May I suggest this
PSU- Jump Start

for a reference
PowerSupply 101: A Reference Of Specifications - Power Supplies asyou will see there is a +/- 5% variance that can make all the difference so11.4v is way too low and 12.6v way too high.

If the machine is that old then maybe this could be a problem and also the mobo mate as I have just been fixing an older DDR2 machine and the volts according to Speccy and CPUID HWMonitor are out of whack.
The other thing I found is too that the fan headers are not getting the correct volts from the 24 pin input that is the 24 pin volts are ok but the headers are not and at least 0.5v down on what they should be. Now it may be that your RAM is not getting the correct power (volts) or anything else for that matter.

Maybe worth checking out what volts are on the board but do not use an analogue multimeter for this as they inject volts to diagnose!!

I haven't installed any hardware except for one time before the random bluescreens and restarts were happening I tried a stick of RAM my friend had which wasn't compatible nor did it work. For software, only antiviruses that I've been going through to make sure it wasn't a virus. That was after I started having problems. But I uninstalled all the antiviruses except for 1. When I ran Furmark it ran at 8fps and my GPU temp kept rising and it kept flashing white patches on the top and bottom of my screen every second so I stopped the test after 30 seconds. I don't know if that's bad or not. I'm running SeaTools at the moment but nothing has come up for that so far. My computer isn't overclocked so that can't be the problem. I just get so frustrated knowing I can't even buy a new PC if i never resolve this problem
Ill try to get Memtest to run but the motherboard screen stays for like a second so i cant read anything. First world problems

frigasaca, first, please tell me what Brand, model and Wattage your PSU is. Second, What you describe as 'white specs' during Furmark are called artifacts and means your video card is having issues. That should not happen. Furmark is a video card stress test. Any stress test is designed to make your temps rise rapidly How high did thet rise? Please go to Nvidia and see if you have the latest WHQL driver installed. If not download it to your desktop and advise us, and we will tell you how to install it. With memtest86+ go here and half way down the page are the downloads. Go to the 4.20 version. The 5th one down is 'Auto Installer for USB key', download it and it will automativally install it to a USB thumb drive you have connected. It will erase everything on it, so save any contents somewhere to replace when finished. Leave the USB drive connected to your computer, go to bios, then boot options. Select the USB key as 1st boot device, save and exit, memtest should start. run 8 full passes (it will take quite a few hours, so best to run it at night) Run it until it says 8 passes or until you get an error. It will tell you. If you get an error, you can stop the test by pressing the escape button; the test failed. After the test is completed, return to where you were in bios and set your boot order the way it is was before you selected the USB drive as 1st boot device. Save and exit.

I got memtest working and I ran it at 8 passes, twice. There was one error the first time, and none the second. Before I did the second test I took out my RAM modules and then put them back in.

Does this mean my graphics card is the problem?

It means your graphics card is a good possibility, but
it could also be other problems. In your system specs it says 2 sticks of 2 and 1 GB ram. If you are running mis matched ram, the ram could also be the problem. I'd also like to know your readings of your PSU's +12V, +5V and + 3.3V.

How do you suggest I test my PSUs Volts? Or what is the best guide and easiest way. Sorry if this is a stupid question but I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to this.

This program will get your volts, get the one for your 32 or 64 bit system.
HWiNFO, HWiNFO32/64 - Download

Your BIOS will give volts too under Monitor or something like that.
