Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS.

Look in Reliability History and Event Viewer for error codes and warnings that occurred at the times when the pc goes black or restarts.

Did you open the case to inspect all components and cables? Look for signs of burning, blackening/browning.

Be sure to shutdown the computer and unplug it before opening the case.

If you are not comfortable opening the case then find a knowledgeable family member or friend to help.

PSU could be the problem. Make, model, wattage, age, condition?

There is some PSU testing that can be done if you have a multi-meter and know how to use it.

Again, get someone to help if and as necessary.

Not a full test per se as the PSU is not under load. However, if a voltage is out of spec then the PSU is indeed very suspect.
