    What is the data on your setup, like cpu, ram, power wire size (to opus), is the car running, any other stuff you can think of?

    That is a good idea. Test it by taking the PC inside and running it off standard ATX supply for a bit.

    As to where to start troubleshooting a pc that randomly reboots (note that you must run the pc for several days or until you notice it randomly rebooting again after each step):
    1) replace (or swap w/ another pc) the ram. If that doesn't work, goto 2.
    2) format and reinstall. If not fix, goto 3.
    3) Power supply replace/swap. In not fix, goto 4.
    4) disconnect everything from motherboard except hard drive and video (also remove all pci/isa/other cards. If not fixed, goto 5. Otherwise, one of those components is the problem.
    5) cpu swap/replace. If not fixed, goto 6.
    6) Motherboard may be bad.

    this is the first signs of overdraw on your opus, try eliminating some of the load, suplimenting with a seperate power supply for a few accessories, or underclocking...

    If you can't underclock, you can try running drives off of another 12v power supply to relieve the opus a little, just trigger the source from the opus & you'll never know the difference, but I would recommend common grounds. it may just be as simple as powering your dvd drive seperately, or you may need to remove another accessory or two, or just power a usb hub seperate from the opus, depends on how overloaded your opus is...
