Computer acts like its dying, if someone could try to diagnose the problem, it would be greatly appreciated <3

Hi! So about a week ago, my computer (on Windows 8 btw) blue screened a couple of times, and it gave me the message K_MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED which then resulted in a reboot loop. A couple of days later, things seemed alright but then the computer started frequently (every 30min to 5hrs) doing one of 2 things. Either it literally shut down without a blue screen, and just started going in a reboot loop which sometimes resulted in me having to unplug it, or the computer literally froze and became unresponsive and I had to manually shut it down. I ran a diagnostics test and detected nothing, meaning it's probably not hardware, maybe software? Something to do with the bios? If somebody needs my DxDiag or smthn, I will supply it and any help is greatly appreciated.  Thank you! -Misha.

Hmm.. seems like you did some troubleshooting yourself- have a look at this website if you already haven't and maybe follow the steps  http://windowsreport.com/kmode-exception-windows-10/

Seems pretty bad, but since it passed ePSA tests (assuming you already did it-whole thing), I'll assume that there is no hardware issues which would servely affect your system

In this case...

I would recommend doing a Nuke-and-Pave! 

Quoted from Tesla1856:

'If it passes ePSA (outside of Windows)...

I would Image Backup system and then try a complete Nuke-and-Pave ... clean Windows install followed by drivers:
