Before attempting anything I highly suggest you to update the bios first. If it isn't a clean windows install, either nuke your current drive and do a fresh install or make a partition and install windows on a clean partition (easy to remove).

I suggest you to try it and see what error code you get. It would be useful for us if you posted the error list (the program will give you one).

PS: not the first time I've heard about that power surge thing. Have you updated the motherboard BIOS? It could be buggy.

I've used the program while it crashed, however when I opened it after I crashed, it doesn't say the reason I've crashed and only shows a few crash I've gotten about a few weeks ago.

I've had the same problem a month ago, and before that around a year ago.
First time it was the PSU (Antec HCP 1200), it started doing this and then one day it didn't turn on at all. I took apart the PSU and there was a nice brown stain (caused by heat, probably) where a MOSFET was. Then I bought an EVGA G2 1600W.
Last month, doubting it was the PSU, I began monitoring the voltages (which were normal), and then went to reseat everything, turns out my second video card was a little wobbly on it's socket. After reseating it stopped.

What GPU are you using? I'm using a Strix 1070 and it's pretty new so maybe it might not be my GPU

3 4GB 290X's... two from XFX with EK waterblocks and a third that I "inherited" from a friend from ASUS, aircooled for now...
