My System Specs

Default computer acting strange random reboot/bluescreen

had my computer for about two years now and 5 days ago I was playing a game and my computer bluescreened. I didn't read it in time for what error and now today I was playing a game and it randomly reboot with no bluescreen. it took a little longer to boot and when it did my desktop was all black then loaded the wallpaper went black again then finally loaded all my shortcuts and wallpaper. I have checked device manager no error there and generated a system health report but it all checked out. Any help would be much appreciated.
