[SOLVED] Why is my computer rebooting and BSoDing on its own

Okay, so I bought my current computer on April of 2018. Ever since then, it's been shutting down on its own, most of the time without warning whatsoever, and restarting after a few seconds. Sometimes it shows the BSoD, with the result being the same. That would happen daily, weekly or just monthly.

These past three days though it's been rebooting on its own, like, 4 times a day. Today I was forced to do a format, because for the first time it even showed me an error saying that "Windows could not load."

If anyone can help me here, I would appreciate it.

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.
