Okay so there was honestly, nothing wrong with my computer until around Christmas time, my cousin kept shutting off my computer whenever I turned it on. When he finally left, windows went to go recover some of my files, which concerned me, but I went on and played some video games. But a few weeks later, I turned on my computer and a minute or so when it started up and you could see the background and apps and everything, it flashes black then restarts itself. It's frustrating because I've googled this and I've found solutions, but my computer won't stay on long enough for me to solve the problem :/ (or attempt to)
Any help is appreciated! Thanks :)

Post the make/model of the PC. If custom built post the specs.

Post the temp and voltage readings from the BIOS.

Can you boot the PC into Safe Mode?

nevermind i found the problem
it's the video card and the little cylinder things (capacitors??) have seemed to have burst. I think it is safe to say that i need a new video card? For the time being i'll just use my brother's sucky video card. No video games for me until i buy a new one. Oh well. But thank you for your help guys :)

GPU failure is commonly caused by using a low quality/underpowered PSU.
