I go into my DAW and do what I always do. I start playing with a drum synth then record a bass line with it and jam.

Today my pc stopped for about 10 seconds  and rebooted. It happened 3 times. I've never seen this before. Has anyone else ran into this? 

There's something about a stop code then a countdown then reboot

Very frustrating when I just want to play

I haven't seen anything like that except caused by IO drop-outs.

Pop open task manager. Is anything using your hard drive competing for resources?

Do you have 500 takes on each track?

Thanks for responding!

No my Audient  iD14 broke down and I've just been opening new projects to practice or jam with.

I did recently update windows. I'm also using my POD HD500x till my Audient comes back

Frustrating trying to down a backing track and all of a sudden the pc is rebooting

Could be one of any number of things... The reboot suggests overheating or maybe malware.

I see you have a Studio Cat-built system.  I suggest you give Jim Roseberry a call... Maybe he can remote in and figure out what the problem is.

Yes, I have seen that on at least three occasions I can recall.

Once it was a defective power supply. Once it was dust-clogged fans. The third time it was defective capacitors on the motherboard (if anyone remembers the Dell fake-cap episode some years ago).

So yup, it's hardware. First step: open your computer and give it a thorough cleaning, especially the power supply and CPU fans.

My old desktop pc started doing that a lot.  I eventually heard a tick in my tower. After pulling a plastic cover off I could see a wire from my main power switch was arcing on the frame.  Super fast blip was making it reboot. Id check your power connections just in case ..
