My computer keeps shutting down randomly and its driving me insane. There is no correlation between shutdowns. I might be playing a game or just on google. The computer could have been running for 5 minutes or 3 hours. The screen just turns black, the computer turns off, and then it turns back on. I checked the logs after all the shutdowns and it usually says "DHCPv4 client registered for shutdown notification". I also monitor the temperature of the CPU and GPU and they are both always below 50C. I built the computer less than a month ago and it has been happening since the beginning. My PSU is a Corsair CX750M, CPU is a i7 9700k, GPU is a GTX 2060ti, motherboard is a gigabyte b365m ds3h, SSD is a 1tb samsung 860 QVO, and 16gb of gskill ddr4 ram. Any help would be great. Thank you!

Random reboots are usually caused by the PSU, the RAM or software AND in that order of likely-hood.
PSU - If you can borrow/swap a PSU for testing. sibling/friend you can swap out the PSU and each system will be testing the other.
RAM - run the system with one stick of RAM see if stability returns if not Test all the RAM with memtest 86 for five passes or overnight. if you get no 0 errors after more than five passes the ram is good. with the random reboots I would suggest running this test after the PSU swap or after the PSU has been cleared.
Software - Drivers or other issues can cause reboots. Boot to a linux distro on a USB drive. mint linux will boot to memtest86. you can run the OS from the USB and await reboot.

90% of the time this is a PSU issue. I would check all the plugs and reset the CPU and Ram sticks. BTW, did you purchase the RAM as a kit or seperately? This can also cause shutdowns.
Yeah thats what Ive heard. I did an extensive check on all the cables yesterday and they all seemed good. I purchased it seperatly.
