    If the test result of the PSU is good, it means it is not broken. But it does not say anything else, so the PSU won't be ruled out completely.

    Heya axe0, sorry for the wait. I finally got my multimeter back and checked the parts that used molex connecters. All readings were normal (checked against the post readings). Any next steps?

    Do you have install media of another OS?
    This way we can be certain if it is or a bug in 10 or the main board.

    I have the install discs for Windows 8.1 that I used before I took the free upgrade.

    OK, insert the install media and boot from it.
    Clean install it, install every update available (but windows 10), don't install drivers and see how it goes.

    Hey axe0, sorry for the wait. Past two days my interent was out, but that was an Ethernet jack problem, not the PC. The thing is, when I opened up my case to test the PSU, I noticed the motherboard power cable was loose, I pushed it and it clicked into position, is it possible the crashes could have been caused by the loose cable? I'm not sure if it was loose the whole time or how it got loose in the first place. All I know is, since then I haven't crashed once, so for about 3 days now. I was thinking, before installing windows 8.1 again, maybe I should do regular stuff on my computer and see if it crashes, and if it does I can rule out the power cable. Thoughts? I was thinking of putting some regular programs back on and running games to see how the computer handles it, since that's generally when I get crashes. Perhaps driver verifier also?

    A loosy cable means the power didn't went through the system properly, it certain can cause crashes.

    I wouldn't use verifier for the time being, just test your system with the programs

    Hey everyone, wanted to wait a long long time before I marked this as solved because I didn't want to jinx it :P But I haven't had any crashes for two weeks now so I think its safe to say the problem was the power cable. Haha, that's embarrassing, month of troubleshooting and it was just a loose cable. Anyways thanks so much for your help axe0 and essenbe, I appreciate everything and learned quite a bit. Ten Forums is awesome and if I have any trouble again I'll be sure to come here for help. Once again, thank you guys so much.

    Don't feel bad. Happens to the best of us. One of my BSODs, boot up error was due to a shoddy SATA data cable.
