comment Computer Randomly Powers Off. What's The Cause?
Just an update, since I posted this question just over a week ago I haven't had one random shutdown and hopefully whatever it was, it's fixed (knock on wood). I also ordered a new PSU online as this Rocketfish one is old and is going to fail sooner or later.

comment Computer Randomly Powers Off. What's The Cause?
It looks like a new (proper and reliable) power supply would be $200+ which I don't have right now so I tried a few different things. I opened the case, took out all the internal SATA, power and USB connectors and then put them back in. I took out the triple channel RAM chips and now there's just 1x8GB RAM chip in. There was also a screw that came out of no where when I turned the case on its side. I put the computer in and then out of sleep mode 5 times and it didn't shutdown. Now that could've just been luck so I'll have to wait and see if it does it again.

There's also an error in the event viewer saying The Intel(R) Rapid Storage Technology service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s). but that is showing before or after the computer randomly shuts down. I think I'll just run to the store and buy a power supply. If it still does it, then I can always take it back.

comment Computer Randomly Powers Off. What's The Cause?
I went into BIOS and it looks like the integrated graphics card should be disabled automatically as the only setting for "Initiate Graphics Card" is PEG (PCIE Graphics?) or IDG (Integrated Graphics Device?). That setting is set to PEG. My old motherboard (ASUS P6T) didn't have an onboard graphics card. As for the Event Viewer, I've checked that a dozen times and the only error that pops out is The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. (which BugcheckCode is set to 0)

comment Problems With Windows 8.1 Metro Tiles and Apps
Just a note that I stated in my question I stated A system restore didn't work (because the restore point was corrupt) and a refresh wouldn't work either (I have no idea why).

comment Case fan not spinning
I looked at the back of my case and saw that they are fan speed controls and they were both set to low. I changed them to high and the fan that wasn't spinning, spins now. Also, before the other fan would only spin once Windows was booting. Now they both spin right when I turn on the computer. Thanks!
