  1. Best answer
    You can check Event Viewer (Start > Search > Event Viewer > Windows Logs > System Logs) to see what Windows says about it crashing if anything around the time it happens.

    But, most likely, it's your power supply.

    I'm somewhat surprised prime95 doesn't cause it to crash, but if it's turning off then it's a power draw issue.

  2. I bet it's your PSU.
    Try running prime95 and kombuster(Or something to load out your graphics card).
    It will restart again, i bet.
    Then replace PSU with something with a bit more power.
  3. Okay, ill try a new psu. I will reply soon if it works or not.

    Edit: Got a new PSU in and it works :) Thanks for helping!
