In short during gameplay everything runs fine for a while and then randomly the screen goes black and after a few seconds the computer restarts itself. I don't have my browser open during gameplay and hardware acceleration is off anyway also i don't have discord either so having read through on here that theory goes out the window in my case. I'm stuck for ideas as the issue as its a new build system being only a week old as my previous died a couple of weeks ago.
