go into the BIOS and check the temps should be a pc health monitor in there. Look for CPU temp.

Also download everest:

once installed run it and go to computer then sensor it will tell you more temps.

also try installing the latest drivers for your comp most likely on the website for the company you bought it from.

Right I think my friend and I have found the problem. Whenever we open a game or a video the pc crashes/restarts. I've already downloaded the latest drivers and it's still messed up
