Look in Action Center, Maintenance, View Reliability History and look for errors (or updates) that are causing restarts.

You can also look in Event Viewer (Admin Tools) for errors. I find Reliability Monitor a little easier to review.

Is it restarting because of automatic updates?
Or restarting automatically after system failure?
Try unchecking "Automatically Restart" in the Startup & Recovery section of the System Properties... See attached.

This will let you know if the system is faulting.

also overheating is a possible cause - check that the fans are spinning quickly (and quietly) - they may need cleaning with an air duster.
