Does the reboot correspond to the rainstorm?

Do you have UPS?

If time matches and no UPS I'd highly suspect a micro power faillure,
that other machines could over go, but that this specific machine
could not handle. It could be enough that a capacitor in the power
supply of the machine is drying out and the micro cut could not be
filtered as well as it used to be.

I'd not expect laptopn of TV to be affected by such micro shortage.
