Trying to Get back into PC gaming however recently when I boot up my PC at 1st running steam would cause I sudden reboot with no warning or explanation. After this I tried to run discord and it would freeze the app on authenticating. Now when I reboot windows functions won't even pop up, like task manager start menu settings and windows update. However when I reboot again it says Windows Update is running. Always gives me an infinite loading restart when I click restart anyway.
When booting in safe mode with networking windows features are available however trying to update is a no go. Troubleshooting says error code 0x803c0103. Should I restore my PC? I'm at wits end. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Update: So I did a registry check, deleted malware, defragmented, and updated my drivers. My computer has been a lot faster! However I am still getting sudden reboots or freezing in general. Events viewer tells me:
Event ID 41 - Kernel Power; 11 Times in 24hrs
Looking it up it says maybe a faulty PSU or too much wattage but the PSU can handle 550w. I'm gonna check the connections internally when I get home but any suggestions would be cool.
