If that's the case, is there anything I can do about that? Sorry, I'm not very good when it comes to computers.
It could be the motherboard or more likely the PSU (stock desktops usually have scandalously crap PSU's...). You could replace either yourself but if it's a desktop you should expect it to be able to run for at least a year 24/7. The laws are hazy (6 months is the only mandatory product life) but breaking down after a year is definitely abnormal.
