I woke up today to a computer that seems to be wanting to reboot semi-randomly, usually while idle or while doing low-resource activities (playing the original Doom, recording some mic audio via USB interface [not being monitored via ASIO or anything, just straight to the drive]). I had a similar issue a few years ago that was due to bad RAM, so I tried pulling out a RAM stick, and only having one stick in seemed to cause the PC to reboot faster than normal, so I stuck the other one in and it seemed stable. Got back from a meeting and it promptly rebooted again within 10-15 minutes, failed to boot three times (triggering W10's recovery menu), upon which I booted into safe mode just to check; it idled fine for about 10-15 mins then rebooted soon after. Then I booted back into standard Win10 and it's been fine for the past 20-30 minutes.
Temps are generally fine, nothing uncharacteristic as far as I can tell, ambient is around 28-30 degrees C usually (28-29 C at the time of writing) for reference.
Attached is the Sysnative folder as well as the Event Viewer logs that I've seen be requested on this forum in older posts (did a bit of looking around when I first started encountering the issue). Speccy link is http://speccy.piriform.com/results/disVeo6h1iVCPMKpSRr5sUP
Will be borrowing a PSU to test and eliminate one hardware variable, although given how inconsistent it is (spurts of rebooting followed be relative stability) I'm not sure how quickly I'll be able to tell. EDIT: Forgot I also had a spare GPU with a friend, will try plugging that one in first since it's less of a hassle...
I'll run the memtest and hard drive tests over the weekend, possibly. Both of my SSDs (system drive and games drive) check out fine in CrystalDiskInfo, although I did encounter a random Chkdsk upon boot 2-3 weeks ago...
I also postponed Windows update after reading that the Fall (?) update was deleting some peoples' files and forgot to enable it again, although I'm not sure if not updating would cause sudden problems in system stability.
Thanks in advance! Do let me know if more info is needed, or if I left something important out.
BIG FAT EDIT: Soon after I posted this the computer shut down and entered a bit of a boot loop: the power LED comes on, then goes off, then it tries to boot again, and it goes off, etc. Boots up after turning the PSU off and back on again. Not sure if this helps narrow it down, I'm thinking PSU but it could still be anything else really I guess (a problem with the RAM slots themselves? mobo? CPU? GPU?)
