I did search the site for a W-10 resolve to this but couldn't find one. I have posted on this problem in the past but am finding added explanations of the critical errors. For some reason, at least 3-4 times a week and sometimes everyday, my PC reboots automatically and of course, when I'm not around to see what leads to it. I am running W-10 (updated to latest) on a Dell Inspiron 3847. When it does the auto-reboot, the Event Viewer shows numerous entries of,

There are a total of 35 entries of this issue dating back to 11/11/2020. Everything else is running fine. When it reboots, it is on my Desktop. When I open Firefox, It opens all the TABS I had open prior to the auto-reboot. Would like to fix this issue in case it is leading to something bigger. Ideas???

Your 300W power supply might be the problem. Don't do this if it makes you uncomfortable: PSU Test

Thanks Corday. Not sure if I'm comfortable doing this as you mentioned. The PC is a few years old so if it comes to a hardware issue like this, may just buy a new one. I'm going to wait to see if there are any other thoughts about this.
