Computer keeps randomly shutting off.

edited August 2022 in General Discussion

I recently built a computer with parts I ordered from Amazon, and it always shuts down and restarts at least 3 times per game of Valorant or CS randomly. Even while trying to cleanly reinstall windows with a USB, it woudl restart while I was trying to hook it up to wifi, create a user and a password, etc. It only shuts down during downloads/videogames, but it is getting really annoying as I spent a fortune getting these parts and I built it all myself. Event viewer records an event 41 every time it happens, but I don't know what could be causing this issue, and I don't know if it's a simple PSU repurchase or a simple windows copy would fix it, but should I come in to a Microcenter and come get it fixed?
