For the last couple of months I have been experiencing random (uninitiated) system restarts. Sometimes there will be a BSOD that contains a generic message (KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE is the last I remember), but typically it is an outright restart. After doing some research, I gathered that I should 1.) Run a Chkdsk, 2.) Test my RAM, 3.) Update my drivers. I completed the first two tasks and attempted to locate all the drivers I need. The restarts still persist. I feel like my problem pertains to the drivers. Assuming that is the issue, I'm not completely sure on how to dissect logs properly to figure out which ones are causing conflicts. In the mean time, I'll run Driver Verifier and see what happens.
