Show them how it BSOD's and then have them check the motherboard like I suggested.
I have a feeling it is either the PSU is faulty or the motherboard has a faulty capacitor or the south\north bridges are failing.

Yes. The BSOD are no longer as random as before so it'll be easy to show them what's happening.

Well, it turns out that the problem was the processor they had recently installed; it was defective. I've been running my computer for almost a week just to make sure it was indeed the problem and not false hope and not a single crash ever since. :D

Thank you for your assistance, I learned quite a bit about my computer and what test to perform should another problem were to happen in the future. I appreciate the help.

:D

HE did all the hard work.

Good luck with it.
