    My PC sometimes randomly restarts itself. There is no warning, no BSOD or anything, it just restarts. I had the same problem few months ago. Then my PC totally stopped working, because the HDD was broken and now after some time it starts appearing again (kernel power). I don't know what causes it or why, but it's annoying. I think my CPU is not overheating,
    I use Windows 10 home 64 bit OS.

    Unfortunately those screenshots just show that the PC has has powered off unexpectedly, without any warning (there is no debug information to speak of). Do you have any other entries in event viewer around the same time? It doesn't look like it, but I thought I should check.

    It sounds like you've got a hardware problem unfortunately, as you'd normally get a BSOD if there was a software problem. Did changing the HDD fix the problem last time? I wouldn't have guessed that would cause this sort of error (but it can), the usual culprit would be a failing PSU.

    Does this problem happen if your PC is under load (gaming perhaps), or just randomly?

    Could you please let us know your system specs, including PSU if possible.
