PowerSpec G472 - random reboot from BugCheck

First Comment
edited March 19 in PowerSpec

My computer worked flawlessly for 5 months. Then, 4 months ago, suddenly does random blue screen incidents and takes 7 minutes to reboot, whether it does it or I initiate the reboot. Done 2 Windows re-installs and several command prompts via chat by Microsoft. I'm still getting the random restarts, though now it reboots in a normal length of time. Event Viewer says the computer "rebooted from a BugCheck". It might be after a day, a couple of days, a week. Usually I am not using the computer when it happens, it's just running with programs open. It's not always the same time of day. Not always the same programs open. I've tried plugging into different power outlets, 12awg extension cords (too far from any outlets to plug in directly). Currently it's plugged into a UPS. UPS is rated for enough watts to cover the computer's power supply. Tried unchecking "automatically restart", and got blue screen instead of restart. Anyone have any ideas what's going on? Did I just get a lemon? BTW, my office computer (a Mac) doesn't have these problems. Thank you for the help!
