Need more system information to tell if the power supply is enough (Make, Model Number or complete component list and all add ons like video cards, as well as anything that was changed from the original specs. etc.
It probably has nothing to do with your BIOS unless you have been making adjustments or replaced the CPU without clearing the CMOS or at least resetting to defaults.
If you changed any hardware you will need to update drivers.
You will need to scan with your updated antivirus program AND with Malwarebytes to eliminate an infection as a possible cause.
Check the internal temperatures from your BIOS to see if you have an overheating problem.
Are you getting any warnings? What do the event logs say?
You will need to test some hardware:
Run Memtest86 to test your memory for errors.
Run hard drive test utility from your hard drive mfg's website.

The more information, the better we can help you. "Keeps Crashing" is not much to go by, post everything asked for as well as any test results, and we may be able to narrow it down quite a bit more for you.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
