Engine restarts pc into blue screen of death. What to do?

Most of the time just doing things in a project causes my pc to restart and goes into the BSOD. This use to not be a problem until I downloaded Visual Studio 2017. I DONT THINK this project that it happens on has vs2017 on it. It has migrated assets from a project which was a duplicate of a line of duplicate projects from an original project. Another porject also does it too. It DOESNT have vs2017 on it. How do I fix this? It is annoying and really ruins what I want to do on UE 4. Is having vs2017 just a coincidence?

When I use UE4 it goes to the Blue Screen when it crashes a lot of the time. I went to event viewer and it says Kernel-Power had a critical event. What do I do about that? Do I need a new power supply?

Can you provide error type and code that appers in BSOD and you specs? other wise we wont know the cause

I dont get an error code but the error type is a critical kernel power event. Event id 41.

Actually it was the harddisk. I ran chkdsk and it worked.
