I have a problem with pc rebooting unexpectedly everytime I stop doing something that needs a lot of resources. For example everytime I play something (e.g. Rainbow Six Siege, F12018, GTA V) the game runs smoothly with no problem, but when I return to the games menu or when the round ends or something like that when the enormous power of the pc isn't needed anymore, when it can finally rest for a while, it reboots. The screen goes of, it makes short crackling sound on speakers and restarts. Then it just starts up normally like nothing happened. No blue screen, no notice from Windows that it has crashed, nothing. If I go to check my Windows reliability log it just says that "Windows has shut down unexpectedly." In the Windows logs there is a notice of a critical error and it says the following:

Are you by any chance connected on a surge protector if so try connecting power direct to AC

WMD is OK but you cannot beat memtest
I recommend TWO complete passes each pass consisting of 10 or so tests


so as you can see on the attachment you are 41% of the pass and 70% of test 4.
So you run to 100% of the pass which as I say will be 10 or so tests
Then you let it run again

You will read suggestions that you need more than two passes. That is not the case except for the most occasional and unusual of errors.
99% of errors will be found on even the first pass.
