I was playing Oblivion on my computer, and all of a sudden it froze up. I couldn't exit or anything, so I manually restarted my computer with the button. The computer booted up, and asked me how to start windows. I told it to start normally, and the computer restarted. This happened again, and I tried restarting it in safe mode. Happened again! I don't know what happened and why. Oblivion usually works just fine, and I didn't change any settings or anything. The only thing that did change was my monitor, which I had replaced earlier that day. However, that worked for a while. What just happened?

1) Start your computer
2) At Windows Advanced Options screen, select Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure and press enter
3) Let it boot
4) Report back with the precise error message, you see on BSoD :)

It just randomly started working again. Weird...

I'd still do as Supreet suggested. This will insure that if this happens in the future your computer will provide you with a related error message (in the form of everyone's favorite BSOD) rather than just restarting.
