comment Computer randomly restarting: motherboard or processor?
Well, i initially sent the motherboard off for repairs and after they sent it back it was still failing. I then got them to just replace the motherboard and now it is working with the new replacement. Still no restarts last night or this morning.

Both the PSU are the exact same PSU. Gold @ 1K watts. More than enough for my setup. I actually only need around 700-800 watts. So far, the replacement motherboard is working. Will have more details tomorrow.

@JanDoggen: Thanks, i have seen so many people online with the same issue and almost no solutions or the poster never confirms the success or failure to find the problem, they just disappear. I want to make sure that i finish. This way, it may help someone else.

I have already tried a second working CPU. And it was still failing. I just talked to ASUS again and they are going to replace the motherboard this time. Hopefully the problem will be resolved with the new one.

Ran it on the desk and it was still happening. Tried moving to different outlet in the house. Still happening.

I have not tried turning off sound in the bios and running mobo outside case. When running the mobo outside the case, i should leave the standoffs attached and just let it sit on my desk or something, correct? Making sure nothing is shorting out the lines.

It goes straight to black and starts restarting. I have formatted several times trying to resolve this issue. The last time i checked safe mode, it rebooted while in safe mode. That was before i sent the motherboard to get repairs.

I have already done the replacement method. And it appeared that it was the motherboard that was causing the issue. That is why i RMA'd it. After i got the mobo back, i am still having the issue. I may try replacement method again, to see if i come to the same conclusion.

My other computer, identical components except hdd and case, is one outlet over and is working fine. I was going to move the malfunctioning computer to a different outlet tonight and see if the problem persists. If it does, i will see if i can get a UPS from somewhere just to test.

I RMA'd the motherboard and the issue is still happening. They said they found something wrong with the motherboard and repaired it, but it is still randomly restarting.

I have still been having the issue, this is not resolved. I RMA'd the motherboard and they said they found an issue with it and repaired it. However, i am still having the issue.

I disconnected the power button completely and it would still restart.

I have actually tried vigorously shaking and wobbling cords while it is running and it does not seem to cause the problem. Also, it will happen when no one is even touching it. Completely randomly.

comment HDD is preventing ubuntu from installing
Not yet, i was waiting to see if any others had suggestions and i was probably going to buy a new internal hdd for my laptop to see if that fixes it.

Never dropped it. It just started acting like this after i attempted to install ubuntu. I might try to put windows back on to see what happens. I will try your bios suggestion and the windows thing and let you know what happens. Thanks
