My computer restarts everytime i play a game because of a "power surge"

Every since Sunday 25th, my computer restarts itself, saying "Power supply surges detected during the last power on. ASUS Anit-Surge was triggered to protect system from unstable power supply unit!". I built this computer 4 weeks ago and i've had no problems with it until it started doing this last Sunday. When the computer is idle, it runs completely fine, but when i boot up a game, the entire computer resets. I am thinking of disabling Anti-Surge in the BIOS, but i am scared that the supposed "power surges" will take out my system. Please help!

Thanks in advance!

It saids on both HWMonitor and HWinfo that 12 volts are being used on the +12V and 5V on the +5V under load.

Should i try disabling Anti-Surge? I read that the problem i have is solved when you disable anti-surge.
 


You can if the power in your area is stable.
