle dusted out my computer so it doesn't really restart on start up anymore but lately while playing trickster, sometimes (completely random) it makes a sort of "glitching" noise on my computer like a metal scratching on a chalkboard but its really quiet and short, then it just restarts o-o it's weird..

Just a suggestion since a similar thing happened with my old pc before (except we didnt have a weird sound, the pc just restarts when we try to play some certain games)
While the computer was shut down, took out the video card and cleaned the "teeth" by wiping the dirt off with an eraser
Be really careful if you decide to try this

Check the SMART on the hard drive, use something like HDTune, see if the numbers are at least normal, at least for spin up. (It'll tell you if it's normal.)
