Just put the computer under as much load as you can for as long as you can to see what if anything happens

Not sure what I would conclude from this.
What if puppy OS doesn't crash at all. Pointing at faulty windows what then?
Other side what if puppy OS also freezes what then?
I quit puppy OS and started windows. I have been playing csgo since about 6 o'clock and it hasn't frozen or bsod. Don't know how this suddenly can happen

Computers can be fickle so we will have to wait and see, perhaps Windows detected the presence of a new OS and decided to behave itself

Well it behaved properly the whole day of the first of august but on the second of august it was freezing and even black screened and resisted rebooting.
It seems that if the pc has not been used for a while. It will run properly and as long as it stays on. However as soon as it shuts down and is restarted it acts up.
My guess is that because of a full power drain it works properly but when the circuits are still getting power when the second boot comes on it [bleep]s up? Could that be an explanation if yes what is happening? RAM maybe not properly cleared?

Using Puppy for longer would have been better and including connecting to the internet, reason being is that I suspect this is a Windows problem and possible related to hibernation or sleep, if opening lots of tabs while in Puppy, playing music etc does not cause the same behaviour it would support my suspicions about Windows, other than that I can only suggest a clean install of Windows 10 to see if that resolves the issue, always a last resort but unfortunately brand name computers do not seem to play nicely with upgrading to Windows 10 and especially if there are no Windows 10 specific drivers available for the hardware.

I have finally found it. I asked a repair company to come and help me, they saw what was the problem and they gave me a different RAM stick.
Upon which my computer has been blue and black screen free since this different RAM was inserted.
Also feeling pretty stupid that it could be localised by having extra RAM for testing lying around.
I am pretty sure that the problems have gone away I have had no other problems since then.
I want to thank you phillpower2 for helping me throughout this whole process and also learning me some things which will be very useful in the future Thanks!

While not ideal you at least appear to have now resolved the issue, strange that the bad RAM passed testing when put under load previously
You are welcome btw and thank you for letting us know that all is now well
